Hey all,

 

just acquired a pair of healthy San Pedros, both about 14", not sure how old. they are awesome!

This led me to want more cacti! Did a bit research and pulled the trigger on a live lophophora w. plant from Thailand...  :unsure:  Fingers crossed that it doesn't get seized by customs, or worse i go to jail. im doubtful about the ladder.

 

Anyone else have experience with ordering live plants over seas?

 

Here is a pic of my two boys.

Hey guys,

 

Wanted to give an update on this post in context with its title.

 

Its been just under a month since I took receipt of my first ever cacti, the beautiful SPs you see potted above, I've since acquired a single live LW Texenis, about 1" and said to be 7-8 years old and also begun to germinate a batch of 30 T.Bridgesii seeds. 

 

And today I have what looks like the tiniest baby bridgesii ever!

 

So I wanted to share a few pics with you all.
