It's worth keeping an eye on https://www.cactuspro.com/forum/read.ph ... msg-679070 as Joël tends to post news about his TdC there.

Thanks Dave & Phil.
You do have to hand it to Joel Lode for his dedication to the task ( I found the first two volumes very interesting ) Talking to people like Joel ( I am thinking of Graham Charles and Frank Supplie and the like ) the first thing you notice after the obvious knowledge is the sheer enthusiasm which I find gives me the motivation to grow species and even genera I would not have tried.
Cactus pro. I do find is a very good site in general,and for doing research their library is excellent.
The more we learn (new plant finds & DNA etc ) shows yet again another example of just how little we know.

Joel and I have exchanged seeds a few times now. He keeps a list on his site of which species he is still missing for photographing for his books, always in flux. I had the pleasure of meeting him this year at the American cactus convention - he's a great speaker so go see his talk if you have the chance.
