  1. Hey y'all! So this year I didn't make any crosses - however I saved a stock of my 2015 hybrids - carefully preserved in the freezer - and will make them available through Zelly this year. Zelly had an amazing year himself - his own TPM flowered and was successfully hybridized - so, happy cactus growing times are ahead - stay tuned!
  2. Wow man, those Validus x (SS02 x SS01) are freakin epic!
  3. Wow man, nice photos! Space forest..
  4. That's awesome - gonna have to grow out some validus crosses at some point.. Same with terscheckii

    San pedro gone crazy

    You can take them as cuttings, but at that size it will take them forever and a day to root and grow into sizeable cacti - I would just leave all those pups on there and let them grow to like a foot each before cutting (if at all) - don't worry about it growing into itself, it will adjust it's growth angle etc

    Cactus Hybrids from Interbeing's garden

    These are awesome! It's amazing how many epic hybrids are coming out of Interbeing's garden! I received some seed from his recently and these pics make me very excited to grow them out - once my residence is moved to a place that gets more light I'll be starting these hybrids out..
  7. I've participated in quite a number of aya ceremonies in the USA - from time to time people do completely lose it and have to be restrained and so forth - never seen someone become dangerous to others, but sometimes people are just super high and become dissociated and convinced that they are possessed by evil spirits, or paranoid that it is a conspiracy, or that they have been poisoned - that sort of thing. In these cases sometimes the person has to be taken to another room and potentially restrained until they come down a bit. Now, the important thing to know is that these "serious adverse events," like the stabbing death - they occur in a tiny fraction of a % of all the people who consume ayahuasca. When we compare those unfortunate outcomes with the reality that the vast majority of people experience enormous, often life-changing benefit, the overall picture is that the benefits of ayahuasca outweigh the risks by a spectacular margin. In the USA, 40% of ALL violent crime happens under the influence of alcohol. 75% of ALL domestic violence cases involve a drunk male. Now, just imagine if the media reported these events each time they happened!
  8. Yah my LJ crosses are still lagging behind.. TPM x SB and the reverse are doing awesome though.. -- Per letters not arriving - I mailed them to every person who PM'd me an addy. However, I know of one case where customs nabbed them for being E. scop rather than T. scop, which of course is absurd. So, they may not arrive for everyone, which is a pity. I will not personally be sending seed out to people whose package did not arrive. However in the big picture there are now an abundance of these seeds in the community, and I'll infuse them in various ways over time if need be - everyone will eventually have happy little mutant trichos trying to take over their gardens
  9. Yah hopefully they all come through - in the 2012 giveaway some Australian letters took weeks to arrive..
  10. Stoked they are all arriving! I decided to sow some of these crosses myself - realizing that I have a south facing window that gets several hours of sunlight each morning that, coupled with the warmth of indoors, should be just fine to get them started this winter. Sowed them up about 2 weeks ago - getting near 100% on all of them except with Lumberjackus as mother - those have been much slower to germinate - only a few have so far - curious to see if it's a seed viability issue or if they are just slow to germinate - the LJ motherplant received the same treatment as all the other cacti, though it flowered much later in the season than the others. Lol Zelly, very few people can read my writing! That is nice of you to suggest that folks send ol' nitro a xmas card or seeds and that sort of thing. Please though SABers, don't send me any currency - makes it feel like the seeds weren't a gift then..

    Cactus Hybrids from Interbeing's garden

    Wow, the Fields x Roseii #1 and Psychonaut x Rosei are awesome! Likewise the Roseii 1 x Roseii 2 specimen above!
  12. Lol man my handwriting is atrocious - and gets worse all the time! Cubism I am deeply sorry for your loss re the underwear. I also want to apologize for any undue distress this caused as you shuffled your way back up the driveway, clutching your rear, attempting desperately (and unsuccessfully) to prevent the unsavory matter from spilling out the bottom of your shorts onto your sandal'd feet. I imagine this event has set things back a bit regarding the precarious peace between you and your neighbors..
  13. Hi there sagiXsagi - there are a number of pics of the TPC and TPM on the first page of this thread - and then some others on page 20. Lol, my TPC is now Zelly's TPC - it is growing in the ground over at his place and is doing awesome! So much healthier than when I had it in a pot + no sunshine + mealy bugs. It only flowered in 2012 though - had not before and has not since - it's putting on a bunch of vegetative growth right now so maybe it will do that for a bit before flowering..
  14. Glad these seeds are arriving safely! It warms my heart! USA recipients are a certainty, but anytime plants and seeds have to clear international customs issues can arise. That said though, I've not had a single package sent to Australia not get through, in all these years.. Per the mutation rate - all the TPM crosses that I've done since the initial TPM x SS02 cross (2008 I think it was?) have been with the same TPM plant, which I picked up many years ago at a small cactus nursery that has since gone out of business. I suspect there are different strains of TPM - my TPC is clearly different - it grows crested as well as monstrose, and looks different in other ways. I should probably give my TPM motherplant a name to distinguish it from what may be other strains of TPM that have and probably will produce hybrid seed. Let me think a bit regarding what to name the thing - how about either "Phenshine" or "SpheroStrato"? In previous years, the mutation rate seems to be about 50% for this TPM as mother, and 30%+ for this TPM as father.. Hard to say though - sometimes as the seedlings get bigger they develop monstrose pheno that wasn't apparent when younger..
