Re: Does anyone know what this is?

First it was orchids, then, since c.2001, cacti and succulents. I'm into South African plants, mainly conos, lithops and haworthias, with a few cacti, especially 'posh' mamms, turbs and other smalls. Now it’s stapeliads as well... Pssst, has anyone mentioned Carnivorous plants to you? 😈 Yes, been t...

Re: 1 year old Conophytums Solved

Re: Supplementary lighting

Get the best value lights you can, Chris, highest output and cheapest to run,and you’ll get some extra light benefit. At least you won’t have to line your garden with Bacofoil!...not a good look!😂😂😂

Re: December Cactus world is here

“ Members outside UK can pay via paypal, I believe. But only for abroad members? But to be honest, the ordering system for me is not the most member friendly one. I have been a member for a few years but have yet to order seeds from the BCSS. The main reason for me not to order is I need to provide ...
