Hello from Warwickshire

Post by CactiGuy77 » Sun Apr 17, 2016 11:34 am

Good morning all, I'm Phil I live in a nice sunny spot in south Warwickshire and have been collecting Cacti for a year or so. I currently have about 40 plants in my possession and have been growing from seed and doing a little bit of grafting on the side.

Here are a few of my plants just coming out of dormancy and looking forward to some fresh green (or blue) growth.

Hi CactiGuy77 and welcome to the forum :welc:

We've recently upgraded the forum and so there's currently some teething issues still to be ironed out, one of which has affected your photo's not showing up properly (although if I copy the links into the URL bar they work fine) I have messaged Bill the forum guru to see if he can fix them for you :grin:

Your plants look very healthy and I look forward to seeing more of your photos.

Thank you for the offer, I recently managed to buy a lophophora at The Cactus Shop. It's beautiful, hopefully will look like your one eventually. Very kind offer though.
