this fellow just jumped into my heart and said “good mohning mate I missed you.“

I love it when you get a little present like that. We are dealing with some  down pours of rain right along with a category 5 hitting Florida and going who knows where now so I'm just hoping my cacti are all still here in the next few days. Good to see yours are not just looking good, but excelling.

They still adapting to the new situation here in catalunia, it was very hot and dry and still have to developing sufficient rootsystem. But all are healthy, some scars and healing wounds, i let em do their healing. For you and your plants i wish the best. We are connected and the plants can take a lot. They live now in so many parts of the world and good people like you taking care of them.

Thanks.

I am building it up, poco a poco, step by step. Yes it is a lot of work and the stones are heavy, after some hours working with them. 

Next year I will make some space between the plants. First step was to bring the cacti in the ground. The place was in a natural situation, a lot of shrubs, bush and no terraces at all. But here we have a lot of nice stones and now some trichos. The cactis like it here and lets see what the winter brings. Weatherdata and statistic is fine but you never know. Cross the fingers.

Will keep you updated.

Not yet, yes I see its time for t.poco, tarijensis, will get some.

Most of the plants here are bridge, perivianus, pachanoi, some terscheckii, werdermanius, hybrids and a lot of echinopsis-hybrids, not columnar.

Next year we add complementary plants. 

These place will be created for the purpose of inspiration and gathering cactusgrowers and cactuslovers. More to tell, when the first winter was gentle to the plants. I have no experience with cactis here and the cactis and I face the challenges and natures will.

When you start seeing Iktomi (spider) it is a clear sign you may have too many cacti on your brain.

 

On a serious note, I love seeing seedlings much more so than seeing cuttings, but why limit yourself to just one choice? Beautiful collection @Matagordamudskipper.

I have a bunch of seedlings I need to get pictures.  I bought a master grow pack from Australia and I've been buying from from misplant. As well as other sources, thousands of seed.

Those big spiders are all over the property as are smaller ones that patrol the cactus pots keeping bugs away

Here is an update on one of my favorite seedlings at the moment. She is showing a nice soft lime green coloring next to her darker green sisters and has a slightly lighter patch of lime right up front. It will be interesting to see how this little Trichocereus hybrid develops. My big hope is that she has a nice red or lavender tinted flower. If she will keep that variegation in combination with a nice colorful flower I will indeed be on cloud nine. I have a feeling this one is going to shine for many years to come in my garden.

Matagordamudskippe I like em phat and in this case she is phat and fat so the best of many worlds right now. I am deliberating right now as to whether to graft some more albino specimens or graft more variegates.  The albinos of course don't stand a chance without being grafted, but may develop some variegation once they are grafted and so the choice is always a hard one. In the end it really doesn't matter though so long as I have a single variegate to act as a parent I can be assured that I will have a field of variegated seedlings in the years to come.

interesting plant pp.

 

this more or less confirms what I have been thinking for a while, that the plant I have with bright pink flowers (lots of photos on here) that grows to about 6ft is an echinopsis-trichocereus hybrid. the 'angularity' of the ribs and the spines are spot on.

 

nice garden btw.

I absolutely can not state this enough, but I love seeing seed grown specimens and my hat tips to all those who take the time to really get to know their cacti by growing them from seed. Thanks for sharing your pictures with us bardo.
