Woot! My order from Rare Exotic Seeds came in. A nice pick-me-up in an otherwise cruddy day (aside from the surprise irises, which are the subject of another post). Gotta love $3 shipping, so nice to find a Canadian company to order from. Just wish their succulent seed selection was better.
Am particularly eager to try the, Elephant's Foot (Dioscorea elephantipes in the picture) thanks to EllieT's posts about them. And the Karoo Rose (Lapidaria margaretae) - super adorable and stone-like. Unfortunately they are going to have to wait until room frees up in my little propagators. Now if only the Buddha Belly and Rebutia rauschii I planted last week would germinate. They are supposed to be easy to get to grow...sigh.
UPDATE: Some Rebutia rauschii germinated last night. Whew.
