My weekend's work

I managed to get some of my plants potted up to 4" pots this past weekend. These are all from seed, and I'm pleased to see them growing so well.

L - R:
Front row: Astrophytum hybrid, mammillaria sp, Acanthocalycium spiniflorum violaceum, Rebutia sp
Middle row: Mammillaria sp (maybe crinita), Lobivia sp, Echinocactus sp, Ferocactus sp
Back row: Lobivia aurea schaferi, Echinocereus sp, Mammillaria sp, Astrophytum sp

I've been accused of neglecting the rest of my collection that I didn't grow myself..... there may be some truth to that and I need to give the other plants some more attention.


  • WOW...great job getting these plants up from seed...I am not brave enough to try it...was it hard???

  • Julie,

    These plants shown are all between three and five years old. I must say that these are the survivors of my early attempts at growing from seed, when I made a lot of mistakes and killed many of them. Now I do a lot better since I have more experience.

    If you want to try it, go ahead, but start with the more tolerant species else you may become discouraged.
