    Aloe polyphylla

    I had to google that Puya - spectacular! I'm growing Puya coerulea var. violacea and P.mirabilis. They germinate easily but seem to take ages to get going. Then suddenly they're off.

    Dying Cactus [Solved]

    It's recovering, I told her everything you said and she has been just watering at the sides of the pot and letting it sort of soak across or whatever the technical term is. Wahoo! Thanks all.

    Cacti seeds.

    I've planted them this year in J Arthur Bower’s cactus compost. I see plants like it. Before I used 100% peat based compost plus sand. And the covering - stones from the seashore.

    35F as a nightime minimum? If so, I'm sure you could grow many types of Opuntia, just avoid the ones that come from the tropics.
