You did well to get the Yavia seed - I sent my order at 2:10pm on the day that the list was issued but it was sold out :(

I was refreshing the page nearly every hour on the date the list would be updated, when i saw the list was updated i checked the list and send the order information immediately. Some seeds go too fast.. :/

You have been more successful than me with ADBLPS. Unable to even get on his website to see the latest seed list (band with restriction). Too much demand? :roll:

Correction .... it’s there now, and my Sunday morning accounted for.

Well I had not heard of two of the Mammillaria from your list, fatich, and I have just sent off for these: thomsonii and weingartiana - let's see whether he still has some in stock. I also ordered Mammillaria paulii and several forms of Pterocactus australis.

Earlier this year I received some interesting Parodia seed from Mats Winberg (Succseed): Parodia juckeri, and three forms of Parodia subterranea. I also bought some seed from Volker Schädlich's new list (mainly forms of Gymnocalycium mendozaense, friedrichii and mihanovichii, as well as some Fraileas).

I ve never heard about these 2 Mammillaria too before, both are beautiful plants. I also ordered some Eriosyce,Mammillaria and Escobaria seeds from Succseed. Eriosyce germinated like a weed and Mammillaria, Escoabaria follow them. Hope you get good germination too.

I thought it came out today so haven't looked yet. Last year I waited for Cactus world to arrive rather than checking the website.

Thanks, fatich, and it is good to know you had good germination. I won't be sowing cactus seed for quite a while, it's far too cold and gloomy on these shores...

Nice selection of varieties mcdieimp. Is the Dioscorea an Ebay find? Very curious too about the BCSS list...
