Hello to all

Postby Dejay » Sun Aug 06, 2017 8:35 am

Hello everyone,

I have been interested in haworthia and cactus for a year or so and have a small collection of variegated varieties of haworthia which includes a cuspidata reverse variegated which I adore and guard continually.
I have looked after them as well as I can with my limited knowledge and experience but all are healthy and a number have pupped so hopefully Im doing at least something right.
I am really interested in growing an Aloe Polyphylla but regretfully I have had no success in germination although I have followed instructions to the letter.
I live in the U.K. in Essex so hopefully with some thought and planning I should be able to grow these in our climate?
I have decided to halt purchases of these seeds online going forward as I'm not even sure of what I am getting in the first place to be honest, subsequently I searched and found the bcss and joined in order to further my very limited knowledge and to reach out to members on here.
I wondered if any of the members know of any growers who would be willing to let me purchase some seeds as I would love to be able to grow these stunning plants.
Thank you in advance for any ideas or suggestions you may have and I look forward to being an active member.

Dejay.

Welcome to the Forum Dejay, I'm sure you will find plenty to interest you here and there are several other Haworthia enthusiasts. There is a Forum seed pool, so you might find something of interest there. Enjoy your plants.

Hello Juster,

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my initial post, much appreciated.
I'll certainly visit the seed pool as you said.
Many thanks.
