 The first edition of this article was published on the "Cactus Francophone" in 2000. A second edition was published in the magazine "Succulentes" (May 2001). Since then, I received many comments, suggestions and questions. Moreover, I have sown much more, giving me the opportunity to note some further details. Based on the 2nd edition, this 3rd one should give you a closer view. The first edition of this article was published on the "Cactus Francophone" in 2000.

     * Some kinds of pots or labels do not support heat. They melt. Therefore, first of all, make a test. For instance, black square pots of 5 x 5 cm do not resist, whereas the 6 x 6 cm ones do. In that case, lacking a heat resistant pot, sterilization can be done with bleach, but do not forget to rinse with sterile water.     * Some kinds of pots or labels do not support heat. They melt.

     * Take care, as the soil should be soaked in the beginning and should only start to dry at the end of the sterilization. The water, by evaporating, regulates the temperature. If no more water is left, the temperature may increase enough to roast the soil, melt the pot and labels or even burn all of it.     * Take care, as the soil should be soaked in the beginning and should only start to dry at the end of the sterilization.

     * This method is applicable to all cacti, but it is particularly recommended for the so-called difficult slow growing species : Blossfeldiana, Strombocactus, Geohintonia, Aztekium, some Parodia... In that case, one year in the "baggy" is needed.     * This method is applicable to all cacti, but it is particularly recommended for the so-called difficult slow growing species : Blossfeldiana, Strombocactus, Geohintonia, Aztekium, some Parodia...

-This is a kind of table-box, made by myself, from material I recovered here and there. It is simply made of 5 wooden boards. 2 upright (100x30 cm) making the sides and in between 3 horizontal ones (160x30 cm). Under each of the upper 2, there is a ramp of 2 fluorescent tubes of 1m50 (58W, but it is not necessary to get them that strong) so as to have about 20 cm between the upper side of the pots and the tubes. Better is to use 2 kinds of tubes, 1 Home light (red) + 1 cool white (blue), in order to get the light spectrum the plants need. They are sold in any "do-it-youself" store or supermarket. There is no need for heating, since the neon tubes already heat very much (almost too much). Correct air circulation is required to keep the temperatures beneath 30° C. In my opinion, ideally one should maintain a temperature around 24 to 28° C at day and lower at night - around 15 to 20° C.+This is a kind of table-box, made by myself, from material I recovered here and there.

 A timer gives 12h30 as a day and 11h30 a night. That should be the same as the luminosity during the month of May. A timer gives 12h30 as a day and 11h30 a night. That should be the same as the luminosity during the month of May.
