What did you do to your cacti today?

Recommended Posts

^^^

should root easily since it was on a stock. could easily make two of them even

ants have been stealing most of my seed last couple of years

they take both the seed and fruit flesh

that was not true for mandrake fruit though - they seemed totally indifferent to the seeds, but so inclined to the sweet flesh

I haven't been picking my lopho seed either, maybe I am stupid

or rather lazy

Hmmmm liquid ant baits.... I wonder if that works... I have a huge problem with ants in my roof: nearly all pests are helped by them

interesting stuff... I wonder how many species I got around here.... At last 3-4 I would say...

Thanks for the advice, buddy. I did that :). I'm going to give a good friend of mine a piece and root the other piece.

Thought I'd share this "Ecuadorian pachanoiXpsycho0" pup (seeds from nitrogen). This cross produced a lot of sexy individuals. One of my favorite crosses.

Been a while since I posted here,.... other priorities. However have been eating lots of dragon fruits lately,............have 7 hylocerues cultivars,.. and 1 selinicerues........ protein smoothies with the fruits mixed in YUMMMM!!! :D

Have been doing allot of repotting also,.....

and also sold quiet a few cacti to people here on the island (Somewhere in the carib)

had a few echinopis bloom on me,..... I was thinking they would never bloom here,... but apparently the do pretty well here..... If only my trichocerues cacti would bloom here.

Moved some babies out into a sunnier spot to start acclimatising them to the warmer months.

Stomped angrily on a few dozen snails this morning. Why the f#$% do they just slime over all the succulent Pereskiopsis leaves and go straight to the top for the young beautiful scion that has just decided to start growing?!? Good thing inverterbrates don't respond to torture, otherwise I wouldn't be able to look myself in the mirror again after I'd finished with them...
