    My Little Spikey Kids

    Well back at the begining of May i found some seeds i had in a unmarked ziplock that was stashed in the barn with some plant pots and such, i know they were old but took the chance and planted um anyways. I ended up with these spikey kids. They have since been repoted 2 times after they germinated.. I had moved them out to the GH and they are starting to color up nicely. Mainly with pinkish purple color and better green color. When i last repoted them i made sure to put the same kind into each pot. Whats funny is when they germinated they was just green looking leafs i wasnt sure what they were so i kept um more on the peat/sandy side. Top of the pots is desert sand and under is just peat/perlite/desert sand mix. They only get waterd once a week for now which i just did befour taking the pics.
    I have 3 of these.


    I have 2 pots of these,



    I have 2 pots of these as well,


    and one pot with something else in it which i forgot to snap a pic of..

    Are not most Cacti notoriously s-l-o-w growers?

    Tracey,
    I guess those kids feel neglected. You probably do not hug them enough and not tight enough to make them feel secure.

    D_muscipula, repotting is very easy with cactuses, 1. make sure your very very careful,
    2. make sure to use tweezers, 3. use a magnifying glass or ones ol woman specks.. LOL!! and last but not least a knife with a skinny tip so as to get under around the very tiny short frail root systom. I use to grow all kinds diffrent cactus way back there very intresting and easy to grow. The 2 biggest mistakes in cactus is either over watering or not watering when you should. Next time i repot i will snap pics in the progress so you can see how i do it..

    Fryster, most all cactus are slow growing but there is some cactus that grow at a fast rate, these babies were at first real slow to get there spikes and somewhat cactusy look, once they got a few spikes they took right off. Take for instance the tall skinny ones they grew faster than all the others and are still growing much faster, they were the first to germinate within a few days of sowing..

    Steve, LMAO!!! You crack me up bud..
