NOTICES. 15 September 2018: New auction to start 1 November 2018. If you want to save your data now is a good time. We shall be moving to a new server soon. I shall have back-ups of all data if needed.

NOTICES. 05 September 2018: I have little info regarding EMS at thye moment. Some say it is OK others not. There is still a huge backlog of millions of parcels at JHB sorting centre. Direct airfreight or DHL express (not for Japan) remains the best option at this stage.

NOTICES. 31 August 2018: These were the last uploads for this session. A big thank you for everyone taking part !! More messages to follow later.

26 July 2018:Strike at Postal service over. They have a back log until middle\late August. If nothing unforeseen happens maybe we can send EMS end of August.(Please note that EMS/post tracking is very unreliable).Other options are DHL Express(Expensive with reliable tracking) and DHL Global Mail(No tracking).

17 June 2018:There have been two reports that EMS is working again. They probably paid the airlines. Question of course is are they going to pay the airlines next month also ? You are welcome to have orders send EMS now. We can however only insure the parcel for 20 days after sending.

04 June 2018:EMS/post does not function anymore. We recommend only to send by DHL Global Mail, DHL Express or airfreight. If we send EMS we can only insure the parcel for 20 days after sending. DHL Global mail has no tracking unfortunately, but neither has EMS as of late.

27 March 2018:No sales outside auction unfortunately unless specifically advertised. We shall not be able to reply to such requests anymore.

On 28 February 2018: A number of people have requested to visit the nursery. Unfortunately this is not possible as we are extremely busy and I am often not present. Also there are no sales on the premises and no price list.

On 9 January 2018 an expensive Haworthia splendens has disappeared from the greenhouse of Mr. Gerhard Marx. An extensive search for the plant has been launched but it was never found. We are by now absolutely sure it was stolen. The only persons that visited that greenhouse on 9 January 2018 were a family that arrived unannounced. They drove a blue double cab with a Gauteng registration number with bicycles tied on top. We offer a reward of R 5000 for anybody with information that can lead to the arrest and conviction of the thieves.

NOTICE 11 MAY 2017. All auction PayPal payments now to haworthiagems@gmail.com not any more to izimak... Plants not claimed for more than a year will be re-auctioned without notice.
