Why not, seedlings can be challenging to take a good shot of but if you get one they can look amazing.

Ok, let's hope I got this right as these will be the first pictures that I have posted here.
A close up of 2 of the Turb seedlings I planted about 2 weeks ago.

Thanks for that trigonus II. I like them they are small growing and flower early so don't take up much room and you get satisfaction with flowers at a young age. Some can be a little tricky but most are fairly easy to grow. More pics to come anyone with there own pics put them up to show the more the better. Very Happy

Which ones would you consider the easiest to grow? Also which do you consider to be the most difficult?

I have a few and would love to see them clumping as I have seen them in some pics (only certain species), I wonder how long that will take? If ever. In John Pilbeam & Bill Weightman's Ariocarpus et cetera, there are some pics of excellent clumps of 30y.o plants, be good to see mine do that. Sounds like it's going to be a bit of a wait though haha!

Alonso is one that comes to mind i get them to thumb nail size then seem to lose them. There are a couple others though. The easier ones i find are polaskii, schwarzii, lophophoroides in fact most are easy the thing i find is don't over pot them and don't over water them they are quite tough. As some following photos will show some little seedlings growing in the pots of their parents quite cute i think. Now that shows how easy they can be.

Forgot to also mention that yes they are slow but not always as slow as you think nice size plants can be achieved in around 8 years from seed. What i love is the transformation from seedling to juvenile to adult i will show a pic later of what i mean plants look totally different through these stages. You get to really understand the plant when you observe the changes over time. Some plants i am still to grow from seed successfully so i look forward to the challenge.

Very nice! Interesting that you say that lophophoroides is amongst the easier to cultivate. Have read many accounts of people struggling to cultivate this species.

What sort of mix do you pot them into? In the pics it looks like just course sand, but am guessing that that is just a dressing?
