A short photo-shoot of 2012's seedlings

Hello again! Here's a short photo-shoot of last year's seedlings, taken with our new camera; a Nikon D5100. This is the first time that I'm working with such an advanced (yeah I know, there are much more complicated ones around) camera, so I'm still learning. One day I'll buy myself a macro lens to make even better close-ups!

Back to cacti! So... What have I sown last year? Well, I'm about to show that to you right now! First I'll add an index about last year's sowing:


  1.  The beginning, sown at 1-4-2012 and one week later.
  2. 15-4-2012, 2 weeks old.
  3. 22-4-2012, 3 weeks old.
  4. 29-4-2012, quite the same.
  5. 20-5-2012, 7 weeks old.
  6. 17-6-2012, 11 weeks old.
  7. 20-5-2013, more than 1 year old.
And here are the pics:

Lophophora williamsii caespitosa

Epithelantha bokei

Frailea asterioides 'castanea'

Browningia candelaris

Pachycereus pringlei

Pilosocereus gounellei

Echinopsis candicans

Selenicereus grandiflorus

Selenicereus hondurensis

I´m planning to keep at least two of each, so I've already started to give away some of them. Especially the two Selenicereus species... I need to get rid of them! Check them out, each branch can reach a couple of meters in length. Wish me good luck (as I´ll wish you when I give you one!)!

Wonnebald (Wonnie!)
And how can I not post a photo of our latest family member, Wonnebald?! He's doing fine and he's liking it over here. Much better than on the street, where they've found him all alone while it was almost freezing...

See ya next time and hopefully with some more (and better taken!) photos!
