August 05 2003: The test plants just repotted

I attach you the photos of the plants that you have sent me (taken two days after their receipt)
I have waited that plants recover their strength back (they was a little dehydrated for the hot climate, And I was wondering me if the Opuntia could support the Pedios as they was bowed), but now, as you can see, they are very well.
