Awesome!

How far along are your seedlings? They look a bit older than mine. Here's a picture. You can see the elder hikuri (complete with kitten claw mark -- for that, the kitten earned a profile on craigslist classifieds!) and their offspring planted around them. I'm not sure if mine are growing really slowly, or if they're just young, so I'm curious to know how old yours are. My guess: 4-6 months.

Pictures are awesome, so are those lophs. :smile:

How old and are they grown under lights or the good ol' sun?

Interesting..! I've been starving some of my peyote pups of light, I guess, so no wonder yours are so plump. I figured that because the old  ones seem happy with natural light, so should the young ones. Apparently not -- yours have grown more rapidly.

Your second photo prompted me to research Sceletium tortuosum, and I'm intrigued. Sounds like 100% chewable goodness.

I'm also curious about what sort of fertilizer regime you use. It won't be long before you transplant the lophs to a deeper pot, by the looks of it! Nice going...

It is good to hear that Sceletium tortuosum is easy to start from seed as I have recently ordered some seed of my own..... Thanks for the fertilization advice as well

Amylase,

Thanks for the tips. I'll try to replicate your procedure when I come into some kanna seeds. Also, your fertilizing strength (75%) is similar to mine -- about 66% of 2-7-7 -- although I seem to be overwatering. Certainly I've always let the elder peyotes go long periods between waterings, a month sometimes, and they've doubled in three years, but I'm pleasantly surprised by your results with such fast-growing seedlings on only twice-monthly watering.

Glad you liked the pot! I have a few crystals and stones in there to help with the resonance of the sacred cactus... what Rupert Sheldrake calls the "field of morphic resonance" in his New Science of Life, and other books. ; )

Here's another shot. The pot was $25 at a box store; you'll also see shark jaws from El Salvador (hoping not to offend shark-lovers, like me); a fabric of the ayahuasquero Shipibo tribe of Peru; a colourful belt from the Oaxaca highlands, and an eagle feather and fungus from home... All things that make me smile, and bring back memories of visions.



PS the main taproots on those cacti are about a foot long, like a fat carrot.
