Good morning Dear cacti friends,

my english is terrible - sorry!


Everybody call´s me K.W., so it became my name. . . Laughing

I grow cacti and other succulents since I`am ten years old, witch is now 44 years ago. . . Wink
But there was an interruption for a long time, but since a few years I start again.

I live in Germany, I was born here, grow my plants here, some day die here.
But till that day I have a lot of joy with my plants! bounce
My town is Köln. sunny

Here are a few pictures of some of my plants, and if You like - I show a few more, in future. Basketball

Nice! I can see more than 100 pots or species of Mamms at you deck. And the rest of cacti are numerous.

Isn't overwhelming to own and care for so many plants? I always restrict myself of expending the collection because it starts to consume too much of my time. silent

Good morning agrippa,

what can I say?

It's my hobby, my recreation.
I have a company with several colleagues, annoying customers! Laughing
Some dogs and cats and a wine collection with arround 11000 bottles.
I can also provide 5 or 6000 plants, no problem! cheers

It's my hobby, my recreation. Embarassed


Best regards

What a fantastic collection you have gotten yourself in just a few years! Do you water the plants separately or do you use a hose? There are a lot of big plants that don´t need repotting all that often but even so it must be a very timeconsuming recreation!

I use a hose with shower and flow meter, so I know how much water I spray on to the plant´s. Fertilizers and pesticides I spray with a hand pump, befor (fertilizer + some pesticides) or after (pesticides) I watering the plant´s.

Thord, You must have a very nice collection too, may You show a few pictures??? bounce

Hi KW
I love your collection - by the way, my English is also not so good.
I live in Paarl - it is a small town in South Africa. Hot summers and the winters are cold and wet.
I will send pictures of my collection as soon as i can manage the upload of my cacti pictures.
Regards, Mercia
