Re: Sinningia leucotricha

Well, I didn't water it in this long dry spell we have had here - despite it being in a pot - and it seems fine, when even trees in the garden are losing leaves. It's fairly close to the house on the East side, which perhaps gives it a bit of extra protection from the winter.

Re: Old seeds

Some years ago, I was given some Echinopsis x Lobivia seed over 20 years old (originally from Gordon Rowley) - and it germinated like cress. The chap who gave it me kept his house fairly cold in winter, mind.
