infiniteohmsJuly 19, 2011

I now have 6 species of opuntia established and overwintering (thanks to people who traded with me is response to my last want post on this forum), i'd love to get some other cacti that will withstand a cold / wet winter. cylindropuntia and escobaria species come to mind, i grew some escobaria leei, but they are still tiny seedlings, so i have yet to set them out.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

have you considered adding various cacti that you can grow indoors during the winter when they "rest"? i did this when living in ohio and simply placed them in a position that gives them ample light during their "resting period". never lost a cactus plant and i still do the same since moving to south carolina and have yet to lose a plant. have a few to trade if you are interested. jeff
