What did you do to your cacti today?

Recommended Posts

Yeah Bedospines is onto it. Pretty common astro clone.

Moonunit when i bought the boultwood clone from you... You said there was only one other with it and that would have been 6-9 months ago. 

It grows like a madman and is fat as so i can see why it would be good grafting stock. I really love it mate so cheers for getting it around.

Noice!! Clone mate well worth spreading!!

Have you had any flowers yet? How big are your plants of boultwood? Pics?

Cheers b

I took a bunch of photos of my cupboard babies. Moved them inside because I was germing them outside (at this time of year) like an idiot.

Last two in the takeaway containers are WAY too wet, I know. I'm taking their lids off every other day and letting them dry out a bit.

 

Next up... building an indoor grow cabinet for the cold months and for starting seedlings super healthily all year round.

I may the mistake of joining a hot pepper forum and now I'm no longer satisfied with how my chillies are doing... I need lights! I want those tight nodes, big glossy leaves and short (but fat stems) stature. I think they be my true calling.

new seedlings are doing well in the shed.. one heat mat for 5 shelf though *sigh... to keep the seedlings warm or the peres? hmmm, need to invest in more heat mats.. possibly a DIY mission after looking at prices...

good luck Atom hope the last ones don't damp off on you.

Checked on this cut today, and pretty sure it has thrown some roots. It is busting at the seams!

I personally don't do anything, they right themselves. But when grafting I do pick those ones first, for some reason

I installed some bamboo screen along the fence yesterday afternoon, loving it so far.

Also took a few cuttings to pot up next week, and thought I'd snap a pic of this succulent, can't remember if it's a Crassula but I've had it for 4 years and this is her first bloom :)

You are the man, d00d!

Just googled Kalanchoes, didn't realise they were so closely related to Crassulas. We sell Kalanchoes here at work but they're tiny & look nothing like the one in my yard. Big family huh..

Will pm you shortly regarding succulents, thanks again mate.

 

Nrivers, my dad keeps buying them haha I'll come home from work and he'll have another two dinosaurs for me to put in the garden :)

there are some Kalanchoes with HUGE fuckin leaves, they're awesome, I got one type. 

 

I potted my newly bought  Hylocalicium chimera own roots... Looks alien and promising....

Anyone else get anxious and little bit sad when they cut the cacti? Well this had to be done, it will take a couple years for this guy to recover its stature but now I have so much more.

nah, I am fearless, I dont even get stressed cutting my larger bridgesii crest

 

seriously, I have cut back my cacti so much I am immune.

 

OK only when I cut something monster for the first time , of which I got only one.. And especially when its a pristine uncut specimen.. 

 

F.e. I am gonna be stressed a bit when I first cut my Stetsonia crest its first cut... gosh goes so slowly
