Hello from Macclesfield

Postby showaddydadito » Fri Feb 20, 2015 10:23 pm

Hello

I'm Dave, in Macclesfield (Cheshire, UK).

My daughter gave me some Lithops seeds for christmas, so this looked like a good place to sign up and look for ideas, advice etc.

I've been growing cactus of various sorts on the windowsill for about 50 years. I have 2 south facing windowsills about 15ft long, which are too sunny for many plants, and over the years I've added and added until I have to give away the ones I can't fit. Not exclusively cactus by any means, I'll grow whatever takes my fancy, and currently have a small greenhouse in my bedroom as a tropical setup for bromeliads.

I only do it for fun, and have no urge to show or compete - I think my competitiveness gland failed in early childhood.

Dave

Welcome to the forum Dave, your daughter obviously has good taste or doesn't like spines :lol:
Good luck with your seed sowing.

Welcome Dave. Be careful because Lithops are quite addictive.

Thanks for the warning - I was only going to grow them, not smoke them . . . . . :P
