My 1997 Succseed Seed List

I shared this first purchase with a colleague. The seeds were from SuccSeed. I wasn't quite good with my seed-growing skills yet, but I couldn't wait any longer due to cactus fever. The germination rate was good -- what was lacking was my skills in caring for seedlings. After about 4 years, I still have a few of them. Well, at least a few survived...

My share of the seed cost (we split each packet 50-50) was RM31.50.

1 Acanthocalycium glaucum
17 Astrophytum ornatum
29 Cleistocactus strausii
50 Coryphantha sulcata
58 Echinocactus grusonii
60 Echinocactus platyacanthus
77 Echinocereus fendleri var. rectispinus
103 Echinocereus stramineus
182 Ferocactus pilosus
185 Ferocactus viridescens
228 Gymnocalycium bayrianum
269 Gymnocalycium piltziorum
272 Gymnocalycium quehlianum
279 Gymnocalycium schatzlianum
345 Lobivia ferox var. longispina
380 Lobivia haematantha var. rebutioides
506 Mammillaria pilcayensis
530 Matucana madisoniorum
723 Parodia nivosa
824 Rebutia minuscula
872 Rebutia pygmaea 'haagei'
889 Rebutia pygmaea var. minor
899 Rebutia senilis

As you can see, we picked quite a few nice-looking and popular species. My Rebutia picks were a disaster; I was no good at growing Rebutias. Links to pictures of the seedlings and notes on their progress can be found on the main page on seeds.
