Loving these journals keep up the good work.
And as the walls come down and as I look in your eyes
My fear begins to fade recalling all of the times
I have died and will die.
It's all right.
I dont mind
I dont mind.
I DONT MIND

Hi All,

Some of you may have received our two 2016 calendars per email. Although not an official Xerophilia product (and therefore not available on our website), the 2016 calendars can be viewed / downloaded from:

https://www.scribd.com/doc/294481965/Xe ... dar-2016-1" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

https://www.scribd.com/doc/294482438/Xe ... dar-2016-2" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;


The calendars were not intended to be functional but represent a big THANK YOU! to all who contributed with pictures, articles, support, ideas, translations and more to our effort of sharing free knowledge!

Cheers,
Eduart

P.S. Xerophilia 15 will be online shortly.

Hi,

We need at Xerophilia few pictures of Mammillaria mainiae in habitat (illustration for an article planned for our June issue) - we will greatly appreciate your help! Plants in habitat, maybe a flowering plant, generic aspect of habitat, etc. We don't need huge amounts of pictures - four or five are just enough.

Of course, authors will be credited accordingly.

Please email at eduart.zimer@xerophilia.ro or xerophilia@xerophilia.ro

Many thanks,
Eduart
