The editor's desk:

Happy New Year to all our readers!

Very special thanks to those readers who sent photos and stories about unusual plants, to all those who lent a hand to our magazine in 2004!

With all good wishes for the Coming Year from the Cultivar team!

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.

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