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.

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.

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..

Comment by Barb Z-7b Okla on October 15, 2012 at 2:45pm

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.

2nd pic prickly pair maybe?? or a tower cacti.. they could be either or..

3rd pic, those saguaro.. they look like them.. great..

"I agree....they are a beautiful species of butterfly.  I checked Butterflies and Moths of North America (BAMONA) site and they do show it as a species for your area, too, so perhaps this year will be the year?  :)"
