Here is my barrel cactus, which I got for a steal! It's about 16 inches across.

About time to repot that one I think Smiling

My west garden has golden barrel cactus in it, they are getting to the age where they are having babies, and I just plant them right beside their mother plant. I like them clumped together, they make quite the statement!

Mine will soon be going on top of a tiny hill in my newly developing succulent garden.
I'd love to get pointers (pun intended) on how to carefully - without injury to body or plant - transplant large Cacti. I'm thinking about wrapping it in a big beach towel?

I have used a folded newspaper to hold a cactus when repotting. I think the spines might get entangled in a towel.

Yeah, but we are talking BIG HEAVY cacti... I'm also going to be considering transplanting a 9 ft tall Cereus peruvianus...with three trunks!

Yes, tarp came to mind. I only have plastic but canvas would of course 'hold' better. I'll check around! Thanks.

I know nothing about cactus, but that one is sure cute. I love the way the blooms make encircle the top of the plant.

I am not an expert by any means but would guess it would be it is a Mammilaria. I think there are many unnamed hybrids that come to the market.

well Hetty.. is sounds like you need two pairs of hands ..all with heavy gloves on.. to manage a 9' length of cactus.. so as not to stress the ends or middle when lifting it about..
this one would be easy.. as it's so short and has no needles.. .. and no cute little flowers.... I'm glad it got it's flowering out of the way before comming inside for the winter..

I agree Gordon! I love that Stapelia too and mine has been putting on quite a show! I used to have one with dark red blooms but I think it is no longer here.

Funny plant... I gave away a cutting of this one... and when it bloomed it had the red flower also... I was thinking either they haad got another ... some how..... or perhaps there had been two types in there together ... after hearing your red one might be missing... my thought is ..perhaps they manage to change some...
as casual as my cataloging is... I've little help there

ok i need some id for these 2 different kinds 1 st kind has been referred to century plant grows for about 10 yrs sends a bloom spike 30+ feet in the air then it dies BUT puts pups up everywhere so these reproduce that way.


Thumb of 2011-10-27/chefmike92/17535a pup



Thumb of 2011-10-27/chefmike92/723c7c hard to see but it is 9 yrs old



Thumb of 2011-10-27/chefmike92/70b61dsame as above and the sikes on these are very big and sharp

the second one looks kind of like it but a lot lighter green and dosnt give but a few pups and they are very close and in a few years it sends a flower spike 20 ft in the air blooms yellow then gets little plants on the flower spike on its tips and that falls and spreads these plants all over and the mother plant dies also



Thumb of 2011-10-27/chefmike92/9d9270 this doesn't like freezing and these are on the mother that died 2 years ago

any ideas (i know thats a dumb question )you all are great i know you know what they are and does anyone want some?
