Hello from glamorous Elephant and Castle

Post by williamn » Wed Oct 28, 2020 12:22 pm

Hello! Just joined after browsing numerous threads on this site for a while. Small collection of succulents within a larger collection of other indoor plants, which has kept me sane during lockdown in a small London flat! Latest addition is Dorstenia foetid, which I'm rather excited about - its just settling in. Very keen to try and acquire Dorstenia elata (which I guess may not be a succulent) but not having much luck. Have also grown Jatropha podagrica from seed this year too (Very low success rate on those seeds!).

Looking forward to slowly expanding my collection and to talking to you here! As an aside, does anyone know if there are equivalent discussion boards for exotic/tropical plants, such as Begonias etc?

You can order it from www.araflora.com, in het Netherlands (well, out of stock at the moment).
