Fairy Castles' Mansion

Postby FairyCastles » Mon Sep 17, 2012 9:59 pm

Not quite a mansion but a growing collection :grin:
These photos were taken this weekend (except the "whole collection" one). I received 7 new cacti today and I may add their photos at some point but unfortunately ran out of light this evening. None of the photos have been editted except to resize, where needed, which you can probably see!

Firstly, we have some photos of the plants "in habitat"

And last but not least, studying as Fairy Castle cacti do:

My whole collection (please note, those in fancy pots are in there because their pots are smaller and I don't want to knock them over):

One last piece of advice from Jim:

See no cactus

Image

Hear no cactus

Image

Speak no cactus

Image

Buy no cactus and save money!

He didn't mean it! :lol:

By the way, no cacti or succulents were harmed in the making of these photos.
