PostSubject: Astro seedlings (with pics)   Mon Sep 14, 2015 10:35 am

Hi everyone!

The following photo's are of my Astrophytum seedlings. The first lot of photo's are from the seed hellonasty sent me and are about a year old (yes I know they are very small for this age)
The second lot of photo's are Japanese hybrids that I picked up off ebay and are also about a year old.
There are 3 different pots in total however I have take a few photo's from different angles to try and capture how they really look.

They are still very small but I think:

hellonasty ones
Myriostigma based hybrid including ornatum gene called "Banjyaku"

Japanese ones
Astrophytum hybrids-mix, including both of asterias and myriostigma based

Thanks hanazono,
I've just recently repotted the hellonasty ones and they are going back to green which is good before they didn't have enough water and weren't doing very well.
The Japanese ones were repotted later into better soil.
Hopefully they grow better this season, I have them in less light with more water so should be ok.

I have some other astro seedlings about the same age still in bag, they are nice and green so I'll leave them there a little longer.

What does banjyaku mean?

An Astrophytum hybrid, ornatum x myriostigma is called as "banjyaku" in Japan.
The original meaning of the banjyaku is a huge rock.
