Re: Seed Suppler Needed

P.S. Aiko, we had few bad things happening here (Croatia) and around during 1990-1995, but thats another story. Wasn't aware from where you came from. Was thinking it would be all the way back to WWI or II or something... A question about Mesa Garden: when is the best time to order your seeds? Can ...

Re: Seed Suppler Needed

I remember that my main seed supplier long ago was Hovens from Netherlands. During wars I lost contact with them (and lost interest in professsional cacti growing), now I can't find them anywhere on web. They changed name or are out of bizz now? I remember they had huge variety of seeds and reasona...

Re: Seed Suppler Needed

I've just found this supplier in the Netherlands, who seem to have quite an extensive list of C&S INCLUDING EUPHORBIAS, TINA!! Not that much in mesembs, but plenty of other things to keep you occupied for an hour or two! I've bookmarked for future reference, and might try them next year - ordering ...

Re: seeding------Muiria hortensae

Look fuzzy and cute.
The two in the middle in the top, they are still to peel of their first layer?

From where did you obtain the Muiria seeds? Was thinking of giving them a go myself.

Re: Agave in Bloom?

Could it be a Beschorneria? I don't think it is an Agave too. Don't know what, but I am convinced not an Agave. It is promising a very big flower, that's for sure...! My best bet is some Echeveria, but I will probably be wrong. I do have an Echeveria of about the same size that is starting to flowe...

Re: Seed Suppler Needed

I have had good results from J Piltz, Succseed, and Ludwig Bercht Oh, indeed, Ludwig Bercht (Netherlands) is a seed supplier worthy of mentioning. Visit his website on: http://www.bercht-cactus.nl. Have ordered many times already, and have quite good results. His new list will probably not out unti...

Re: Temperatures are due to take a dip, tonight

I think most of your warmth-loving plants can take a few nights with low temperatures, especially in a greenhouse with closed windows. Three degrees Celsius is probably outdoors and on ground level, not indoors and on the height of your tablets, I take it? I won't be bringing in my warmth-loving pla...

There should be a button labeled 'Edit' in the top of each of your posts (there is one with 'Quote' on it too).
