New member from Bedfordshire

Post by Hamant » Sun Feb 24, 2019 8:49 pm

Hi,

My name is Hamant (Ham for short - yes I’ve probably heard any jokes you could come up with :lol:)
I’m new to the world of succulents, and am enjoying learning about them. I currently only have an ailing Agave Neomexicana which I am trying to rescue, but plan to get more for the garden this year. Here’s a pic of my Agave when it was at full health.

Regards,

Ham

Welcome to the forum.
Indeed it looks a fine plant .... and no doubt will be joined with many others.
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?

Hello Ham. I'm sure you will be tempted with more plants soon.

Thanks for the welcome guys.
I will indeed be looking for my next agave very soon. I’m hoping to find a decent Agave victoriae-reginae. I love the look of those.

We started growing some from seed last year, they're still very tiny.
