Divide and conquer

I had to do something! The hats grew bigger and stronger so that their "legs" could no longer support them. Before they could fall over, I took the little faucarias and separated them - divide and conquer.
I also set them much deeper so that their seed leaves now almost touch the soil. Like this they have enough support and they can't evaporate too much moisture.

Also, something else is happening:

Is he actually sticking his tongue out at me???
The seedlings are so beautifully round now that I like them just the way they are, but to see the first pair of leaves there in the middle is just too exciting.
