Are you there, Suculentia? You won last month's competition so it's your turn to set this month's subject. :wink:

Hi friends, sorry for delay, I didn't see that I won the last competition. I think there are not too much collectors interested in Crassulaceae family in the BCSS, but maybe I am wrong, it will be the new competition in November 2017. I start showing some of my plants.
