    Growing Outdoors in New Mexico

    Ok, Familiar stuff first:

    My minibog shows excellent progress.

    From late spring or early summer:







    Now:







    Now, for the new stuff:

    An outdoors growrack.



    N. ventricosa - it's showing some sunburn in certain areas.









    Sarracenia seedlings, plastic bag removed:



    N. sanguinea....It got eaten by a colorful grasshopper!



    N. Lady Pauline - look at the leftmost leaf. It got eaten by the rainbow grasshopper! I was able to rescue it from the hungry insect just in time.



    D. capensis and D. binata



    U. gibba



    Cacti seedlings

    I have three different kind of Ferocactus seedlings, I think, and one species of Echinocereus seedlings. I'm not sure what the fifth pot of seeds is, off the top of my head, but I have it written down somewhere. I can get the names later.
    And thanks for the compliment!

    Nice pics. Too bad about the N. sanguinea - it looks like it's going to pull through though.
    I wanted to point out that you might have more success if you move the U. gibba into a large, opaque (preferably black) container. If you can include some other aquatic plants, it'll be even better. Sphagnum can grow aquatically, but in my experience it usually doesn't do well like that in cultivation. Best luck!

    Lol, I don't think the sanguinea will make it - It got chomped pretty bad by the rainbow grasshopper. And the N. Lady Pauline would have suffered the same fate if I had not discovered the grasshopper and beat it off the plant - you can see a chomp left in the leftmost leaf!

    Thanks for the pointers on the U. gibba. I was planning to move it to a better container sometime soon. My little bro has some type of aquatic plant that I could put in with the U. gibba.

    @SeanH,

    Here are the names of the cacti seeds that I sowed:

    CS1: Stenocactus phyllacanthus violaciflorus
    CS2: Echinocereus fitchii
    CS3: Ferocactus peninsularis vizcainensis
    CS4: Ferocactus emoryi rectispinus
    CS5: Ferocactus wizlizenii

    The CS#s are simple seed batch codes, to make labelling the pots easier. The Ferocactus seeds are very easy to sprout.

    @Capensis,

    Thanks!
