Planthunter Stefan Burger

Although the article's a year old I can't see it's been posted here before. The article is interesting enough but some great pics of Copiapoa etc.

I was never a huge Haworthia fan, but I have taken to them a little recently.

Here are the survivors of my sowing April 2019 of Haworthia springbokvlakensis (Haworthia Soc seed).

No doubt I am doing it all wrong for best cultivation, but they seem healthy at least.

In that case, I will let a moderator remove my post and your comments to it.
Done. That'll have everyone wondering! :lol:

My guess is Peyote the Divine Cactus, Edward F Anderson. Do I win the prize?
