Introduce myself

Postby ize89 » Fri Feb 17, 2017 3:12 pm

Hello fellow members,

My name is Isaac and I am from Cambridge, UK. I am an enthusiast for growing Conophytum & Lithops plants, mostly Conophytums as I live in England. My journey began in Tesco and Homebase, where I brought my first set of succulent plants. I became interested about these plants and because they had no name, I decided to try to search them. On my search, the discovery of a world full of Cono & Lith's caught my attention. So the theory began, I searched a lot of information about the plants (origin, species, growing) etc. I then went to try to buy more of these humble plants and now my starting list from seed is as follows;

Lithops -
Aucampiae 'Bella-ketty'
Otzeniana 'Cesky Granat'
Schwantesii 'nutwerk'
Gracilidelineata waldroniae C189
Bromfieldii acf Embers
Salicola acf Bacchus

Conophytum -
Achabense SB1600
Armianum SH462
Bugerii
Cubicum
Ernstii EVJ8512 Sandberg
Pageae Spektakel
Pageae SB1985 Ottospoort
Pageae SB2171
Pageae SB1195
Minimum wittebergense RR714
Pubicalyx SB2024 Banke
Pubicalyx Kilprand pin head
Stephanii abductum Sb1119
Stephanii Helmutii Eernietberge


I made myself a list from photo selecting of which I find most attractive, so I have a lot more yet to buy. I also took a page from the far east's book; if they are demanding them so much, then I also want to grow them as they must be very good haha

I joined the BCSS in hope to learn and converse with other members to enlighten myself and further my knowledge with these plants, and nothing better than to meet new people with similar interests :)

Welcome to the forum, Isaac. There are several Lithops & Cono experts here and I'm sure you will be able to get plenty of tips (and possibly plants) from forum members.

Are you a member of the MSG? Usually lots of Lithops and Conophytum articles in it, and as always an interesting seed list you might drool over.
