Re: one for Ian

and when I popped back in later it just got better as the Pleiospilos, Tanquana & some L.pseudo truncatella were flowering & there was a really nice smell in the greenhouse, such a welcome homecoming.

anyone tried this RSM treatent

Hi all Just been browsing some cacti -etc emails and saw this treatment , has anyone used Isopropyl alcohol ?. On mature cacti you can spray 70% isopropyl alcohol on the plant to kill the mites but not their eggs. Water works as well, but the alcohol works faster on large populations. Continue the s...
