@lesliecole49 took around 18 months from sowing seed til this photo. They’re not hard to grow but it feels like an achievement to grow a cactus from seed 😂

@jmlincoln I had no idea until I randomly saw seeds online 😜 not many germinated but these are the 2 of 5 that did 😁

I can't even keep a cactus alive! So growing from seed, to me, is a great accomplishment! You go, girl!

@gjones thanks Katy 😛 mine are only in 2” pots still but about due a bigger home I think. I can’t believe you have so many 😲 can see why you’re addicted though. It’s fun to watch what they turn into 😛

@anges thanks Ange 😛 never had success with ones I’ve bought but less tempted to overwater them in the greenhouse so maybe that’s what’s keeping them alive 😂

@gjones sounds like a plan 😁 the spikes seem to grow faster than the actual cactus 🤣

So that's not bad Kerry, February. I'm so impatient with seeds, in my mind I figured it was 2 years . Hahaha !! 🤣😎😂😁

comment

@sherrisgarden I must admit I am too 🙈 if the pack says 14-21 days then I wanna see them within 3 weeks 🤣 slow growing ones are a real test of patience. But these have just sat happily in the greenhouse and I do little with them, just potted on a couple of times and water on a rare occasion 😛

@gjones they really aren’t in a hurry 🤣 and one is far less speedy than the others too! They have got bigger and a lot taller, I’ll post another view tomorrow 😊 they do seem to be enjoying the greenhouse so hope they’ll get even bigger by summers end 🤞🏻 Look forward to seeing yours 😁

@gjones little progress update: have 4 now 😁 and they all have a fluffy spike 😅 2 red like the top one, a bright green one like the top one, and a 3-pointed one at the bottom. Can’t wait to see what they turn into but should at least have 2 different types ☺️ how are yours doing?

@gjones that’s not a bad germination rate! Think I only got 4 from 25 seeds 🙈 I thought so too! Wasn’t expecting their needles already 😜 looking forward to seeing yours 😁

@gjones funny you should say that, I just checked on them and there’s a new member of the family today 😂 I will definitely keep the tray for a while, read before that some seeds can take over a year to germinate 😜

Hopefully, they will bulk up over spring and summer 😊

comment

@gjones I do! These look to me like they’ve not moved in weeks! Must be a typical behaviour, maybe needing more heat before they take off again
