Re: Where did everyone go.

Regarding my remark on exotics, few of us bother to grow our own native species, we always find those from other parts of the world more interesting through being unfamiliar. In the 1960's long before CITES, John Donald the British Rebutia expert, now long dead, told me he had in the past swapped s...

Re: Where did everyone go.

I don't think what you said is accurate, Many people like grow from seed or bring on plants through their small stages.like to spend energy on the plants themselves. Of course.some people just like buy and buy. l think that because of them too young, generally less than 40,and they did not get compr...
