  6. I went to check the TBM's and noticed most of the white spots have disappeared. The first pic shows the sunburn scars at the rear and the remains of the white spots on the front pup. This has been moved to 50 % sun. The second TBM is still in full sun , small marks remaining.
  7. Sunburn ? ..... have got similar on my TBMs (in full sun) which appeared after hot sunny days, moved one out of the full sun into 50 % sun it looks much better now. Are yours in full sun ?

    How do you stop seedlings dying from fungus?

    For starting seedlings I use tap water, the residual chlorine helps to disinfect, I read somewhere. I only use propagating sand with no organics.

    Hey Dreamwalker, I bought 10 seeds as cereus peruvianus monstrose, 4 germinated, 2 seem plain CP, one went monstrose as pictured, the other one I have given away looks like fairy castles, heaps of small columns. Cheers !
