Super show Franz! As many are not the easiest plants for keeping outside in the garden.
Phenomenal! (couldn't find another word and hope it's English too)

Sadly Luit died on 14th October 2016 - happily we can still enjoy his posts to the Forum

What a super collection, all looking just perfect. Yes Luit "Phenomenal" is an English word too, and is the right word here. :)

Thank you all together for the kind comments on my pictures.
Only And. cylindrica x hirtella gets a cover in winter. A larger piece glass.
I cultivate Androsaces over 40 years. The propagation with seeds is not difficult.
