What did you do to your cacti today?

I hope your losses weren't too extreme.

You should hope for the opposite when testing for cold hardiness the more specimens fail to thrive the more advantage you can see for keeping those that actually made it. I've still got my few frozen bits outside hoping for more freezes, but suffice it to say... I don't see how beneficial that might be seeing that I put thousands of seedlings outside and had less than a handful make it. But, I'm still trying to push the envelope nonetheless.

After freezing my collection... down to a very appalling small number now of survivors, I was greeted with signs of flowers today on this little rascal.flowerheaven.thumb.jpeg.34d3b582fe0b067949f138f1339c59d9.jpeg

:3 at last ... 20190413_150527[1].jpg

only seedlings and peijotl to go for when all risks of frosts farque auf + at least another round of sluggo to perpetuate the out-wipeage of the little farkles...

 

Mind you ,.... better organizing and stackage seems to have allocated a lot of offensive empty space where cacti should be ... what to do about it tho eh? :3

I seem to be eternally repotting.  It's a good thing that I love this task.

I was at the beach for the long weekend and arrived home today to find a bunch of grafts I did on Friday carked it in the heat. On the upside, the weather really brought out some nice marks on a few older plants!

Long time lurker, first time poster! 

 

My variegated pach was getting a bit top heavy today so I grafted the top 2/3 to a sturdier stock
