Hywell! How many cacti do you grow? Do you have a greenhouse for the winter?I have a question, when you repot them do you water suddenly or wait for a week or more? I red this somewere: please!

I don't know exactly how many different types of cacti I've got. It's difficult to count them all, but there are about 110 different species in all.
In the summer I keep them in cold frames. In the winter I bring them into a conservatory.

I water them immediately after repotting. I give them a good soaking, and then let them dry out before the next watering.

wow! I wonder how can you remember all the names! I repotted some succulents yesterday and didn't water them so I'll do it tomorrow! Do you have aloe vera? I suppose you do!
I prefer succulents to cactus, specially because I haven't a conservatory for the winter and many succulents can stay outside in wintertime! Thank you for answering!

I remember most names, but not all. I have them written down on plant labels incase I forget :)

I haven't got Aloe vera. I've never seen it.
