  1. Dr Snuggles could you please 1) cite a source that references Rauhocereus riosaniensis as a Trichocereus and 2) whom is your source for your budded up plant, and lastly 3) is your specimen a Rauhocereus riosaniensis var riosaniensis or is it Rauhocereus riosaniensis var jaenensis? http://www.iucnredlist.org/details/151741/0
  2. why dontcha try the sab cactus store,they probably have some nice cuts for ya http://www.shaman-australis.com.au/shop/plants_seeds_cp_319.php
  3. it seems i have so many flowers on so many different plants I've sorta lost interest in crossing many of them.....flowers come & go with many wasted opportunities
  4. perhaps if you knew the source of your seeds the vendor may have records of what the hybrids were to begin with... were the seeds hybrids to begin with or were the seeds all open pollinated??
  5. i still have 50-75 laying around
  6. you have a glazed pot with probably a single hole in the bottom & rocks on top of your soil, so basically you drowned your plant until it said fuckit & rotted. ditch the pot, ditch the rocks, cut the plant an inch above the rot & let it callous for 2 weeks or so in a warm dry place & repot in well draining soil if u insist on clay pots find one thats unglazed
  7. a sab member since dec 2017 and your only post is one looking for named pollen in the usa? maybe if you were more into contributing to the forum i or others would feel more comfy in helping you in your search?
  8. do a screen shot of the ebay auction, save as jpg or pdf. then in your message to ebay seller, include jpg / pdf along with a note that his auction has been reported & forwarded to certain law enforcement as possible controlled substance extracts. live plants and or cuttings are one subject, extracted materials or dried materials are another topic & the law doesnt discriminate based on labeling as 'incense' Acacia trees may be highly legal whereas root bark 'incense' can be highly illegal...
  9. plants aint stupid, stupidity just inflicts the humans taking care of them........come winter time when day lengths shorten & temps start dropping, most plants slow in growth & thus slow in water intake etc. remember folks, these are cactus plants,not super fragile temp & water sensitive plants....they can literally go months in the dead heat of summer with zero water & do just fine so it makes perfect sense to realize they need zero to little water in the winter months. think of their native environments....no shade cloth, butt freezing temps on cold winter nights, totally exposed to whatever mother nature throws at them, yet they thrive perfectly fine. 100% of what i grow (psychotria virdis, caapi, many orchids, epi's, cacti, etc etc) is exposed to outdoor temps; some though are under shade cloth, some under uv blocking green house panels. those under the gh panels get zero water from nov30-mar1, rain or shine. If / when temps drop to 26-28F the plants have a choice, live or die. mother nature is about survival of the fittest. if a person keeps soils dry, plants can weather much lower temps than when soils are wet, thats just common sense.
  10. hz x scop last yr
  11. yes hz=huarazensis
  12. fer sure mate, you can name your hybrids anything you want.....but it would probably be a good idea to wait until they flower & you start making crosses from them naming is one thing, getting world wide recognition of that name is another thing.. as for names, I'd recommend as short as possible, unless of course you enjoy writing them out hundreds if not thousands of times....
  13. my hz x scop is budding up again this yr....hopefully she will accept pollen this go around.... pic from last yr....
  14. i think the scopulicola thing needs to be re-worked.....seems that in Aus a scop can be spineless OR can have spines like a super pedro (HELON) which is just wrong imho. I have arse loads of scop hybrids with spines....are they too all HELONS? on this side of the pond we have cordobensis AND spineless scop. super pedro & cordobensis are the same plant & they are not pure spineless scops, imho they're hybrids of scop & something else. I have a buncha pure spineless SEEDLINGS from aussie seed......why isnt MB scop & BB scop listed under the scop section? They're both spineless. Is there a differentiation between MB's spineless scop, BB's spineless scop & my spineless scop?? This hulk you speak of, is it spineless or does it look super pedro like. If spineless, why muddle the scop classification?
  15. pics of uyupampensis, first bud(s) ever
