A very big thanks to Mark Anderson for donating some of his spare Gemmae as well ! Very much appreciated! It's under the propagator lid with some LED lights on to get them stated .
I'll keep you posted every month! There in a mix of peat moss , pearlite, quartz gravel and granite dust!
They will be top dressed with granite dust/ chipping's when they get going!

This one will be a stunner pal! You're more than welcome, you have sent a lot my way as well, my collection has grown from a few species to a collection that takes up a couple of windowsills now! A massive thank you to you too! Look forward to seeing this in the person next year!
Cheers

Mark

Have the palacaea flowers opened yet, if so can you confirm that they smell of coconut?

Cheers

Well another month on and things are growing. I will start to top dress now with granite dust to limit the moss build up!

The D. scorpoidies Albany at the back are looking really good, can't wait till they full grown and starting to flower!

Things are looking great! The granite dust will be a great addition! Look forward to seeing you at the next Scottish branch meeting on the 5/3 at RBG Edinburgh
