GotM - hibernation?

Post by SpikyMike » Sat Mar 02, 2019 5:55 pm

Wondering if there’s any interest in re-starting Genus of the Month? Nothing posted for ages. As a newbie I’d love to learn more through this thread.

Good idea
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?

Agreed, I used to enjoy the discussions and found it helpful.

I became a bit disillusioned with it after months of starting threads that garnered no response, despite it being one of my favourite sections, too. The sometimes erratic updating of the home page doesn't help... Hopefully, if/when this post is filled that will improve.

Anyway, for now, I've set up a thread for the current genus, Euphorbia, even though it's actually February's GotM.
