Since I collect cactus as a ornamental plant, I wash cactus by water every occasion of repotting.
I use soap when it was necessary and possible to use.
I also use a small comb to set long hair of cactus up.


The Alps super kabuto on the photo is under rooting process.
I hope it would complete with a successful result but I am not sure at moment.

Some super colours on these Kikko koh yo seedlings I decided to put on grafts. Kikko trait doesn't usually show up till plants are 5cm diameter or more. Because I know these ones are good colour already I wanted to push them to find out if they are good kikko too.
I reckon I need to start using black backgrounds with this new look forum.....but I am digging it!cheers

One you don't see every day, Conophytum burgeri just about to crust over and drift off into its summer slumber. This species is the ultimate in fused succulent leaf-pair plants. Took seven years to get seeds on this plant grown from seed.

This is an unknown Mammillaria I picked up a few months ago. The flowers opened up this morning. Haven't tried to I.D. it yet but if anyone has any ideas what it is send me a PM.

It has started the flowering season of Thelocactus.
2 Thelocactus hetarochromus were in flower in the afternoon.
The attached photo is one of them.

Although we had a heavy shower early in the morning, it was good sunshine in the afternoon.
Quite many asterias were in flower in the afternoon.

I have been making more to fill the room up.

The only thing to flower so far (except for a couple of mams that have been going non stop for almost a month) in my collection is this Notocactus - I took this pic last week and have got 4 more flowers from it.
Still waiting for summer over here flower

I once collected Gimnocalycium.
I have no intention to collect more but still remained some.
I propagated the following 3 species from seeds.

1. G. spegazzinni v loricatum, sowed seeds on 16 November 2003


2. G. vatteri, sowed seeds on 16 October 2004


3. G. spegazzinii v ornatum, sowed seeds on 17th November 2004

Nice plants. I love gymno's but I have a lot of trouble with sun damage and 'wrinkling' up here. Definitely need a greenhouse.

Yes Gimnocalycium will be damaged easily by strong sunlight.

I cover Gimnos area by 50% green shade-cloth permanently.
I add one more 50% green shade-cloth between mid of November to mid of March.
Gimnos are covered by 2 layer of shade-clothes in summer time.
