I managed to get a decent closeup of my chubby little Echinopsis baby (the oldest and biggest of 45-50 seedlings). Those spikes are already huge!
I mean.. isn’t this just the cutest little plant you’ve ever seen?
My macro lens makes the tiny oxygona seedlings look like Chibi Totoro on the forest floor :3
Pretty much all of the seeds I harvested from my adult Echinopsis a month ago germinated and they’re enjoying life inside my makeshift greenhouse (plastic bag) in 100% humidity.
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.
