Thaks, Freddy. Since I live in St. Louis (zone 6 barely) I can't overwinter my cacti and succulents outside. I also have a nice notocactus magnificus that has 2 fat buds on it right now.
Great specimen, is it outside year-round or do you winter it over? Mine have to be wintered over in zone 7 and it takes a while to get back to normal in the spring. Happy Gardening.
Hi everybody! I am not new here, but I am new AGAIN! I had to get a new email account and I'm still getting everthing back to where it used to be. I actually have a new picture of my Notocactus uebelmannianus. This is the same one that had one flower on it last winter.
Dear Freddy, I wish i lived close enough.. I would SOOooO come help , first thing in the morning. If I lived anywhere near you, I would help JUST so i could pick up broken peices alll day... right Bob?! LOL, at the inside joke. Although, i was trying to be funny.. i DO wish you had some H.E.L.P. ! help...!
Sounds like U have been very busy Freddy!! Been kind of nice lately until this cold front came in!! Sleet/snow on my poor GH is not good!! it is on the south side so maybe miss most of it.. Post some pics when U can..
How is everyone elses Cactus doing?? Inside is not a good place for sure!! I have lost some but others are doing just fine!
Barb, I'm occasionally potting up some cuttings, trying to keep my hands busy. Not much room left in the house. Front was torn up by sewer repairs, may take all winter to get it in shape, all lawn, no planting areas. Have to find some volunteer labor. Gonna' start trimming back vines, overhanging branches, etc. while everything is dormant. Will add pictures as I make significant progress.
hello Prickly land!! NO posts since Oct?? Wow..
My seeds that I posted on are still doing very good.. I did get them thinned out and they are doing better.. I used tweezers.. I am losing my other succulents thou.. figures.. the 3 barrol cactus I have are fine..
Great that U got them all in Freddy!! U have some nice ones for sure!!
I hope everyone's cactus are doing just GREAT!!
Finally got all my potted plants in for the winter. I was even able to stage a few big ones on a table below a large window. Still have a few dozen to grub up for bare root storage. Now all I have left is closing out my water gardens.
I am seperating the ones of 5 soon to their own small pot. and some others too so only one or two per container to see how they do. this soil is for growing them and drys out fast so I might leave them in it for now.. I did use fine gravel in two of the taller saguaro to stablize them..
All have a GREAT prickly day!! Right..
Hello out their in prickly land!!
My seed cactus are getting bigger, kind of.. those tall ones that i think are NOT what I want, are really growing. I see more developement in the smaller ones, I do hope SOME or one is a prickly pair.. Really.. But U never get what U want.. Any ideas on an ID?? Thanks.. 1st pic, I see some barrol I hope, not sure.
