    This video is really quite dreamy and soothing with the plants and the
    music. I drifted away then! Big hug Sis <3?

    Wow, It is hard to believe that this is your first video. Your collection
    was and still is awesome to see! Oh, that’s a nice, slightly hairy
    Pilosocereus. Wow, it is so tall and it looks very happy! How do those
    flowers smell, haha? You have so many cool plants and videos. Now I’m
    just dizzy with the Wackys! Ah ha, at time 06:50, is that your mystery
    Stenocereus? That looks a lot like Stenocereus pruinosus. Yes,
    Stenocereus griesus and a few others are quite similar, but they generally
    don’t have spines that are so long and I have seen millions of cuttings.
    Here is a video that I found of them being used as a living fence, on a
    Caribbean island.

    What a great collection. If you are interested in any cacti art work, you
    should take a look at some of my cactus art I created in 2013. I hope you
    like it.

    I just started my cacti and succulent garden. I live in Key Largo and have
    grown tired of palm trees. This is very inspiring. Thank you?

    That hobby looks like it got quite out of hand. Awesome trichocereus and
    lophophora collection , hope mine grows to such a volume one day.?

    I saw many cactus plants in Gran Canaria, Greek island and The Caribbean.
    How do you grow cactus plants in Ireland? I thought they needed different
    soil and a warmer climate. What an amazing collection of plants. Great
    video, what camera are you using? The video quality is good. I really
    enjoyed this video and the collection of plants blew me away…. LOL LOL
    That cute little pooch at the end wiggling it’s tail, so cute. Give it a
    hug from me. I shot a video of daffodils and will post it on my channel
    soon. I’m studying videography, self taught. Plants such as yours are
    great to practice on. I’m going to visit Royal Botanic Kew Gardens, this
    year. Thanks again for sharing?

    Nice! You look like you know what you’re doing. I just got a cactus but i
    haven’t got a clue on what type it is. Could you watch a video i made and
    tell me what you think it is. If you do, i would appreciate it.

    Hi there Dominic 🙂 The Cacti at 4.00 is called an Ephiphyllum Rainforest
    cactus, although there are a few different varieties, I’m not sure what
    variety this one is. it is really easy to grow but unlike the desert cacti
    it likes to be kept slightly moist in the winter. it has amazing huge red
    flowers in the spring 🙂

  • heartfullofhappiness 5 years ago

    Thanks so much for your wonderful comment Ele and Ian 🙂 repotting a
    cactus is always a real dilemma haha!, I have found that the best way to
    repot a very spiny one is by wrapping the whole plant around in cardboard
    so you can get a hold of it and turn the pot upside down, the worst is
    using gloves as i have found out in the past haha! lay the cactus on its
    side and if the pot is plastic gently squeeze the pot to loosen the
    rootball but if the pot is crock I always find it easier to CONTINUED

  • heartfullofhappiness 5 years ago

    Thanks so much for your lovely comments 🙂

  • heartfullofhappiness 5 years ago

    Thanks so much, Cacti are hard to find here in Ireland, most of them I
    brought over from England, most of the Loph’s I got from tiny pups from
    Glastonbury in England, many years ago, Thanks for the proposal lol ! 🙂

  • Selfenquirer 5 years ago

    Oh my goodness, what an energizing tour! Thank you for sharing this garden
    of beauty. I’ve been hesitant to grow cacti in all our Seattle rain, but
    this inspires me. Even added another Jade plant 🙂 Before the
    conservatory, did you use grow lights? How did you ever manage to get
    enough sun for them? You are indeed a “Light Worker.” Love to you, Lyn!

    love and happiness from Ireland 🙂 XXXX

    Well done Dustin on your cacti rescues, they are wonderful, the Mammilaria
    is a beaut and very unusual 🙂 It always drives me nuts when I see the
    fake plastic and or tissue flowers they stick onto them with either glue or
    pins, I have managed to save a few of them in the past and they made a full
    recovery. At chrismas there was a garden centre here selling cacti that had
    horrible eyes and santa hats stuck on them it was horrible to see, it’s mad
    when they stick them on and the fake flowers don’t even resemble anything
    like the flowers they really form, LOL! Thanks for sharing your new
    additions with us Dustin 🙂 XXXXX?

  • featheredfan 5 years ago

    That’s it yes, Bird’s-Nest Pincushion is the common name and this is a
    subspecies of Mammillaria decipiens called camptotricha. Do you know the
    name of the Echinopsis? Thanks?

  • herby herb 5 years ago

    I like that you’re rescuing cacti. That’s awesome! I wish they didn’t
    glue those flowers on either. ?
