My fluff balls are getting increasingly harder to capture on camera without everything being a blurry mess. The “spines” are pretty much covering the body at this point.
I went looking for more big and decorative cacti to fill my new flat and was lucky to find a Notocactus with 3 seed pods!
This cactus is fat and adorable, and in summer it will develop amazing and huge flowers.
I picked off two of the ripened seed pods and scraped out the seeds, washed them and let them dry on a piece of paper.
Some of them had already started to germinate (there were even small seedlings in the old soil next to the adult cactus), so I decided to quickly sow some and hope for the best.
Algae pretty much took over the peyote pot and I had to emergency-repot them all. The only thing I had left was aquarium sand, but the new arrangement looks very clean and organized.
Pseudolithos cubiformis (now watch me kill them all by looking at them wrong)
Astrophytum asterias – cv Super Kabuto
Monilaria moniliformis (the world’s cutest succulent/mesemb)
I’ll sow the Pseudolithos, Astrophytum, Euphorbia, Monilaria and Gibbaeum, because these were the ones I was initially looking for. The Pseudolithos are going to be a pain to raise, but I love a good challenge!
