Here are some pics of my seedlings. I find nothing more satisfying than growing plants from seed. You need lots of patience though and thats why i graft alot then degraft i am a little impatient.

lol!!!

hey, Ccook, I think I will get some E.obesa seed this year - that is if the damn magpies don't eat them all or destroy my entire collection - is it easy to get going? how old are those seedlings?

Would love to see the Leuchtenbergia seedlings too, I cannot see the photo at the moment

cheers Smile

You have said this too me before and i find it amazing how the obesa all seem to have different patterns... they would have to be my favourite succulant along with lithops.

Sorry it would be more like 18 months now i have some that are 8 months just bigger than thumb nail but they grow fairly fast in a season. I just love them only started with two now have many. I found the seed germinated better after one season of ripening just my experience though. I sowed around ten fresh seeds that were around a month old had one germinate then saved seed for next season sowed around thirty had 80%+ germination.

Trichocereus scopulicolis seedlings i originally grew these for grafting stock but now i have oodles of harrissia ill use that instead as it is a better performer by giving more flowers and earlier. So i will just grow these on.

I sowed these pleiospilos seed in August last year they quickly outgrew their 63mm pot and so i had to re pot them into trays. The same thing with the Titanopsis they grew reasonably fast so i also had to re pot earlier than expected.
