Hello from Southern California

Post by nes »

Hi , I'm nes, a Hydrogeology student from SoCal.

I began my plant journey with aquarium plants as a child, and in the past year have grown really interested in cacti and succulents.
As of right now I enjoy keeping haworthia, mesembs, and smaller varieties of cacti. Mainly interested in smaller varieties of succulents to suit my current apartment lifestyle.

Here's a picture of my current favorite plant I own(recently acquired), Avonia Quinaria ssp. Alstonii

Hyello!

I am really enjoying these two I just got from C and D's, Titanopsis Primosii, and Conophytum Chauviniae

Hi and welcome!
Growing mostly under LED lights, in northern latitudes. Especially interested in stem succulents and caudiciforms. Dreaming of my first greenhouse.
