Gardening is like cooking. To improve, you need to be willing to make mistakes and experiment. Also, common names are garbage. Zone 9b, West Sac, CA.

Echinopsis oxygona syn. Echinopsis eyriesii, Echinopsis multiplex, Echinopsis tubiflora

I finally got around to repotting these guys. (Swipe left to see how cramped they were.) This terra cotta planter--which I got for free--is approx. 8 1/2" x 20"; 7 1/2" deep. The entire thing is heavy af.

Nice to hear your #upcycle free planters too. Am jist repurposing the fly tippers stuff. Most is useful but alot goes into the recycling bins and rubbish.

In July, I got this #Echinopsis quartet for $4. They were in a clay bowl (Hecho en Mexico) that had no drainage hole and had been sitting in mud. I rehomed them into this planter--one of two that had been dumped in the bushes by the Dublin, CA apartment I used to live in. #succulents #hedgehogcactus #seaurchincactus #Easterlilycactus
