The editor's desk:

Friends, colleagues, enthusiasts of cacti and other succulents! We invite you to send us photographs of your plants (with or without names), especially of colored and flowering cultivars. Your stories about cultivars from your collection are enthusiastically welcome! The most interesting information and photos will be published in the next issues of our magazine. There are many puzzles in this amazing world of cultivars which are yet to be solved and your photos and stories may be a valuable contribution to the studies of these astonishing plants.

Thanks to Natasha Andreeva from Kiev (Ukraine) we started our own subscription service beginning with this issue. Lack of such a service has made me very uncomfortable to tell the truth. Now to subscribe (or unsubscribe) to our magazine just click Subscription button in the left column.

We heartily thank all the readers who sent us stories and photos of interesting plants from their collections. You are always welcome!
