Welcome, Brad. :D If you're experienced dealing the the sickies & cast-offs :( , then you' ll find ALL the info you ever dreamed of on "how to do it right". Or @ least what's "out there" -- for any goals or direction, or sharing "been there, done that!.
Once bitten by the cactus collecting/growing bug, there is no known cure!
There's no 12 step programme for I shall just have to get some more!!

Hello Brad,
welcome to the cactus forum.
I understand your dilemma of trying to keep every plant (sucker, offset, seedling, etc.) alive. The only problem is, you will eventually run out of space. :)
I hope, that you will enjoy our company.
