Hi everyone,

I'm new to the forum and I just wanted to introduce myself and share a collage I made showing recent blooms and other recent additions.

I've been growing cacti and succulents for about 4 years now and my collection grows more each year! I'm quickly running out of room and will soon have to get a small greenhouse or something, LOL.

I live in Missouri so they all come in over winter, but I keep them very cool so they they can go dormant and have a good flowering the following spring.

I'm glad to have found this forum and look forward to being a member! :)

Wow Zach! Nice and ample collection. Lovey dubby

Do you find them all locally or have you purchased online?

Hope to see you and your plants on this forum regularly.

And I agree Welcome!

Great Collection! And so very well organized, but a plant hoarder like me would observe that closest packing of pots has not yet been reached, there would appear to be plenty of room for more plants! ;)

Maybe Zach is anticipating the day when one of those plants outgrows its pot and he will need more space. If so, Zach, you are a better man than I. I can't remember that the holes in my greenhouse are being saved for plants that are summering outside. D'Oh!
