Growing cacti from seed is easy and rewarding! It takes patience and a few guidelines to start cactus seeds.
This is a macro video demonstrating how to remove the fruit and harvest the seeds from a cactus (Species is Mammillaria Haageana). This variety does bear edible fruit known as Chilitos, and I did taste it afterwards! A bit underripe, sour, no distinct flavors just yet..but not unpleasant!
Note: This is shot with a macro lens- objects on screen are much smaller in real life 😉 Watch in full screen for a good time 😉
If you see little ants on your succulents and other plants, stop and follow them…many ant species will lead you straight to a pile of mealybugs before you even notice them on your plants!
Filmed under a macro lens and grow lights: Watch this quick demonstration on how to separate baby succulents from the main plant, including: Haworthia Fasciata ‘Zebra’ (0:17), Echeveria Prolifica (not pulidonis…) (01:44) and an Echeveria Lola. Also includes a ‘potting’ demo when we repot the Lola (08:45).

Demoing with an Echeveria Perle von Nurnberg –
The other day, I noticed a hole in a Graptoveria Fred Ives leaf that was in a small pot up on a shelf, on my screened-in porch. Even though it was rather high up, I looked for snails and didn’t see any. So I started to twist off the boo boo leaf when I felt something cold and soft– it was this darn caterpillar! An Armyworm Moth larva to be precise.
