Repotting day!

It’s repotting day for my cactus seedlings, Gymnocalycium mihanovichii and Sulcorebutia rauschii. My cactus seedlings and the Sulcorebutia should have been repotted a long time ago, even though they seem to be thriving in their way too small pots.

I chose to keep the three biggest cactus seedlings and send the rest off towards someone who might want to adopt them. All of them have been potted in pure Diatomaceous earth cat litter with no potting soil. That way, they’re easy to repot next time, and there’s very little reason to worry about root rot and overwatering.

Just gotta say.. when you mess with spiny cacti, remember to wear gloves or use a tong. Not just your hands. Let’s just say it’s very difficult and painful to remove broken cactus spines from the soft skin under your nails.
