Nice! Lovey dubby
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Great banner Cal.
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

But for Baja's banner in July, The thread "Banner for July 12, 2019 by Baja_Costero" in Site Banners forum
I may have never known about these wonderful little cacti that bloom so beautifully. Thumbs up

They were planted bare-root the first week in August in an 18" pot.
I will have to give them more room eventually, but they are a happy little group for now. Smiling
Here they are one month later. =O

Must see these time-lapse videos of Echinopsis.
http://echinopsis.com/time-lap... .....just amazing. Blinking

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! Thumbs up

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. Thumbs up

Thanks again for all the nice comments, thumbs & acorns. Smiling
I hope you will add one or more of these special cacti to your garden. Thumbs up
