Holy freakshow, that is mighty!

I wish i had those possibilities, but with the danish weather-situation i can only put my "babies" outside 5-6 month a year.

Good luck to your garden, even though it doesn't seem to need it. ;)

Thanks JJ, very kind words. :)

'67Ford, if it makes you feel any better; I've never, ever experienced real snow at my house, never seen a White Christmas either lol. I've been snowboarding twice but those are the only two times I've seen/felt snow.. I'd love to have my entire town covered in snow atleast once, ain't gonna happen though :(

@Brendo: I live in Denmark (in Scandinavia) which means that our summer is down to something like may/june- august-septemper...

The cacti can only be outside from something like april to october, at least if you want to be protected from sudden minus-degress in the night and terrible storms in the autumn which can come pretty sudden.

One of my biggest wishes is to move south - either to spain, portugal (something like that) or maybe even further away like [who-knows-where], but certainly to a place where i can grow some ganja without worrying about mould-attacks from autumn and a summer that stops way to sudden and fast.

I am a bit (just a bit lol) jealous of all you people who live in a habitat where you can plant your cacti directly in the ground and then keep them there, that is a big thing in my book!

 

By the way:

I am noticing some grey/brown areas on one of your T. Bridgessi-pups (the lowest parts), can anyone tell me what it is?

Here is the picture (taken from above):

post-136624-0-37794000-1388808398.jpg

 

I have some similar "growth" on a couple of my T. Pachanoi (which as I can see has been slowly spreading during the winter) and I am a bit scared about what it is.

Is it dangerous for the cactus, is there a way to get rid of it (without throwing the cactus out - i really like this one…) and what should i do?

Should it at least be quarantined from the other cacti?

As it is now it is just standing together with the other ones in the window (about 15 degrees celsius and almost no watering).

Hey JJ,

 

I guess it works both ways in some aspects, as said above I've never had snowfall in my area, that's something I'm extremely jealous of, being able to have snowball fights in the streets, a big white christmas, etc (or is that just in the movies?) but I guess we can't have it all, hey. Man I'd love to move to Spain, for the ladies, for the ganja and the weather is alot drier than where I live, it gets quite humid here. But trust me I am truly grateful for being able to grow these guys outdoors, I spend hours in my chair staring at them like an idiot lol.

 

Hey regarding the Bridgesii, the parent is quite scarred/sunburnt as you can see, so I just chalked it down to the pup carrying along some of the scars. It's not causing any problems to growth so I'm not worried about it. However, the scarring grew with the cacti, you're saying it's 'spreading' during the winter, can you provide any pics? My instincts are thinking it should be fine though.

Oh and Wildedibles, I'd be happy to offer you a cutting of the Aloe if you were interested. Would I be allowed to send one to your country? I think I remember you mentioning you're in Canada, forgive me if I'm mistaken.
