Another sweltering day in the tunnel. That bench I built a couple of weeks back is already completely full, the frame of the next one can be seen beyond it.

Very many plants repotted and rationalised over the last few weeks.
Here's some nice frailea buenekeri densispina, with big fat taproots.

Some L. haematantha LF62, surrounded by a mess of Notocactus schlosseri. I sowed a single seedpod of the latter and am now drowning in them, slightly regretting it.

Thelocephala napina and esmereldana, I find I lose these unless I'm very careful about watering in the first two years, so now I torture them by keeping them in small pots and treating them mean, hence the square roots.

More to follow soon.

To those who've kindly emailed re: sales - very nearly ready to go, I'm filling the website with plants gradually and will launch soon, watch this space.
