Cacti seedlings continued...

in gardening •  last month 

Afternoon Steemers,
Has anyone ever grown cacti from seed?
Well I haven't, but I've had the pleasure of witnessing the process and lending a hand with the Labour involved.

This is a baby Trichocereus sp. X T. pasacana 'Dawsons' doing it's best Tasmanian impression.

In fact this post is about this particular hybrid and how different the seedlings from the same plant can be!

Sorry in advance for the terrible shots, my phone hates cacti pics for some reason...

Every seedling in this tray is the same hybrid as the first plant.

Same tray, different angle.

It will be interesting to watch tem grow and compare them to the parent plants over the coming years.
I'm sure many of the hybrids have differences like these but these stood out because they are all in the same tray.

Thanks for stopping by again Steemers and happy gardening!!!
Sam.

I have.
My oldest ones will be 4 years this summer and I do hope they will show some flowers. At this age they could.
Baby cacti change so much as they grow! For the first year or two they might not look like parent at all. Some anyway :)

Your phone is scared of the nasty spines :D

Hahah, I wish that was the case but it's a case of you get what you pay for haha.
