Hello from Indio California

Post by cactusguy63 » Mon Nov 09, 2020 1:33 am

Hi All
I just recently moved from Los Angeles to Indio California. This is desert country. 110 degree heat during the day and 50 degree cold at night. I have been actively growing cactus for 25 years but really went crazy 2 years ago.
From 6 plants to over 200. Just looking to learn and share.

Welcome to the forum, Mike. The weather is a bit different here; 10 degrees C and foggy at the moment.

Welcome to the Forum Mike, you certainly have different growing conditions there. Look forward to seeing some photos of some of your plants sometime :welc:
