What did you do to your cacti/botanical garden today (pictures welcome)

I would recommend removing the pup either soon and grafting it to something els, if you want to keep it,
Growing it out big enough to cut off and root by itself.
Or just cutting it off.
You could alway grow it out a little then graft another button to it lol

prepositioned all my pots to the sunny foyer. overnight lows should be above freezing in a couple weeks.
then out to the front porch which is covered.
there they can acclimate but stay dry unless they want to start sucking moisture in through their stoma
going to build them a bunch of cedar planter boxes so they can look pretty out on the deck and get all the sun they want all summer

It looks sort of like a pup, but I feel like these seedlings are a little young to be throwing out pups. Perhaps it's a cristate mutation? This seedling is from Ikaros seeds that I planted back in Dec.

Cactus emancipation day. All my cactus has been taken out of their winter home and back on the table. Collection almost doubled over the winter months due to being flushed with overtime income and Gummint monies I shouldn’t have technically qualified for was rolling through.
As per usual,here is a pic of my favorite of my collection as you all know, “Lumberjack”
Blue label scotch bottle for scale.

I set up an area for my cuttings to do their thing rooting. Earlier this week, my neighbor had a bunch of trees removed and their remaining trees got pruned back extensively. I had to set up a new area to keep the cuttings out of the sun. Nothing fancy but it gets the job done!

As long as there is a gradual acclimation period so you don't burn them, they look fine to go into real sun. I find morning sun is kinder to acclimating cactus. I still need to provide broken shade mid day to mine as the summer sun can get vicious here.......

Thank you sky! I have a few spots I can work with. The side of my house gets full am sun and bright ambient light after 1pm
That sun schedule sounds perfect. Just keep an eye out for red/purpling. I had a small hybrid crest in the wrong spot in my greenhouse and when I finally popped my head in there for an inspection and to offer encouraging words to my Carrie,I found the little guy a deep purple on one side.
A week in the window sill (indirect light) and his color is almost back to normal.
Love your collection btw

You can’t freeze pecans and have them still be viable .
Thank you for the advice and kind words. My collection is all due to generosity of members here the advice here is so beneficial I try to tell everyone I come across to check out the site here and to become a member. Quick question, anyone here grown pecans and walnuts from seed? I collected 30 some pecans and 9 walnuts back in November and kept them all in the freezer til last week and now I want to plant them any advice?

This is why you leave the spider webs alone in the garden. Although I don’t believe this one is a web maker, it illustrates how important having the little guys around is.
Cute little guy ain’t he?!
His victim was still twitching at time photo was taken.
