Hi Everyone,
I hope you are all well and enjoying your broms. Sorry I haven't been popping in, things are pretty busy at home at the moment and my time has been a bit limited and being the Admin of the brom group on Facebook, I have to get to it first. I did get your message Nev about starting a new thread in here for you all as yes the other one is getting a bit long. I did this one for May and June since we are already half way through May :)
We haven't added many broms to our collections since the poisoning, still dealing with more rotting out from it and working out which ones are rubbish bin material and which ones have reached a point of no longer dying and instead have started to give us a pup to save themselves. I don't throw any out until we are completely satisfied that there is NO coming back.... ie the fall to complete bits and then the trucnk ends up exploding into a rotten disgusting mess! Then we know.... they are well and truly cactus... dead..... beyond it. Then the pot, mix... everything from that brom... goes straight into the bin. Probably should keep the pot, but with what we have been through, a 50 cent pot is not worth the risk of infecting something else.

Well we came from the April thread here ....

We did buy a few nice new neos from a local person who is selling up most of her collection, so I'll include a photo from that recent purchase.
This one is Neoregelia Purple Star.

Hope you are all well :)
