What happened to May's?
Can anyone start these threads or is it for mods only?

Ah i never thought to look on the main site. I thought the choice of genus was random

I finally got round to photographing my only Dudleya, D brittonii.

I do think it is a very beautiful plant but difficult to keep spotlessly white. I don't water it much at the moment but I believe it to be a winter grower, so will give it some in Autumn and Spring.

It's July now, should we not have a different Genus of the Month? On the BCSS website the Plant of the Month is a Selenicereus, so I guess we should have something like that here. I know there are some growers of Epiphyllum and similar out there.
