This is my long neglected etiolated Parodia magnifica I was ready to toss. Decided to throw it outside for the summer and just noticed today it was developing about a dozen babies just above the soil line. Can't toss it now...

Not only can you not toss it, but repotting is suggested, Christopher, a move that you and it will profit by.

You know it's crossed your mind.

RE: Popping Parodia

As it was going to be discarded by summer's end, it hadn't...Until now.


RE: Popping Parodia

Hi Christopher!!!

All I can say is " ouch". Use those thick gloves and let's see a pic when you repot.

Have tweezers? Lol!!!

I bet it will be smiling after the repot ...

Hope you are having a great summer!!! ;-)

Take care!!!


RE: Popping Parodia
