  3. A good start :wink:


    Founds heaps more than this. There are a few spots, nowhere near what it's going to be like in a months time, with any luck. Can't remember when I spotted them first least season (will try an remember though), I suspect they have popped up after the big rains a couple of weeks ago, hadn't checked the spots since then, before that there was none. There were some larger rotten ones, so yeah, probably been there for a bit.

  4. Last season and also this one I have been using just a premium potting mix for all my Trichocereus sp. except for my TBMs. Seems to work really well for me. Had no losses or rot or anything like that. Plenty of pupping and good growth and health in general. I plan to keep doing this as it seem good and is a bit simpler (and a little bit cheaper than say cacti mix). I do amend the potting media for other cacti, also have made my own mineral based mixes for Mexican cacti etc. but that's a whole other story.

    It's pretty humid here and fairly high rainfall etc. coastal. To give an idea on my growing climate.

    It's always good to experiment though. You will always find things that work and things that work not so well and many variables in between. There's always that perfect mix, is just a matter of finding/making it (or in my case with Tricho's, not :) ).

    EDIT: Just noticed that I have reached my 1337 post count. I'm a bit of a geek, so that's pretty impressive to me. Don't know if I can bear to make another post as I will become un-1337...

  5. 1.Thought it was spach at first, but it's not. Looks like it might be a Cleistocactus sp. also the one to the right looks like Rebutia sp.

    2. Something etiolated.

    3. Reminds me of Sulcorebutia sp. though it looks a bit etiolated.

    4.Mammilaria sp.

    5. Haworthia sp.

    6.Mammilaria cv. Arizona Snowcap.

    7. Reminds me of Echinocereus sp. but not 100%

    8. Variegated Opuntia sp. I forget the species.

    9.As mentioned, probably Echinocactus grusonii

    10.Pachypodium sp.

    11.Looks like A Euphorbia sp.

    12. Looks like Ferocactus robustus edit: Could be F. pilosus

    13. Echinocactus grusonii kinda looks like v. albispinus, but could be just normal.

    Hope that helps. Some of those plants need some TLC.

  6. Just to clarify. I wasn't saying WT's lophs aren't worth every penny they are priced at. He is a well known and respected member of the community and grows plants very well. If I can get some money together I will grab a few myself because I am interested in seed production. These are great for novice growers as they will tolerate mistakes more than a seed grown loph as they will have a fibrous root system to begin with when they are de grafted and re rooted. Not to mention the size.

  7. Yeah, tripsis must take all credit. They are his seeds that he kindly donated to the community. I am just the middle man as he didn't have time to muck around with getting the seeds out of the fruits, cleaning the debris off, then packing and posting.

    Cheers tripsis :worship:
