Thanks Klahanie. Yes I bought the cacti this morning to put in the glass bowl I have had for a long time. :o)

Imagine that was quite a fiddle to make HB. You have more patience than me! Looks great!

Hi Sheila, you have more patience than me too, but it looks very nice, not something I would have thought of in a million years, Derek.

What a clever idea. They look great in there!

Using the bacon tongues to ease them out of their pots and to position them saved a few prickles....:o) and it didn't hurt the plants.

That is lovely very artistic, and will give the plants a micro climate. You could pay pounds for that in a shop, it looks great

I was wondering how you got them in without getting prickled to bits Hb , what a good idea it looks great !

Thanks Teds and Amy, I'm glad you think it looks Ok. So long as the plants don't suffer I can enjoy them. ?

Nice. The one the left looks to be a hardy Opuntia. If it outgrows the indoors..it could adapt to the great outdoors!
The tall middle might be a Pilocereus..the Brazilian blue cacti. Tender,great pot plants though. And the barrel looks to be a Mammilaria sp. cacti..they clump and can live forever in a pot.
My best guesses.

Thanks Stan. I just chose them because I liked the shapes. I had no idea what type they were. :o)

great idea, lovely display. I gave up cacti when my vision started to go and the plants bit back more than usual! the book said to use a collar of cardboard to wrap round the plants, but tongs sound a lot easier, and you can get at them from all angles.

Lol Fran. :o)) It would have been difficult to lower plants into the bowl without catching the first ones using a collar of card or newspaper as is usually recommended. I didn't fancy spines stuck into the back of my hand. Lol.

grins, might be a new thing, cacus acupuncture!

:o)) I wonder what that would cure. Someone told me if you press on the soft area between your thumb and forefinger it eases headaches. When I've had a headache I haven't remembered to try it. Lol

I'll have to try that - wonder if it works bilatereally? I mean, headache on right, pinch right hand? and how long would one have to pinch for? *s* maybe a clothes peg would do the trick, at least it wouldn't tie up both hands

That looks so professional.....
