Thanks to you.
TBGDN said:New plant for me; and I especially like the slideshow & time-lapse shots. I hope you will post a full size photo (or two) in the data base. There is currently only one there. Nice work Cal!
Thanks, Leon! I'll post a pic (or two) in the DB. It's really an amazing plant.....looks like it belongs in the desert, but
actually from Peruvian highlands, so likes richer soil, and more water.
Very easy to grow, they like rich well draining soil with some sand in the mix. They are cool low mountain cactus so the origonal species that they were crossed with came from lower regions of mountains ranges in Peru. NOT A MOJAVE DESERT CACTUS.
Here are pics I just took to show how they are already "pupping", and may even put out a bloom yet.
Thanks again for all the nice comments, thumbs & acorns.
I hope you will add one or more of these special cacti to your garden.
