    I moved it into more shade for spring and have been watering weekly. Over winter it just got rain, which was not much.

    Hi cactus people just wondering if anyone has seen this before? its a T.peru seedling which is expressing a mutation reminiscent of M. geometrizans boobs. Still early days... Just before this new growth emerged there seems to be an infection of the meristem. The spines came out distorted, bent and subsequently fell out leaving a ring of damaged areoles. looks like there's some deformed ribs halfway down too....any ideas?

    Its hard to make out the charcoal in material in the photos, I spose I associate black with wet humusy material.

    Nice one, the pale colour could indicate a lack of light- but that's how they look when they first emerge too. Looks like a pretty organic medium you have there, should be fine if your planning to graft in the next couple of months or so

    Hi, I work at Newtown Garden Market on King St. We have a pretty good selection of cacti, Mostly hamiltons stock, some paradisia and my least favorate, dans cactus. We have some TBMs, pachanoi, candicans. We have a strange hairy echenopsis cultivar from japan called 'Haku Joe' looks like a good candidate for crossing with some of our fav trichos. We also have some mytillocactus and a few crests including a Monvilea spegazzi. Worth a look for sure, cheers.

    Slug and snail repellant plants

    Coffee grinds spread at the bace of the plants can be effective in warding off those slugs and snails, they hate caffeine

    Is this seedling rootbound?

    Nice answer! More than the asker of the question expected I'd say. Good observations, thanks
