My obsession with cacti and succulents hasn't wavered and I'm struggling to get my hands on some of the rarities I desire. Here are a few of my mates.
Are there any Perth/WA members here that can recommend good/secret suppliers in WA? I've got a few good spots but I'm always looking for more with a particular interest in the rare and exotic.
I'm also after some large and healthy cacti for my pool area. I have large San Pedro and would like some blue variety as well as another large Candelabra and a Saguaro if possible.
Got these beauties - add "Dragon tree obsession" to the list too now 🤣
Wow, I hope you don't have children around your home.
A few months ago A Current Affair did a segment on "plants that kill our children" and Yukkas were top of the list.
I admire your love of succulents, I know they can be very pretty when in flower.
But please be careful if children are around.
And woke up to this lovely flower. About 15 others on this specimen so will share when they're all in bloom.
Also picked up a nice sized Blue Barrel. In the process of finding him the right pot.
This beauty just keeps on flowering. Another 9 in total and managed to capture these 4 in simultaneous bloom.
Nice Crest cacti which my kids have named "Cuddles"
Some progress shots of my beloved cacti showing some pretty serious growth in less than a year.
The second two have been brewing in their pots, ready for my cacti feature garden in my pool area. I've done one side with long lying succulents and one end of the pool will have some tall and rare cacti on show.
Approx 70mm plus a new arm
Approx 250mm with decent gains on its arms.
About 2000mm of cumulative growths with new arms and plenty of health coming out of this cowboy.
My latest San Pedro cuttings. Very healthy. 3m worth of cuttings with girth averaging 270mm, peaking around 350mm.
Some great progress there @ProjectPete!
You've got me rummaging around my garden beds pulling out all my cacti to create a little garden. I'm a big fan of how easily cacti propagate and I think I'll look at purchasing some more varieties. The only issue I have is little hands in the garden, I'll have to isolate them from my daughter.
Many thanks for the update.
My dragon tree is branching out finally. I feel like a proud parent!
please tell me you found some secret suppliers. We are obsessed and recently ripped apart our entire front yard to restart with a drought friendly cacti/succulent garden. We live on half an acre so have plenty of room for these beauties but are struggling to find decent sized mature varieties also. please if you have any secret contacts it would be greatly appreciated. we have had some luck on marketplace and the cactus grower in henley brook but other than that have struggled. thanks.
Also a few of our babies. we have a lot more. feel free to follow our obsession on insta: cactopia&crew
