I had never had seed from Kohres before and had heard of there poor reuslts from others but thought I should give them ago. I order 17 packets and sowed them on 17 - 2 - 08, about 3 weeks ago, in the heated propagator. The results are has follows. crassimammillaris L1069 1/20 mixtecensis 0/10 gasseriana 4/10 tezontle 10/10 brandegei v gabbii 11/20 perezdelarosae 'El Sauz' 2/10 pere v. andersoniana 0/10 manana 1/10 gasseriana 'Pengn Blanco' 3/10 scheinvariana 4/10 vonwyssiana 8/10 berkiana L1245 3/10 solisioides 8/10 hahniana v albiflora 0/10 wuthenuiana L2692 1/10 viescesnsis 0/10 On the whole I am pleased with the results has I only look to grow three plants of each lot. I would order more seed from them in the future. The AfM seed came in last week (107 packets) I did not get all I had ordered but I have eought to play with. The order I placed with Cactus Connoisseur (CZ) in mid December has not arrived, but I do know of a chap who's order took 5 MONTHS to arrive from them so there is still hope.

Hello Mark, I had have last year about the same results with Körhes seed. But I was not so pleased with the results. From some species I had one or two germinated and when they won't grow up, you have nothing left.
