What a Find


By cmsue


I think this is the find of the century, £5.00 plus postage, off e bay, all the way from Poland.

30 of the little baby Cactus.

And 200 different seeds

They are so cute, most only 1"-2"tall.

So to put them in there new homes and to bed, they came all the way Poland, so they were exhausted. Bless

Unfortunatly 3 had to go to hospital, fingers crossed

Fantastic! Did they come with names or have you been clever enough to identify them? I see you have a couple of astrophytums - when I was a cactus addict in my late teens I always wanted one of those and never got one.
I hope they give you lots of pleasure.

What was wrong with hospitalised ones? The two pink ones look OK, unless the roots were damaged.

Hope you are an eBay fan, Hywel!
Did you get told what the various seeds were, Sue?

No they were just mixed cactus seeds, The one's in the hospital had little or know root, will keep you all posted how they are doing.

You,ll have to learn Polish to make them feel at home....
They were packed better than some of the big catalogue companies seedlings

Weren't they given a lot of TLC in their packaging? ... Well done on such a bargain ... and here's hoping the 'patients' recover well! ... :o)
