Recent seedlings

I'm feeling good about my seedlings so far this year. For the most part, they have germinated well, and are growing quite well. Must be a combination of improved technique and conditions, good quality seed, and the new fertiliser that I have been using.

A quick look at some of them, mostly sowed between April and June this year:

Turbinicarpus pseudomacrochele

Mammillaria boolii

Gymnocactus beguinii

Mammillaria (Dolichothele) baumii


  • Hi Jade, Your cactus seedlings look great! If you do not mind me asking....what type of fertilizer do you use. You mention in your post about your improved techniques....the seedlings look great!

  • Karen,

    I recently got some Cal-Mag fertiliser at a horticultural society meeting so I have been trying it to see if it will result in stronger growth. So far they seem to be doing well.
