My sowing diary.

Post by Pricky » Thu Nov 30, 2017 5:01 pm

I open this post to share my sowings.
I'm kinda bad at growing cacti and succulents from seeds. Hopefully this year I will be more successful. :D :D

I am particularly jealous of the Euphorbia obesa and Lophophora. Well done.

Today I re potted the Dioscoreas... they had no more space!
The biggest is larger than a 2 euro coins.
I hope they will keep growing as good after the repotting!
