Re: Getting rapid growth with Echinopsis hybrids (and others)

I wouldn't dream of pricking these out at this age. If you think they are too close together, it's a trade-off. Do you pull them out and seriously risk damaging all their roots, killing them off? Or do you leave them, and let the stronger seedlings win against their weaker brethren resulting in the...

There is a members only part of the forum? I missed that.
Forum members logged in as 'Registered guest' don't have access to as many of the sub-Forums as 'BCSS Member'. That's all.
Thanks Tony (tu) I would not want to be missing out :)
I am though! :sad: :lol:

Re: Getting rapid growth with Echinopsis hybrids (and others)

The other thing I meant to ask about was pricking out / repotting. This is what they currently look like, around a month after sowing. IMG_20200112_155650.jpg I've definitely sown them too thickly / unevenly to leave them in these pots for too long. But, with looking for the most rapid growth, am I ...

Re: Schlumbergera: repotted

Just to add to my posts above, my repotted plant is doing well and growing new flower buds so it didn't seem to mind at all.

Re: Getting rapid growth with Echinopsis hybrids (and others)

Thanks Terry, Ralph and Esp. I am already experimenting a bit this winter with some small Echinopsis plants in the warm conservatory (my office at work) to see how they do. The light in there is very good - I've got an Aeonium 'Zwartkop' in there at the moment that is blacker than I can get them out...

Getting rapid growth with Echinopsis hybrids (and others)

I am wondering what is the most time efficient way to get cactus seedlings to flower? I am looking at raising some hybrid Echinopsis with a few to trying some of my own crosses combining a few different lines. From reading around, the standard approach seems to be to sow them about now then give the...

Re: Access to members forum

I applied several days ago for members forum posting rights, but my application seems to be stuck in pending. I messaged Bill as forum admin a couple of days ago but my message is still flagged as unread. Can anyone else help, please? I'm in the same boat. Think I filled in the application properly...
