I always dont know if i have a big collection or not and i want to compare it to the size of others ... im 13 years old and am CRAZY about cacti i . spend about 30 hours of week caring for and admiring them (while still getting good grades in school :P) and in the span of about 4 years i have obtained about 650 (just counted right now) most of them are still smallish but they will grow :) ... so how big is your collection?

Are you doing any planned cross breeding. That is a large collection. Congratulations. I only have about 150 C&S, but then cactus is not my only interest. I keep a vegetable, a wildflower garden and I am restoring 17 acres of wild land from its overgrazed and cedar choked state.

RE: How many cacti are in your collection?

I'm not a fan of spikes, needles, or anything that can poke me. But I did receive a small cactus as a gift about 30 years ago. Last year I found it had a baby growing near it, and this year I found another baby. So I now have three cacti.

Where do you live? Can you post a photo of your collection?
