New Nowocactus

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.
