Oh jolly good, one of the Aloe polyphylla seeds has hatched. It won't be long now before the others start to peek out from the soil/perlite mix. The rainwater has been really good for the germination.
The succulent leaf I picked off the garden centre floor last week also started to root out and putting out a pup
OK, I have to admit I kind of went a bit nuts picking up shed succulent leaves at the cactus section. Even some discarded cactus pups. Will need to get a proper succulent pot soon
Gizmo is looking like it's going to put out a central cactus stalk soon!
|About 5mm long. Mr Frodo took a long time coming|
|Didn't take long. Only about a week or so.|
|Yes, that is a purple cactus at the back in the clear plastic container.|
