Hi from Australia

Postby 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.

Cheers
gorge
George
