OK, I'm convinced :) Will give them a try, thank you.

I’ve got nothing to compare them to but they seem good to me. I would check on their website if they have stock before you go though, they didn’t have many for sale sometimes when I went

All my plants are kept indoors and I started collecting in August 2018. Favourites are Pachyphytum, Echeveria, Haworthia, Mesembs and oddball Cacti.

They have them in 'my' store (i.e. 200 kms away). And I have something to compare, the best lamp I have is 300W Vipar Spectra, it covers 80x80 cms area from 80 cms distance. So I have quite a few reasons to try 'yours', despite their price (which is rather high in Croatia).

BTW, you have too many plants not to apply for BCSS membership :)

Well I hope they deliver to you?

Does it say that I’m not a member somewhere? I should be because this year I paid extra when I renewed to become a full member with a Bradleya rather than an associate member. I thought it was a way to give more to the society because the seeds they sell are such a bargain.

That’s strange but thanks for letting me know. I had put my number in before when I first signed up however the drop down menu doesn’t show the BCSS Member option like it does if I click on your name. I’ve paid for it and received seeds this year so I wonder if it’s just the website playing up? I’ll contact someone to ask if it can be fixed

I had a similar problem when I joined up,
the forum did not recognise me as a paid-up member even after I entered my number.

Bill is the man you want, forum administrator, he is the red Bill posting in "Forum Status Updates" and elsewhere.
He told me he had to do it manually, I think because the forum is not set up for auto (or maybe it was just the way I had confused the system ! :) )

Anyhows a PM to him will get you sorted (tu)

EDIT added later, a bit more info :-

In red is the bit AnTTun and Diane noticed, in green is how we appear
however in Blue you are in fact identified as a member !

I think I found out how to change it. It was a bit hidden on my phone when it’s portrait
