Haworthiopsis pubilication

Postby Bill » Thu Nov 16, 2017 12:02 am

The Succulent Society of South Africa recently published a special edition of its journal. It offers a complete treatise on the genus Haworthiopsis authored by Sean Gildenhuys, one of the owners of Kambroo Plants. The genus was recently established, when the Section Hexangulares in the genus Haworthia was placed in the genus Haworthiopsis. These plants have never before been treated as extensively, all taxa are illustrated with high quality photographs, mostly taken by the author. In addition there are three colour reproductions of exquisite paintings by the well known botanical artist, Gerhard Marx. It is a soft cover booklet in A4 format with 80 full colour pages.

I can thoroughly recommend this and if anyone in the UK/Europe is interested in a copy of this, message me and if there is enough interest, I will look to doing a bulk order which should make quite a saving on the postage costs.

Mainly Haworthia and Gasteria, a few other South African succulents and the odd spiky thing.

I might be tempted. What's the asking price?

Yeah, knowing non-bulk price could help us to decide...

For UK, it will be £12 including 1st class postage, so that saves you £3.13 on ordering it direct.

For EU I am afraid the cost of postage means it will be no cheaper than ordering direct £15.00 for 1 and £28.00 for 2

I will only have 25 copies,

Payment can be Paypal gift, direct to my bank, cheque. Message me to confirm your order and get full payment details.
