Hello from Mid Wales

Post by chrisred » Fri Dec 11, 2020 3:50 pm

Hi all,
I have been growing a small number of cacti / succulents for a number of years but had really concentrated on my Carnivorous plants to date. I still have a number of these but more recently I have gained more interest in the cacti and succulents, I now have a small collection of agaves and particularly like the Euphorbias of which I have purchased a few.
I have a unheated poly tunnel where I keep most of the hardy plants , others mainly Euphorbias are residing indoors for the winter.
I will be looking into growing cacti from seed and this is where I think I may need advice and information.

Today I paid for a BCSS membership so looking forward to receiving more information reading etc.

Will be looking for suggestions on what cacti are recommended to grow from seed for a beginner.

I look forward to catching up with you on the forum and FB page :grin: :!:
