Wonderful selection Mike. I could be wrong but one or two look as though they might be in somewhat arid surroundings for Sheffield? I did specify in or formerly in your collection. However I’ll rule them in if they’re in your garden or conservatory and I’m mistaken. In which case apologies in advance!

Aplogies, Peter

I hadn't gone back and checked your original specification. Some were habitat, and one was in cultivation but not my plant, all now deleted. :oops:

Hi Mike
Thanks, in a way I’m sorry to see them go as they were lovely plants!

That is amazing. I'm new to cacti species and have never seen anything like that before.

I think aselliformis means looks like woodlouse.
