    Early Christmas Present

    This is our problem with presents. If we want something we tend to buy it at that time which makes present buying a bit of a challenge

    Repotting cacti

    I use lengths of folded kitchen roll and as was said above, have the hole ready. Trying to get compost around the base of a prickly plant in a small pot isn't much fun:rolleyespink:

    Unidentified Prickly Friends

    No.3 looks rather like a Parodia species to me - maybeThe one near the window looks like a slightly small, very light depleted Echeveria agavoides. Very, very cold hardy if it is.
