Hello! My name is Livi, I am in my teens and I’m a new BCSS member. I’ve been collecting cacti and succulents for about 6 years now, and I currently have a collection of 133! Even though I have a lot of cacti and succulents, I am still young and would love some tips and support on how to become better. Thankyou so much for allowing me to become a part of such a wonderful group, and also thanks to Toni who sent some amazing seeds- I’ve planted them already. Just thought I should introduce myself. Kind regards, Livi

Welcome to the Forum Livi, you will find plenty of help and advice here. I would suggest that you also go along to your branch meetings, where you can hear expert speakers, chat to other members and probably acquire even more plants! I also started growing cacti when I was in my teens, over 50 years ago! It's a great hobby. Enjoy your plants.
