Tuesday Cactus Update!

So today, I finally got around to transplating some of them cactus.
The two I worked on today, the carnegiea gigantea or Saguaro, and the eulychina breviflora, were both started from seeds about a year and two months ago.
Watching grass grow provides more entertainment.
Anyways, the eulychina breviflora:

These thingys ranged from little finger tipped to really small in size.
They were getting all bunched up in the little pot and were a bit difficult to separate.
The squad:

The Saguaro were all lined up, sort of like they were ready for inspection:

I expect next year, they'll look exactly the same.
I got a platoon of them:

I had so many of them, I ran out of smaller plastic thingys so I had to double and triple some of them up in larger pots.
I also took the time to transplant some other cactus that were getting too big for their britches.
I figure if half of them make it, I'll be doing okay:

That round one is my opuntia.
Boy, I can't wait for that to get larger!

I also went and broke out the FTSAE and got a few stragglers that were hiding behind some leaves.
Believe it or not, I also managed to get me a few oranges:

I'm not supposed to eat oranges cause they're like high in potassium or something, but I couldn't resist:

It was ono(delicious, also a fish commonly called wahoo).
I stuck some in the fridge so they'll be all cold when I come back from my rides.
Oh yeah!
I also got me some PPEDs, plant performance enhancing drugs:

Soon, very soon, my Cactus Army will take over the world!
Or at least my lanai.
Or something.

JRA, actually potting soil.
Which feels a lot like sawdust.

johnnytrashbike, the supplements have been approved by the World Cactus Anti Doping Association(WCADA).
