Hi! I’m an undergrad student with a deep love for plants but a relatively new determination to grow some CPs! I’ve been researching and interested in collecting a lot of Euphorbias and Pachypodiums, mostly plants native to the southern hemisphere with incredible architecture. I recently got offered a free pack of D. Capensis which is now en route to me, and I’m excited to get into the idea of growing these marvelous organisms. I grew up hearing stories from my parents about how CPs always die and I was always banned from having VFTs as a child, so I’m now ecstatic to start growing and then hopefully be able to propagate and share seeds with all my friends in college come fall semester. Thanks for the warm welcome, and I can’t wait to spend all my waking hours just absorbing info haha!

I used to lurk on this forum on the past but the seed bank was the reason I decided to actually become active! An online friend pointed me in the right direction, and I can’t wait to start growing and then in the future start to give back!

Welcome to the forums, both of you!

Kim, make sure to take a look at the seedbank inventory to kick that running start up a gear! You'll be swarmed by plants like the rest of us in no time :lol:
