And thank you Bill for helping me to sort out my connection to the forum.
I have been interested in plants since I was a child.
My first succulents were a Crassula ovata and a pack of mixed succulent seeds which, to my parents' dismay, grew to a nice size (they must have thought they would never germinate/would all die). Coming home from school (or was it a holiday?) to find out they had been disposed of without warning because they 'took too much space' was a big trauma, but my love for plants never died. In fact, it got worse, but I just stuck to outdoor plants for a while.
I am particularly fond of small plants, from alpines to lithops and other small succulents. I only have a tiny collection at the moment, but since I like propagation, I suspect it will grow. I study horticulture alongside my day job, because I enjoy it, and because who knows?

Growing a mixed collection of cacti & other succulents; mainly smaller species with a current emphasis on lithops & conophytum.
I look forward to attending a show.
I grow a few miniature Saintpaulia as well, although not succulents as far as this group is concerned, they store water efficiently in their stems and leaves.
