I'll have quite a few arabicums, almost 100% germination with those... ! Only a few somalense though at present. These are almost a year old. They are all a bit sleepy at the moment, when they wake up a bit more they will be ready for new homes.

Please feel free to send me a message, interested to see what you have for trade :smile:

I've been growing Adeniums from seed for years - obesums, arabicums and somalense mainly. I'll have some available fairly soon, germination has been very good so I'll have extras. Might also have a few other caudiciform types, including Petopentia natalensis and Dioscorea elephantipes as they germinated better than expected too !
I'd love to discuss a trade of a few of A. arabicum and A. somalense when you know exactly how many spares you have.

I'd like to thank everybody who contributed to this post of mine. I took the opportunity, now lockdown restrictions are easier, to visit Craig at Williams Cactus near Barnsley, with a friend of mine, on Tuesday.
I'm very glad I did so (and that I waited - thanks for that advice too!) as he had a really interesting selection, with quite a few caudiciforms, and some really nice plants. He (and his father) were very knowledgeable and helpful and we spent a good couple of hours there. Prices seem very reasonable, and I would recommend them.
Worrying though to hear that the combination of Brexit and Covid-19 may have sigfnificant implications for cacti and succulent availability.
Thanks again to all
Alan

So what did you buy then ????.

I wondered about the fockea comaru they had as these aren't that common & its a smaller growing fockea so won't take up too much space.

Bought quite a lot! Was worried things might get harder to find, and it was a long drive from the East Coast! :lol:

You did do well & all so healthy looking, the e.bupleurifolia isn't what the label say its a hybrid might be japonica.
e.bupleurifolia is normally a single chunky stem.

I like the monilaria that looks cute (tu)
