Re: E.obesa

Pretty sure it is E. obesa rather than E symmetrica due to the sharper ribs. E. symmetrica tends to be more globular in shape. My obesas are budding too.

I understand the need for a phyto but can't understand why plants will still be subject to an inspection and therefore a fee charged once they hit the UK as my understanding of the ph...

Interestingly another person listed a large fine looking specimen of A. asterias superkabuto which sold for close to £100. The seller of the fir...
