JakeA007 said:Thank you both for your replies, the help identifying them and advice on best way to plant them, think I will definitely stick with my 30cm window planter but have them individually potted inside. Would I need to use the activated charcoal that came with the cactus soil and if so where does that go? Thanks again. Jake
JakeA007 said:Do these look ok now I've planted? I didn't have any pots the next size up as the roots were coming through the small ones so I made these as I'll hiding them in the window planter. Thin gravel in bottom with lots of drain holes, cactus mix soil with a little charcoal.

JakeA007 said:Ok thank you Tarev, so you personally wouldn't be worried about the gravel in the bottom?

Му soil is made from gravel. I wouldnt worry. I dont loose many plants...and when i do...its usually for other reasons..
