We then head to the other greenhouse. When entering, you see on the left the Gymnocalycium collection, on the right the Sulcorebutia collection. Quite huge !

The Sulcos collection currently includes more than 2000 clones. They are classified according to the book of Willi Gertel and Wolfgang Latin "SULCOREBUTIEN - KLEINODE AUS BOLIVIEN." They are all potted in pure pumice. I therefore asked Ingo if he had to often bring fertilizer as that substrate is very poor. He replied that three annual fertilizing is enough : the plants grow and keep a natural look.

After having talked about this and that, Ingo returns to his work and I have plenty of time to shoot. Here is an overview of this magnificent collection. I have just photographed everything that I liked and possibly some less common collect numbers.

Eden Plants / Ingo Breuer 2012 (1)

August 11, 2012

A meeting with Ingo Breuer who I had missed in 2009 and also Benjamin, a young sulco-enthusiast in charge of the website was expected.

Therefore I had to leave early and so ...

Seven AM : departure to Heinsberg (Germany). My GPS tells me that I should be there in 2:17 after a 213 km trip. These instruments are quite effective : at 9.30 I'm in the place ! ! !

I am greeted by Ingo Breuer in person. He explains that there have been many changes in the greenhouses. The collections of sulcorebutias and gymnocalyciums have been moved in another greenhouse. The one in which we stand for the moment still contains the collections of haworthias and some other succulents. More room is available for the sale area and the propagation area.

Here are some photos of plants from the private collection of Haworthia.
