These are the 3 fattest Lophs in the batch. They’re a bit smaller than they’re supposed to be (currently 4-5 mm), but I’m just glad they’re still here!
These slow growing buddies will take forever to grow to adult size (not a fan of grafting), but they’re so cute, it doesn’t even matter.
It’s hard to spot all of the seedlings in the pot, but there are still plenty of them left!
Most of the baby Lophs have healed up nicely from the sun burn and stunted growth. This one is the healthiest of them all.
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.
A little extra water and less sunlight did wonders. They’re still far from looking like adult peyote, but I hope they catch up soon.
I succeeded in hardening the Loph seedlings off with no casualties. I just took off the humidity dome and left them to grow in normal humidity without looking back.
Now that they’ve been exposed to fresh air and stronger sunlight for a week, they look much more mature and healthy.
The Lophs been allowed to get 30 minutes of direct afternoon sunlight every day as an experiment. They’re not the fastest growing cacti, but a little extra light may speed them up :3
