      Here are some new cacti and succulents I bought ...
      Some of them are replacements for ones that died, and others are quite new to me :smile:

            Two new Chilean cacti I bought recently, to replace the ones that died. Their flowers are really beautiful so when I saw them I had to buy them again :smile:

            Left - Neochilenia crispa
            Right - Neoporteria paucicostata

            I think they are now called Eriosyce, but I prefer the 'old' names - I can remember them better :snork:
