2020 Sowing Part 8 - Results after ten months

Hello all! I haven't been loyal with my updates lately, but here it is! The reason is probably my little baby girl. Yeah, I should add another one to the list below, but that might be a bit inappropriate and would take my overall succession rate down haha. Anyway, it's a bit harder to make time for hobbies, but in my belief, they're very important. Not as important as family, but they should not be neglected.

So, what has happened (or what didn't)?

Why do I keep writing a blog? It's 2021, no one reads a blog anymore, right? Well, you do. And for me, it's a way to keep a logbook. It's also nice for those who are looking for information on certain species and growing methods. Once in a while, I receive a message from someone who finds one of my articles helpful, and that's why I share! A blog is, in my opinion, way more organized than a YouTube channel (imagine a YouTube channel about plants!). 

Acanthocalycium thionanthum

A. thionanthum had a succesion rate of 5%, but the ones that popped up are still there.

Lophophora fricii

Still going strong.

Lophophora williamsii

The best results till now: 45%.

Monilaria moniliformis

I'm happy that at least some have survived till now. This is a winter-grower. The others have died because they simply weren't big enough. If the last four survive this winter, they'll probably make it.

Sulcorebutia arenacea

Still elongated. No idea why, but let's see what will happen later on.

Trichocereus pascana

The light-green color worries me a little. Not enough sun? Do they need fertilizer? Right now they're on a sunnier spot and I gave them something to eat. Let's see what happens.

Trichocereus peruvianus

They seem healthy to me. When these Peruvian torches are big enough, they'll grow about 30 - 40 cm a year.

The End

I don't have enough time to write much more than I already did. My kids are calling me and... Well, I do have more hobbies than cacti and other succulents. I might share something of that later on.
