I'm using Firefox too and no problems, have you updated to the latest version? I can't think why it wouldn't work unless you don't have excel or an excel viewer

Hey guys.

I emailed Vlado over a week ago about the availability of some seeds that I'm after, but I've heard nothing back.

Is he still running, or have I missed the boat?

Hey all.

I've just been emailing with Vlado and he's still open for trade, but it seems that he has an overseas interest for his business. This will be a huge loss for Australians, especially as this will mean that some species that he supplies that can no longer be legally imported with disappear with the rest of the stock OS.

I have put in an order for the taxa that are of interest to me, but I thought that it might be worth coordinating, amongst a group of cactophiles, a binge of ordering from Vlado so that a decent swathe of the genetic provenance of his business is not lost to Aussies forever. Either that, or someone with deep pockets offers to take over and keep it in Australia!

Sadly, he was out of stock of Disocactus amazonica. vlado viglasky /arizona cactus garden still open???? Icon_sad I was devastated to find this out, as it was the species that I most wanted! Is there anyone here who might be able to help me track some of this down?

I actually spoke to Vlado a while ago about it, I just couldn't afford to take it on. He did tell me about the international guy who wanted to buy it, but also said there was a local lady who was attempting to buy it.
That said it has been up for sale for years from what I saw on his site, there really doesn't seem to be anything that compares to his range. But it's a big outlay, not an unfair price as he has a heck of a lot of stock, but with the economy the way it is it's a difficult time to be selling a business

Love to know how much in $ he wanted for the business as collecting and growing seed is a passion of mine i have never purchased seed from him only traded with fellow growers aust wide would love some of the rare stuff though to graft and then produce own seed.

Curious as to what happened to Vlado's business...anyone know ??

I seem to recall an email from him saying he sold it, but never heard anything ever again...even emailed from the webpage to the (I assume) new owner and didn't get a response. Strikes me as strange that someone would buy a business and then not actually trade ??

Site is still up but hasn't been updated since the takeover it seems...still has Vlado's goodbye message on the front page..

I wonder also. I bought some seeds from him in 2012. Had to go to extraordinary lengths to get in contact but got there in the end. Just speculation but perhaps the new owners are re-structuring before opening trade.

he he.

i have had the pleasure cast apon me.

i have enjoyed coffee and super impressive conversations with this guy. cacti is one thing. greater good of humanity is much more pressing... vlad & i agreed on this.
he is very nice to be around.
he is an important figure for more than just cacti seeds!

whatever your doing mate keep doing it. this world needs people like yo self!
