    Talking My "ALMOST" Cram Packed Winter Cactus Retreat.

    Well i had to get all my cactuses in last week due to awful cold temps durring the night and temps durring the day was nooooooooo btter for us. Its just been crappy crappy crappy out and i wasnt taking the chance of losing my babies.. Anyways this is how they spend the fall/winter months. I took this first pic as i was loading them in, and figuring out how i was gona place them. There are several cactuses not in the pic.

    and this is how it looks today and to think i still need to get 7 more cactuses in there somewhere. Its gona be a tight fit for the winter.. LOL!! Nothing fancy as its in my office and it suits them well, who says ya cant keep cactuses in a tank..




    Sorry bout the lighting i have to switch over 2 of the daylight bulbs to cool white bulbs the other 2 bulbs are GE grow lights, im using 2- 2ft long shop lights over the tank.

    Very nice. Are those some Saguaro saplings I see on the right hand side?

    PS - Oh hey! There's Saguaro all over.

    I'm sure you can if you do some moving and maybe taking out some big rocks.

    Awe, you can squeeze some more in there, lol. Nice composition. I've always liked the color contrasts of different cacti species.

    Hey Joe, if your talking about the pots with all the little babies in um your guess is as good as mine, i dont know what they are. Those are all the babies i grew from old seeds that i found in a zip lock bag out in the barn that wasnt labled. By the way Joe your gona like the package im sendin yaz soon..

    Capensis, even if i took the big rock out i still wont have room for the larger pots i still have to get in there. I have 2 40 gal long tanks in the barn gona bring one in next week and start working on it, with the cactuses and rocks and maybe some nice desert decorations and all the cactuses placed right its gona look real nice out in my livingroom for the fall/winter months.

    LOL!! Xvart, there squeeeeeeeezed as it is plus i dont like things all cram bunched up. And yes i gota agree with the color contrasts. Nice having so many diffrent cactuses with diffrent colors and such..

    I should have it all done and set up by next sunday, im gona be VERY busy for the rest of this month, racing tomarrow night, club events the rest of this month, more races and birthday bashes. Pics will be posted ASAP when done...
