Hi from Australia

Post by George » Sat Jan 14, 2012 7:03 am

Hi all I knew to this forum,

I used to grow (and kill) a few cacti when I was young. I am geting into growing them again as I need plants that can handle a wide variety of conditions and arn't water hungry, and can handle a bit of neglect. I work long hours and live in a rather dry location.

Looking forward to talking with you all.

With apologies to the late Professor C. D. Darlington the following misquotation springs to
mind ‘cactus taxonomy is the pursuit of the impossible by the incompetent’ - Fearn & Pearcy, Rebutia (1981)
