Wow, they look great. I wish I had an Onzuka of some sort. I don't often encounter them here in Sydney, are they difficult to grow?

Thanks! They are not difficult if they are grafted, a bit slow if on own roots. More white are them, less fast they grow.

Lovely!

Hi guys! Glad to have you join up.

There must be something about the initials "C & D" that makes for skilled cactus growing. :lol:

We have another "C & D" (Craig & Denise) here where you can see lots of amazing cactus too:

Of your pictures, I really like that second one. Neat star pattern. It must have been watching the Stapeliads bloom and got inspired. :wink:
