I would like to meet new friends in other part of the world and would be glad to trade plants or seed from this part of the world.

:shock: Excellent Gerfi, I have got your mail with your great photos.
They all seem to do well under artificial light of winter.

I also noticed that your Dyckia lindevaldae are really cute, it's producing pups too :roll:

Hello Chanin,

great! This is very good news. Actually while I would say that Gerhard's plant as well as mine are slightly different in the sense of a bit less white scales, I attribute this difference to the different growing conditions with dull light most of the year. California certainly make a difference as does Bangkok! So I do think that our plants are most probably of the same clone as yours, considering the BRT origin and that their plants are said to be the original Baker F1 clone as well. I am very curious to see how long it will take for your plant to double in size, flower and offset. :ethink Two months? :lol:

Cheers,
Joachim

Ab-so-lute-ly breathaking, Chanin! I hope yours will make more pups than mine and do so quickly; I'm almost sure it will under your perfect Bangkok conditions.

Cheers,
Joachim
