So Nannorrhops ritchiana is not that hardy in the UK or is it they need warmer summers to grow well?
Bit of both actually. It doesn't like wet winters.....and we don't have hot enough summers for it to do well.

I shouldn't get too excited but one Nannorrhops has just germinated in two months,(bag method) shoot only, which is quicker than I expected, still have another 4 to go.
