Putting plants in some way in their natural environment can give great pleassure.

Because some of the Mammillaria's and Escobaria's keep pretty small, they are well suited for mini landscaping.

In this video the art of cactus mini landscaping is demonstrated. It shows some exmples at the end including Mammillaria lasiacantha and Escobaria minima.

Is anyone doing this 'at home' ?

You can find the video over here:

Punker, just great. They are small works of art.

Like your rock garden as well. How cold does it get at your place and do you cover during the winter?

Hi!

Thank's Ruudt!!!

The plants from the rockgarden are not cover in winter, in a morning (winter of 2010) was - 30 celsius, all the plants survived.

In that year was frequently - 15 ---- - 20, and one day when the winter start was rain and then frezeing in the night Sad

Some photos:



All the plants are alive

This is my favorite:



Sure in spring beautiful lemon like flowers Very Happy

My rockgarden is:

1.South orientation
2.Mineral substrate
3.Tall 40 cm above the ground

I never whater them!!!...i don't do nothing for them just the first 3 rules (South, mineral, Tall 40 cm above the ground), the plants stai outside from the second year from seed and the Opuntia is from cutings.

I have Echinocereus, Escobaria and a lot of Opuntia locations

Regards!

Punker

p.s: Tomorow i will show some pictures with the litlle plants from the rockgarden (just 2 years and 1 year !!!...sure they will survive in their natural habitat is much harder

They plants look very healthy. I tried some escobaria vivipara plants outside, but the spines turn from white into grey (dirty rain?).
I am curious about next pictures

I think this is a normal thing, my E. vivipara today...you see the new grouth, in spring the new color will change:



Echinocereus reichenbachii...same plants you see in flower in this topic...



This year was rainy from April to July...the mature plants don't have a drop of water (just the seedlings),...only te first spring rains

Some Seedlings - 1 to 2,5 years...Escobaria missouriensis(first 2 photos),Echinocereus reichenbachii,Echinocereus viridiflorus...first year outside, i will come with more photos in winter.



Regards!

Very nice, these seedlings. The Escobaria missouriensis can take different forms. I like for example Escobaria missouriensis var. navajoensis RP33. Stays very tiny and compact.

kind regards
