Ok that is all for now. If you made it this far, I love you, and thank you. I hope you enjoy this for right now. I have A LOT more to come in the future. <3
 
So I decided to grab a few clones from my garden today, so I can multiply all my stuff. These were the good sized/more mature specimen I have at the moment. Most everything else is a bit too small to clone right now.

Here is a T. peruvianus, no cultivar.

Loved the pics, what a fantastic garden you have.

Pic 16 top left, that (four sided?) bridge-oid Trich is looking etiolated! Increase light or lower temperatures!
 
Incredible collection!

How long have you been tending to your garden?

You're inspiring me to make a start. Perhaps a little san Pedro cactus or something. Any advices for a first time plant?

Cool garden!

Are you greenhouses frost-free? In particular, has your D. cabrerana seen freezing temps?

He was in my old green house before, that was a POS cheap green one from amazon. I regret buying it. But anyway, yea maybe a couple days of the year the temps got below freezing, and he survived in the greenhouse that I kept closed the whole time. Some of the older leaves withered but he still alive.

Yea hes a new clone I got a couple months ago in the middle of winter, and had to sit on the bottom of my old greenhouse. I JUST built this new greenhouse and hes getting ample amount of light now. Should have roots by now as well. Im not too happy about the etiolation but it should smooth itself out soon. I will probably end up having to cut it at that point in the future. Gonna let it grow big first.

This is my 4th year, most of this collection is probably only 2 years or so though. Some are older than others.

My advice for first cactus, just get something that calls to you. Something that visually appeals to your senses. Dont worry about hybrids and cultvars and crazy names for your first cactus. Its good to just get acquainted with how they grow and their needs first. Dont spend too much either lol. My very first cactus was the PC in the big orange pot I have on the first post. I have probably a million of them now from only 2 columns when I started. <3
 
Just got a bunch of new cactus sprouts.

1.(ss02 x ss01) x TPM
2.colossus x TPM
3. (ss02 x ss01) x nitrogen TPQC
4. TPQC x nitrogen TPC
5. scopulicola x pachanoi
6 Browningia hertlingiana (sourced from the wild in SA)
7. Arboricola x orange california
8. T. tacaqueriensis
9. macroganus x super pedro
10. peruvianus 'john' x scopulicola
11. scopulicola x bridgesii 'Tig'

Im pretty excited lol. Only been 7 days since planting and most have sprouted.

I planted 248 seeds total.

Beautiful, friend!

Good work you're doing :)

How cold does it get where you are?

The average temp during winter is hovering around 30s and 40s. Sometimes there will be a little cold spurt of high 20sF but it only lasts a couple hours or so, and doesnt happen often.
 
A few pics from today.

Mammilaria in flower. Might try to cross pollinate with another Mamm I have flowering.
