Thank you everyone.

I did see someone posted on Reddit that they joined the BCSS after another user recommended it on there so it does work. A few really high quality pictures could really increase the numbers especially if they are crossposted in the already popular groups on Reddit. The BCSS group is up to 81 now. The Succulents group there has 380,000 so there’s a way to go.

Tina, the plant is an Astrophytum coahuilense cv. Kikko and I really don’t want to kill it. It was my first ‘big’ (£16) purchase when I started collecting and my first foreign purchase too.
