Working on the little ones

Today I managed to "pot up" a tray of seedlings - mostly about a year old or so, from the sowing pot to a 128-cell tray (about 1" square or slightly smaller).  I'm looking forward to seeing these grow up without mishap, although I know that losses can't be avoided.

A variety of species, with a few Turbincarpus, Echinofossulocactus, Coryphantha, among others.

And while I know that it is not good to deliberately create uknown and unrecognised hybrids, I couln't stop myself from cross-pollinating these two Lobivia hybrids that were blooming this morning.  Hoping to get fruit with viable seed to grow MORE babies.  Love these Lobivia flowers!
