Hello From United Kingdom :D

Postby IslandCarl » October 10th, 2015, 4:17 am

Hi,

My name is Carl and I'm from the Isle of Wight in the United Kingdom, (Google Maps Link for the Geographically challenged like myself happy:)

I have 3 plants which I purchased just the other day from a discount store for just £1 each (which were very kindly ID'ed as Optimara hybrids probably 'Optimara Chico', 'Optimara Mississippi' and another one which might be 'Optimara Colorado II') and since then I've ordered another 20 leaves of varieties which I couldn't resist buying :) unfortunately I get addicted to plants easily and already have a sizeable collection of Epiphytic Cacti, some 400 plants and cuttings of Epicactus as well as numerous Disocactus and Epiphyllum sp. and also Rhipsalis and Schlumbergera hybrids and sp.!

I look forward to chatting to you all on the forum :)

My 3 babies happy03:

Hi Carl,

welcome to our forum! Yes, it looks like you got the African violet virus now :lol: Great to see you first purchases and looking forward seeing more of your other varieties to come.
Perhaps you already know this website where you can check the Optimara varieties: http://www.myviolet.com/varieties

Happy growing,
Gabi

Thanks Birgitt,

Yes I have ordered a number of times from Kakteen-Haage in the past when I first started I bought a lot of Rudolf Heßing's epicactus hybrids from them.
