Hello!

Post by Mark07 » Wed Sep 12, 2018 5:31 pm

Hello from Wirral UK and thanks for accepting me onto the forum. :grin:

My name is Mark and I’ve always been interested in Cacti since early childhood and since my mum bought me my first cactus at 10 years old! I had a modest collection for years but left the hobby until recently.

I’ve set up my first greenhouse and im slowly building up another collection. Favourites being mostly Opintias and Echinocereus so far :)

A few pics from my collection:
