Cactus and Succulent Review

Post by Sheila » Mon Mar 01, 2021 4:09 pm

Hi,

Just to let you know that the March issue of the Cactus and Succulent Review is now available to download at https://www.cactusandsucculentreview.org.uk/

This issue includes an article on the fascinating ant house plant, Myrmecodia beccarii, together with items on fouquierias, mammillarias and a lost echinocereus, with plenty more as well of course.

I hope that you will enjoy this issue of the Cactus and Succulent Review.

Best wishes
Sheila
