Remember, if it pups it will slow down growth of the scion.

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

Checking on my seedlings today and found this interesting development:

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!

So these guys were sown 3-25-2019 this is they're 3ed season starting, do you think they are large enough for direct full sun? The 5 or so top cuts will stay on the porch getting 3 to 4 hours full setting sun as did all the big boys last year but what are your thoughts?

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.......

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

Epithelantha micromeris with two buds, one flowering, pollinated today. 

They are very small and of cream colour.

The seed pods will be of bright red color and 1-2 cm long.

You can’t freeze pecans and have them still be viable .

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.
