Hi Chris,

I am in the same boat as you quite willing to help but not enough SQL knowledge if it goes wrong and looking at the latest version of Phorum, there are no instructions to upgrade from version 3 only an older version of version 5.

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

If you are in North Wales visitors are welcome PM/E-mail first and bring CAKE.

Hi Julie, Your Forbie Disorder may be getting the better of you so I thought maybee an overdose might help. This was taken at a Dutch nursery this spring and is not enhanced in any way. Forbies as far as you can see.

Wow... an infinitude of forbies! Thanks, David.

I bet this is where mine come from. Girlie and the two new symmetricas have hand-written labels, in the same handwriting, despite being bought almost a year apart. I am sure that Old Gal has the same written label, if only I could find it. I always save the labels.

There can't be that much demand for forbies in the world, thet two of these forby factories are needed, surely?


You folks are lucky. ;) I once celebrated my 2222th post in another forum with a special thread.

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.
