Cactus and Succulent Review

Post by Sheila » Tue Jun 01, 2021 3:29 pm

Hi,

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

This issue features the genus Cochemiea which, according to the latest DNA findings has been reinstated and now includes a number of species previously considered to be mammillarias.

Ralph Martin, who is well known to users of the forum, writes on Aylostera and other items include an introduction to 'Some smaller opuntias', 'Uebelmannias in habitat' and the beautiful 'Agave zebra'

There's plenty more besides of course, and I hope you will enjoy this issue.

Best wishes
Sheila

Thoroughly absorbing Sheila, thanks for all of your work. And no, I won’t be changing any labels! It’s a good thing that the plants grow on regardless, without having an identity crisis :wink:
