Don't even know where to start.
Most of these cacti were gifted to me.
Before and after: Ariocarpus sp Williamsii seedling
There is also a climbing cactus that has been growing like a weed. Bush league egg carton for now.
San Pedro: mold spots started growing soon after I got this one.
I decided to sterilize a razor and I was able to remove the spots.
Cinnamon was added and soon after the started with the narrow point. Lack of sunlight.
Bear in mind I can only keep them inside facing East on my windowsill.
Ended up getting more mold so I sliced the tip off 4 weeks ago.
The same thing is happening to the SS02 torch on the right side of picture # 2.
Only had these torches for about 4 months now.
I'm using a succulent & cactus soil mix from Amazon. I did add some perlite, sifted peat moss and some vermiculite and some powdered oyster shell.
Still clueless when it comes to the correct cactus mixture.
Now for the serious heartbreak...
The 2 little guys were looking good for the first 3 weeks.
All it took was one curious cat to push my bedroom door open while I took a shower and chewed away on the 2 seedlings.
Alberto I think it's safe to say goodbye.
The root has fallen off and has an orange hue inside.
The Aricarparus sp williamsii is damaged but it's root looks and feels like new.
Does this one have a chance to recover?
I put some cinnamon powder on both seedlings thinking it would save them.
On a good note I was able to get 5 seeds from it before the cat attack.
The last one I needed some advice about as well is the Brigesii.
The one that snapped in half accidentally. Top heavy and I was careless when moving it.
It's been almost 4 weeks since it snapped off.
I have it next to a fan with high hopes I would see some roots sprouting from the base by now.
Is it okay to leave like it is inside the pot or does it need to be cut a certain way.
It's still warm and sunny where I am and will remain this way throughout the winter.
Should I wait till spring to replant this one?
Any advice positive or negative will help me out with my cactus decor.
