Echinocereus reichenbachii     6/11/21
I realized that I had no idea of about how many of the things I have. I did a rough estimate. It's about 1000. Most are in cells that have about one cubic inch (~16 cc) of soil. That's how I can have so many. There are 72 plants in a standard 10" X 20" (25 cm X 50 cm) nursery tray. The plants stay small and don't branch because of the "bonsai" effect of the tiny "pot." When transplanted to a bigger pot or into ground, they rapidly get bigger and branch at the base. Almost all those 1000 plants are around 6 years old.   (28/48)
