Parodia leninghausii / Golden ball cactus

Parodia magnifica / Balloon cactus

The crepe myrtle is littering blooms upon everything below it, and this Parodia bloom was difficult to spot last evening. Today, though, it is unmistakeable.

The Sedum morganianum was getting awfully leggy, so I wrapped it up into a nice mound - let’s see what results.

randomc: here is another update for you. I had to keep the one that was meant for kihaku-gato due to shipping restrictions, but I’ll take real good care of it ;)

Hi, I just recently started following you and so far I love your blog. Would you mind helping me with this? I have a succulent (I do not know what kind) and red shamrock in a pot together (I just recently re-potted them) and for the longest time the succulent has been tipping over and I am worried about it breaking. I was wondering if there is something I could do about this or if I should just stick something for it to lean on in the pot.

Asked by energizedcolorwart

Depending on the succulent, you could consider cutting it down, letting it scar over, and reroot it. If you don’t want to do that, you could use a rock I suppose.

But I am concerned in the long term a planter with a succulent and a water-loving shamrock could be as incompatible as … say … me and … ke$ha. Loving one would kill the other.

Hi cactguy, you sell cacti to make some income on the side right? I would like to know how you started and how it all works because I'm really interested in exploiting this idea myself. Thanks!

Asked by dalisshadow

Without giving away to much, I loosely look for something currently in the market and either (1) make it better (2) make it more cheaply or (3) make it my own. Of course, I also get unique ideas and try them out. Last fall I did planted pumpkins - and it was a one-time trial, but I continue to buy and make toy dino planters and plant coffee cups because they continue to sell.

In terms of the business side, I use tumblr (botanicality.tumblr.com), my personal FB, personal contacts, business cards, Etsy, and Square to run and promote my business. It allows me to put more time in when I can and to back off when life is more pressing.

Also, for my business, it is also far more profitable to buy and resell plants rather than growing my own.
