No, dont worry..I was just whinging about my experience, as I've lost a couple recently.
Including one of Stuart's seedlings.. :curses:

I've now gone down the no soil route as I have my Agavoides collection outside.
Now I worry about if I should water them :lol:

I must post some pictures soon of the Agavoides, as they are coloring up nicely

Hi,
At that point I would have gave it the chop and re-rooted it, in a fresh pot, as someone said the old stem may have thrown up some offsets.

I did give the stem a little trim, and repotted it in some sandy compost. This is it now :)

I would love to keep my cacti & succulents outside but it's much too cold in where I live. We only get strong sunshine and heat for 2 days at a time. The rest of the time it's too cold, I think.

What do you pot yours is now? I would love to have a rockery :smile:
