That looks really nice, wouldn't believe it was two weeks, just shows how versatile they are. Kids look lovely too

Thanks Tina, it was a busy couple of days but very rewarding result!

Still haven't sorted the doors fully - think I will need some form of profile or clip so slide them in along with the magnets so got a few bits on order to have a play and then a mate is going to 3D print exactly the right stuff to work in graphite.

Have also filled the bench now.

That looks smart. But I have been informed that I will not be allowed to take over the conservatory.
Attempting to grow Aeoniums, Aylostera, Echinocereus, Echinopsis, Gymnocalycium, Lithops, Matucana, Rebutia, and Sulcorebutia.
Currently being wooed by Haworthia, and attempting hybridisation.

Definition of "conservatory" from the OED:
Originally: a greenhouse, either free-standing or attached to a house, for cultivating or keeping delicate flowers or plants; (in modern use) a living room with a glass roof and glass wall panels, often one constructed on the back or side of a house, used as a sun lounge or for growing indoor plants. (Now the most common use.)

Yeah but once she decides there are more plants than space for furniture I'm in trouble!!! To be fair she is very tolerant of my hobbies and she quite likes some of the succulents I grow so I can get away with a few more of those!

The nice 'finished' look of this to hide away all the rubbish has bought me a lot more growing space than I would have otherwise been allowed in here!

What a fantastic collection, they look great.

Very much on a steep learning curve, just love the huge variety and how different succulents can be from one another.
