I'm on the #collage hype. This is the cacti seedlings in the slow cooker lid. I'm hoping to buy some horticulture grit over the next few months, as the sand is settling, voids are being made in the surface. Hoping to find a small bag as I don't need much, so any recommended websites is appreciated #cacti #cactus #cactigarden

Youve inspired me with the cacti. I've overlooked the family for so long. I never even dreamed about the propagation it's one of those things you don't think about. Congratulations on them I imagine them to be a life long addition to your family the baby's of 2016 👍👍😃

@kyleleonard . I recently bought some succulent seeds but have yet to sow them. Any tips? How long did it take for these to grow?

3w
comment
kyleleonard

@susanryderpaget - this is after maybe 6 months. They grow very slow apparently. I bought some more seeds which I'll show in the next few weeks to add to this next year. I used a potting mix of cacti/succulent compost, bought a bag of it off eBay for around £6. I would recommend sowing them in compost but covered, i use one of those trays which you can put a lid over with the vent, only a few quid for the pair.

Thanks Kyle, I keep putting off sowing them as they seem pretty complicated , but I'll definitely give them a go soon 😊

Potting up my survivors - using a cacti/succulent sandy mixture. They'll be put in a propagator now to try and keep them nice and warm. I have 6 which are growing well, these are placed in the two pots of 3 cacti, the ones I'm not too confident about are in their own pot, think there's about 6 in that pot 🌵 some of them are starting to show colour now, one has a slight redness to it now. I'll keep them updated over the next year or so!

Seeds can take years to look anything like the ones we can buy in shops which I never knew until the slow cooker lid garden which were sown about February/March and they're under half an inch tall... I've never done leaf cuttings but I did receive a Dwarf Jade cutting off someone and it took them quite a few months to root it ready to send me (also in my plant list) @Spudicus

3w
comment
Spudicus

Thanks @kyleleonard umm not looking good I bought some little plants at the garden for £2 each some of which we could split that might be the best way?? I've taken a few cuttings from my own jade plant last week but as you say takes time! Was hoping to do something in time for Christmas with the kids and had thought how exciting for them to see things grow from just leaves lol maybe for summer sale though hehehe
