yeah man it's a strange first time feeling that's for sure, and they're getting a bit of hale today in between the rays too ,

glad they're not as big as the hales tones I've seen on here in the past!

perlite of the gods :D

 

i have done some actual scientific research on my cacti and ready to share my results.

apparently if you take a day old seedling grafted onto a pereskiopsis for 5-7 days and apply a short but powerful force onto it by means of a metal object, it will pass trough the metal and dissolve into thin air leaving just the footprint on the rootstock where it was once attached

Nice cacti zyppel , do you know what cacti that is in the third picture of your last post stunning colour .

 

lost another crest to damping , while I've been away from home . One of my lophs that was gnawed on by a feral cat has plumped back up and the three giant teeth holes have calloused nicely and are starting to fill out obviously recovering from the shock of being rescued from the jaws of death of the great white feline .   

Brother and sister cuts received from godless are going great guns really beautiful colours nice lighter type green with a deep blue glaucusness on the new growth beautiful , thanks again mate .

little opuntia crest is taking off growing all type of what I can only describe as baby cactus fingers , really cool to look at .

also my Eileen is going to have to be renamed I lean , she's growing great nice firm growth but she's weak in the knees not rot not soft or squishy or black or unhealthy looking  , just gives slight less resistance and and she sort of bends at the knees

Dear fozzking it is a varigated cultivar Astrophytum ornatum to my best knowledge, alot of time and effort to get those colours and size.
