Ffter collecting cacti for a few years, I shifted my interest to other succulents in the early 1980s. I remember my first plants very well: Euphorbia balsamifera and Simarouba sp. (now known as Beiselia mexicana).
After my first trip to Kenya in 1986, I founded Mbuyu, a nursery specializing in the succulent plants of that country. For 29 years I conducted the nursery part-time, and since 2015 this has become my main activity.
Mbuyu is the Swahili name for Baobab(Adansonia digitata). But Mbuyu also refers to old things and elders with a lot of experience and wisdom. I hope to have both.
In addition to the plant trade, I am involved in organizing habitat trips to visit the succulent paradise of Kenya.
It is a real pleasure for me to participate in the BoCF.
