Cacti
    #1605609 - 06/03/03 07:13 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I have 3 month old san pedros, peyotes, and peruvians :smile:
They are still covered with saran wrap. One of the peyote was destroyed from some white web :frown: It was the green and most fresh one, the other are kinda green/brown. If I take the saran wrap off, the soil soon gets dry and I think my cacti dont like that. At the other side they should get used ( little by little ) to live without saran wrap right :smile: My question is how to do that.
I keep them behind a window at a bright place with 1 hour direct sunlight :laugh: Should I move them at a place with direct sunlight ?
YOu see my situation, any help and and comments is welcome :smile: Peace

You will have to ween them off high humituy try this cover your plants up as you usalily do and poke a hole into the wrap with a tooth pick and each day poke one more hole.

For most plants it takes about 2 weeks for the change to go smoothly.

Wow 3 months! Good job man :smile:

I dont get this keeping them humid though....not saying your right or wrong to do this.....but in their natural habitat they do not get this treatment.....

The last cacti I grew from seed(t. peruvianus) were taken out of the humidity tent a week or so after most of the seed sprouted....They were not put into direct/close to direct light for at least 3 months(they were on the 'outskirts' of a 400w hps though)....and the soil shouldnt be allowed to dry out for that long......After that, they should be almost an inch or more tall and shouldn;t need any babying

Remember they are desert plants and tough little buggers at that :smile:

My 1 cent...

i think we started our cacti at the same time. i started them in small tuperwears with holes on the bottem. after they sprouted, i poked four holes in the lid, one in each corner. every week i just expanded those and added new ones. then they were able to survive without the lid at all. i only had to botttom feed h20 mabey three times so far. i just place in a dish of water and they soak it right up. they are doing great..the hardest part now is waiting a year to transplant them!
