A bud from today - tomorrow it should be a flower.

Yes Arjen, space is a problem. Up to now it was solved by moving in more tables to put them on but now it is getting tight. :oops:
Maybe I´ll put some more of the older plants (Of Austrocactus or Pterocactus) out in a non heated place in winter :shock: . Maybe I should give away more plants (in fact I already started doing that) :mrgreen:

Here are some pictures of today

Cool turbs. I also see how your prediction on the Cintia was correct! I also like how the fruits from previous flowers are still on with more flowers blooming at the same time(bit confusing there)!

Yes thats last years fruits on the E. simulans. I tend to leave everything on the plant like it is first to see what it does for the overall picture. Most of the times I remove some/all of the old flowers /fruits if it looks too untidy and take a picture of the clean plant afterwards.

I found it interesting if the flower will be able to splitt the atached fruits by opening- doesn´t look like it so far. - But there are more flowers to come...

Beautiful plants and flowers as always, Jens!
It's good to see that spring finally reaches you.
Your pictures look much better than mine, great job. =D> :wink:

Thanks Ralf, Arjen and Mughal,
@Ralf: I don´t think my pictures look better than yours though - I´m just imitating your method after all.

Very Nice :)

Really like the way you have your GH setup. When your watering the top shelf, does the water fall through to the bottom level, or do you have some kind of plumbing that collects the runoff?

I'm working on my design for shelving for my "future" GH and am curious.

Hello Jens,
your pictures are just marvellous! I even went back to your thread, just to take yet another look at that beautiful Mammillaria perezdelarosae in bloom. That cactus just looks so neat with all these orderly arranged lateral spines and those brown evenly spaced fish hook spines. :)

Thank you all so much for the positive coments.
@sharpey: The water used to run off the tables after watering as long as I put the pots on the bare tables. It wasn´t good for the lower tables to have water runnning down so often-so I decided to put all the plants in flat plastic containers that will hold the water. (I think Ralf uses the same ones :) )
You can also move the plants easier if they are put in a kind of rigid container like that.
