Another hello from Devon

Post by DevonDave » Mon Dec 10, 2018 9:21 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm from Devon and the partner of Conolady who introduced herself a couple of months back. I've finally gotten 'round to doing an intro for myself. I've been growing succulents for almost 20 years and almost from the start I was drawn towards Pachypodiums and Adeniums in particular but also other succulents from Africa and Madagascar. I enjoy raising plants from seed especially and also producing my own seed. Here a few pics of my collection and some favourite plants.

Cheers, DevonDave

Welcome to the forum - some fine plants there
Continuing a journey of discovery as I grow cactus seeds and offsets, and discover all kinds of wonderful plants in Cactus Nurseries. Just love Echinopsis, Lithops, Aeoniums and Gymnocalycium .... and....and .... now discovering Rebutia (thought I'd never bother having lost one a winter ago) and Sulcorebutia and Aylostera .... from where did those Echinocereus plants arrive?

Hi all,

Many thanks for your welcome messages. I've just posted a new topic on the cactus and succulent forum page so hopefully you'll see that too.

Cheers, Dave

Some lovely Adeniums there Dave. I have a few but nowhere near as many as you. I also have a few Pachypodiums, could be an addiction in the making. Conolady has advised me on who you are. Good to see you both on the forum. J
