all going well and barring me going to jail for cutting off some thiefs hands, open to the public summer 2021.

picnic tables and bbq pits, and maybe the odd campsite as well.

just to clarify, there will be more, but this is just about it for this years planting except for bits and pieces I pick up along the way, still got at least 3 times as much space again.

it will slow down though, ive planted pretty much at least 1 of everything I have from 10+ years collecting. so I wont be able to maintain this pace.

first pic mate, are some of those on the far right leaning way over? 

 

feel free to stake 'em upright until they get acclimated to growing in mama earth

Great work!

 

Are you going to kill/clear the grass around the base of each plant so they're not competing for root space? Looks pretty arid so you might find that makes a noticeable difference to growth.

 

I wish I had that much space... so good!

the grass dies off in summer, but yeah, just using the ride on mower and wipper snipper so far to keep the grass at bay, im hoping eventually the root systems from the cacti will eliminate at least a bit of the grass. im trying to avoid poison if possible and planning on using shears for very close to the plants.

In your dreams lol.  :)

 

what will happen first is the growing tip turning upward and eventually the weight of the 90 degree bend and new vertical growth segment either breaking the stem at the first bend or pushing the second 90 bend down to the ground.  The longer you wait to stake them the more they will permanently solidify in their current position.

well other plants I planted earlier have stood up and im watching the ones in the pic slowly rise.

and at my old joint I had a 1m  pachanoi snap at the base, I just left it, and within 3 months it was standing straight again

Nice work buddy this is great!! Gonna be great in a few years and I'll be frequenting  your campsites with other sabers I assume that's for sure!! Not to kick a dead horse but surely a few $0.20 hardwood stakes would help those leaning fellas out? I imaging the situation righting itself a lot sooner!

 

but leaning psycho0 aren't gonna stop me visiting either way!!

my thoughts are just leave them to do their thing, I don't really wanna force them in any direction in case they break at the bend.

 

I think this might be my favourite plant (it needs a drink)

Great work, with the collection and its home.

I find the ride on mower so meditative, brilliant to have a grid staked out by Cactus to mow.

Check em all out while cruisin along.

 

Fuck,there is just zillions of cactus between all us members now!!
