Re: Help collecting seeds!

I’ve opened quite a few if the pods and have this inside.
(This is the best pic I can get!).
I think I’ll dry them out and put them in some compost and see if I get anything!

Help collecting seeds!

Am I correct in thinking that these are seed pods?

If I collect them, should I dry them out before planting?

(And will the plant have self pollinated?)

Re: Poorly plant

After 4 years I think I can claim the plant is now back to full health! Thank you for your kind advice! I removed it from its winter cover yesterday and he has survived the winter well. It’s original problems were caused by my wife taking it to her work and having it in a desk in the middle of an of...

Re: Poorly plant

Another update.

Things are going well now! It is due a re-pot but I thought a final picture in this pot would be nice.

Even though it was at death's door it is remarkable what a bit of time can do....

Re: What is happening here?

Thanks for taking the time to reply Rod. Much appreciated.

I'll certainly leave it on and see what type of branch appears!

What is happening here?

I am a novice Cactus grower but really enjoy growing them from seed. Each year I'll get a pack of mixed seeds and see what I get! The cactus pictured below is about 7 or 8 years old and has just finished flowering. Can anyone tell me what the little growth on the side is or will be? Thanks Richard I...

Re: Poorly plant

Blimey...doesn't time fly. I can't believe I started this thread almost 2 years ago. The cactus is still alive and is slowly getting better. As mentioned below, I still don't know what I am doing but keep it dry and add some soil from my compost heap in the spring. I think it is going in the right d...

Re: Poorly plant

Thanks for the replies and advice. I've decided to leave him in the pot he is in as he has only been in it about a year and I am seeing signs of improvement. Additionally, life gets so busy that my cacti aren't always a priority! Cactus.jpg However, he is getting better. He is starting to straighten...

Re: Poorly plant

Hi Rod, Thanks for your thoughts. It has been in the pot about 6 months. I appreciate you saying the pot may be too big and I might reduce the pot size slightly when I come to re-pot it later in the year. Things have taken an interesting turn. I have been off on holiday for a couple of weeks with th...
