    seed sale gone wrong

    Hey mate, thanks for bringing it to our attention. This needs to be resolved ASAP. Please keep us informed how it goes. Ghosting customers is not a good thing and if we see it around here, we look really closely.

    old account

    Hey mate, I am not sure if it's actually the case but merging accounts like that might not be supported by the software. I've seen hacks in older versions, but not sure if it's possible in this version. Would definitely recommend bringing it up with Torsten as he knows the software best.

    Neglected Cacti ID Request

    Hey mate, lots of possibilities here. I can say that 1,2,3,4,8,9 are definitely hybrids or botanical plants involving Trichocereus bridgesii. The Bridgesii body is dominant in those.
  4. Hey mate, it looks perfectly fine now. Leave it as it is. If you keep it at a not too cold place with low air humidity and lots of fresh air it should be alright. If not post it again. About the pesticide. Haven't used it before, but definitely possible it causes burns. Don't ever use pesticides in direct sunlight. Also make sure to follow the dosage recommendations religiously. Bye EG

    Some ID's?

    Hey mate, agree with Hylocereus. Maybe with some Epicactus/Epiphyllum in between. It's not really my field, but the flowers might help.

    My overgrown cactus garden

    My experience with planted out cacti is kinda limited because it's too cold here, but I would definitely remove all the weeds in the area and put stones around them to keep them from coming up again. And yeah, I'd also use lots of fertilizer and plant extracts to improve their health. Get a good professional fertilizer that doesn't cause burns and use some like Seaweed extract, calming, diluted coconut water etc. There's lots of things that improve plant health and I feel you should just keep the area more dry and provide more nutrients.

    Does street lighting affect flowering.

    Hey mate, I don´t think that street lights have a significant negative effect on cacti. Cacti are very different to plants like pot and don´t need a special day/night rhythm. You could basically grow them at light 24/7, so I doubt it will affect them negatively.

    New member Spiritlands is a good bloke

    Hey mate, I tried removing him from mod preview but the option isn't there anymore. Maybe @Torsten can help you with that though?

    Mosiac virus (TMV) Awareness, solutions.

    Would love to see photos too. Lots of things are misidentified as Tobacco Mosaic Virus and there's lots of panic around it. Malnutrition, Sun burn, nutrient deficiencies, cold damage, insect damage etc can all look like TMV.

    Yeah, when you have the luck to have such a great climate, make use of it. And yeah, nice collection. It will be the start of something great.

    Not so happy loph - Advice please.

    Hi mate, that's a terrible soil for Lophophora. Your buddy needs a mineral soil consisting of stuff like Pumice, Lava and similar minerals. The soil needd to dry lightning fast.
  12. Get a brush and scrub them off carefully, then start treating it with a pesticide like Azamax, Spinosad, Imidacloprid, Pyrethrum,White Oil, Alcohol etc. All of these can cause adverse reactions or burns, so make sure to follow all instructions.

    Help to ID these 3 Trich

    They make gorgeous stands with hundreds of flowers. Other than this I cannot provide any insight. Discussion of potency isn't allowed, and I don't want to get into trouble with the mod. ;)

    Help to ID these 3 Trich

    First ones are all PC or PC offspring. The last two are Trichocereus bridgesii. Lovely how spiny this little pup already is.
