Selenicereus grandiflorus babies!

I found these seed packets with Stapelia gigantea and Selenicereus grandiflorus a month ago and decided to give it a try. I don’t think the Stapelia seeds will germinate, because I couldn’t keep the seeds from being overtaken by black mold, even after a good hydrogen peroxide soak. The Selenicereus grandiflorus are doing okay right now. A month after germination, a couple of them have grown these little spikes and they’re adorable!
Selenicereus grandiflorus are known for their huge, beautiful flowers, but the plants themselves can be kind of bland. This is why I love cacti, though. They can blend in with the background, sometimes even be downright ugly for years, but when they finally decide to bloom, they’re magnificent. Even if the flower only lasts for one day.
