At the end of this month Iwill have 16 huge Uebelmannia's for the modest price of 100? = about 65 Pound from someone who couldn't manage the heatingprices during winter ;I post them when I have them. Some people do not think at the difference in costs between 5? C for most of the cactusses and 15? C for Brazilians and blue cactusses.

Hi Dirk and welcome! I love your wife's plant. Your cactus at the back or your favourites looks old.. how old is it?

I have IE and as this is not my PC I can't install something else.

However I get the music (which I love!) and lots of cactus piccies without text. The text would be lost on me anyway, I'm a newbie. ;)

Happy carrier of Forby Disorder - an obsession with Euphorbia obesa.

NB. Anyone failing to provide a sensible name for me to address them will be called, or referred to, as Fred.

Well following Julie's post, I thought I'd have a look at the site anyway with Internet Explorer (have recently downloaded version 7) and could see Dirk's site no problem, including the text, so no need for Firefox after all!

Some gorgeous flowers & photos there Dirk!

I would feel the same , it is a once in a liftime luck that I had , and now it gone hapens again. The picture I show af the Ario's is from plants of the same man (4 big Ario's and the Uebelmannia on the post on top for 43?) ,so I have confidence that by the end of the month I will post 16 HUGE Arios.

Hi Dirk

Don't forget to keep us posted on your new plants, not sure that I would have space for that many Uebelmannia but you can't turn down a bargain like that, wello done on the Ario's they look beautiful !!.

Don't suppose he has a loph crest he wants to sell aswell, Oh well worth asking, I'm sure I'll track one down eventually :~).

Your Disco's are a very nice looking,how old are they ?

Hi Dirk,
You have some very nice plants and pictures - I hope you enjoy this forum. I noticed a picture of Opuntia zebrina fm reticulata in your photos - this was a plant I looked for for many years - and now when I have spares for sale they usually go fast.

Best regards

Chris
