Good afternoon, These seedlings are just 8 weeks old. I potted these up to 3 " pots today. I started them in a mix of 2 parts potting soil and 1 part grit. The roots were slowing the flow of water through the pot, so I potted up and used my all grit mix. The grit mix allows great air flow, won't breakdown, and less transplant shock when repotting or potting up. With the grit mix I fertilize with ever watering.
BTW the one in the center has a caudex of 7/8" in diameter.

Do you put them out in the sun right away after transplant or in the shade?

Tin, They are in the shade now, but will acclimate to full sun. As the summer sun decreases, it won't be long before they will be brought inside.
