Update on a Cactus cutting I received from Hybrid_Mode01.

http://thehotpepper....sale/?p=1580432

 

     Hell yeah, bud! :cheers: That just made my day!

 

     How are they doing so far this spring? I just put mine outside last weekend and they got their first taste of rain on Sunday night.  Now that they're getting some sunlight I'll probably give them a shot of fish emulsion and some more water soon. I'll get some pics of them once they wake up.

 

 

 

     Also, the next person to respond to this thread gets a free rooted T. bridgesii cutting. :cool:

Went up to Lowe's again this weekend, it was hard to only leave with a few, they had a great selection still!

Picked up these 3:

Gymnocalycium Baldianum...

I'm sure I'll be adding more soon!


Edit, and an updated pic of my Brasiliopuntia Brasiliensis that I bought last year. I noticed they has some new growth, so I tossed them into the grow tent a few weeks ago and they are doing great.

     Heeeeell yes! That worked out great. I knew your name was familliar for some reason - you asked my back in July last year for cuttings. I didn't take any pachanoi cuttings last winter, (I know that's what you wanted) but I cut my bridgesii hedge back hard (you'll like them better anyway). T. bridgesii are way easier to grow IMO and I think they're prettier, especially when they start pushing new growth in spring when they start waking up.

     PM me your addy and I'll get them in the mail this week! :cheers:

This is about 3.5 weeks or so of growth difference on these. April 4th to May 1st.

Yeah, I'm surprised too. Since they are in the grow tent with fans and warmer air temps, I've been watering them once a week with Shultz Cacti & Succulent liquid fertilizer (2-7-7) at the recommended strength of 7 drops per quart of water. I have them in a homemade mix of 1/3 each of potting mix, perlite and coarse sand. It drains really well and they are completely dry a day or two later.
