Moving indoor started cacti outdoors.....
    #4399127 - 07/13/05 11:05 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I have about 25 or so Peruvian Tourch seedlings (all about 2 inches tall) that are in the process of being transplanted into seperate containers....

I would like to move them outside into full sunlight.....I have done this with my bigger(two feet and up) Pedros every year...and they end up looking a bit burnt for a week or so but always recover and then really get growing....

Should I put the little guys in a shady spot first to acclimate them? If not, and they 'burn' will this adversely effect their growth?

..............

"MAN! You know there aint no such thing as left over crack!"

Yes on both questions!

Never move your cacti into direct sunlight directly if they come from inside, especially not if their only seedlings! Let them aclimatize slowly over at least a week or two, giving them a little bit more sunlight every two days or so. Water frequently. At least this is what I do, and mine don't get burned anymore...
