Hello from sunny north Worcestershire!

Post by succulentaddict » Sun Sep 27, 2020 10:37 pm

Hello
I joined a few weeks ago, and have just got onto the forum.
I have too many succulents - Echeveria, Graptopetalum, Graptoveria, Pachyphytum . . .
I am not mad about spikey things but I do have some Agaves and a few cacti.
I have grown succulents for many years, but have recently been adding to my collection again, and now they are taking over the house!!!

Welcome to the Forum, you can never have too many succulents! If this was a normal year I'd recommend the Cactus Show at Birmingham Botanical Gardens which would have been in a week or so. Hopefully it will be back to normal for early October next year.

Hello everyone,
Just a quick ‘hi’ from me, I joined the forum some time ago but never got around to introducing myself. Can’t seem to post any new messages hence this message - apologies if this is against the rules. I’ mostly interested in caudex plants and over the last 4 years have been growing Adeniums from seeds. About 100 of them, but I now about 30 left due to slugs and rot - not happy! Anyhow, hope to learn a lot and exchange information.
Regards
Radek

Hi,
Yes, your first 5 posts have to be moderated before they're visible but it should be OK after that - did you realise that was post number 2? :lol:
