I was really looking forward to this talk, and I missed it! Was it recorded by any chance?
No, I'm very much a Zoom novice, and while I know its possible, haven't used it yet, and with a large audience, not the time to try for the first time.

You would have to edit the interesting phone calls 🤣
Very good talk though 👍

Doreen’s shopping chat was amazing

All my plants are kept indoors and I started collecting in August 2018. Favourites are Pachyphytum, Echeveria, Haworthia, Mesembs and oddball Cacti.

If I am correct there will be another Mammillaria Society talk on Thursday. I see the details are available in the members area (I am not a member). Will the details also be made public, just like the one in March?

Nope. Strange. It was mentioned in the BCSS news letter, so one might expect it to be available to non-members too. Otherwise, what is the use of mentioning it...

Same with Facebook, I guess they don't like crowds.

That's okay. They can keep things for members if they want to.

But then I don't understand why there has been a mention of this talk in the BCSS news letter, which is a different society! If you mention it to non-members, I would expect it to be open to anyone. Otherwise let the Mammillaria Society communicate their things to their own members via their own channels. This annoys me.
