I have a black thumb.
Anyway, I made a cute planter by filling a melamine bowl full of cactus soil and placing it in a glass punchbowl, then filling the gap with colored sand. I then added a few succulents from my local Home Depot.
I had two plants were triangular and had colored flowers embedded in the tops. One died off. The other lost its flower top and became a monster.
That is my main question/concern. What, if anything do I do with it?
In the bowl, the star-spiked plant has grown and divided and seems to be doing well, but it’s getting crowded.
The one with the shorter spikes has budded a new arm. Normal, I guess?
Should I be replanting any of the cacti in the bowl?
And the tall cactus in the separate pot has about tripled or quadrupled in size and is adding new arms all the time. Time to replant to a larger pot?
I live near Chicago and these are all strictly indoors. They receive indirect sun from a south exposure. I have a grow light that is on a timer and runs about six(?) hours a day all the time.
I appreciate any suggestions or comments.
