    Your mix is probably still too rich. I would work in some chunky perlite or if it is in the ground some chunky crushed granite or pea gravel. I would get a mounnd going with potshards and rocks under your dirt . A good diagram is posted on Yacadoo site. Mine is in 2o% organic - 80% inorganic, I get my cactus at C & S sales , local good nurseries, garage sales. I have heard good things abaot Mesagarden and Miles2go

    Have you raised any Echinocereus triglochidiatus. I purched two from Cactus King in Houston and both seem to have developed a basal crown rot, but still fairly much alve although cosmetically inferior. I planted them in my faitly sandy soil garden a week before a five inch tropical storm rain. I removed them from my area that recieves a mild sprinkler irrigation and transplanted into a 50 sand 50 miracle grow cactus soil that is well drained and only recieves rain. The horse crippler I planted the same time is doing well. Can you reccomend a good source for Texan native cacti??

    thanks in advance Bobby Z

    Hi Marasri...I see that you are very familiar with succulents. I live in Calif and, unfortunately, have to deal with heavy plant mailing restrictions INTO my state.

    However, I would love your suggestions regarding how to ship a bare-root plant out to my Mom back East. How long should I let the roots dry out (after removing all the dirt from the plant) before I box it up? And, is it okay for the plant to be wrapped first in a clean paper bag and then cushioned around with shredded paper? Is newspaper okay to use?

    Thank you so much for your time and help!

    Warm regards
