    So glad I found your video! I just got my very first cactus, a Gymnocalycium Stenopleurum (I found that out only by quite a bit of research). Met him at the garden center thanks to his glorious little pink flower! As a complete newbie this video was the most helpful I've found out of the tons I've watched lately!! Could I ask you some quick questions?!

    How much sunlight (direct or indirect) do Gymnocalycium's really love? Right now I've got him by a Southwest facing window that gets nice direct morning sun and then indirect afternoon light, and I like to open the window often. Will he be happy in these conditions?

    And how often can I expect him to flower with the proper care? His flower died off not long after I had him home and I was afraid it was my fault, but I didn't know how long it would have lasted anyway. Do the flowers typically only last a few days in full bloom? Will I have to wait until next season or is there a chance he may yet sprout another this summer?

    Hi 87 walker; really enjoy your informative videos. Also the collection containing some of my favs. A question: how do you treat cacti with a split? I have several Trichos with that issue. Also, being a musician i cannot "squeeze" my plants to test for water due to thorns. I use a meter but you suggest visual exam as well. I`ll give that a try. I have 117 music vids on You Tube, the most recent being "Bob Dylan & Joe Seddon-Hurricane Carter." Next comes some cactus videos. Australia is fantastic, the wildlife awesome. I`ve bred Womas and Jungle pythons which are quite rare here in the United States. I`ll check back for your advice on splitting. Best to you mate, Joe Seddon

    Good info, I don’t have a lot of Cacti and I’m always worried about how much water.

    Great videos! I subbed with notifications! One thing I noticed though is you said bi-weekly is twice per week for you. Some people may be confused as generally bi-weekly means every other week, once per 2 weeks. So your bi-weekly watering would be 4 times in a 2 week period, where as someone watching would normally take bi-weekly as meaning once per two weeks. That could be a significant difference in watering frequency. Awesome collection by the way! I'm up to about 30 different varieties in my collection currently.

    Hey beautiful collection! Thanks for the tips.
    I'm also an aspiring cacti collector in Aus. Would you sell any lophophora seedlings/cuttings at all. Ive found it hard to find. Was going to try to graft a few.
    Cheers!
