  1. 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?
  2. 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...
  3. 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.
  4. hz x scop last yr
  5. yes hz=huarazensis
  6. 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....
  7. my hz x scop is budding up again this yr....hopefully she will accept pollen this go around.... pic from last yr....
  8. 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?
  9. pics of uyupampensis, first bud(s) ever
  10. glued hell, it took a 16d framing nail to hold the weight up of that flower! when peeps keep insisting on seeing pics of tbm flowers well then ya deliver a few! roflmao But what about a columnar type tbm aka melted wax etc? Do they flower & produce fruits? Wadda ya get when you cross a columnar tbm with a columnar tpm?
  11. BUYER BEWARE on that purple crest auction......take a close look at picture #6, the growing tips of the crest have no place to go & are jammed tight against the root stock....
  12. fb=short term, dopamine driven social feedback loop https://www.firstpost.com/tech/news-analysis/facebook-encourages-short-term-dopamine-driven-feedback-loops-that-are-destroying-society-ex-facebook-vp-of-user-growth-4254243.html
  13. an old used toothbrush is a lot more 'plant friendly' than chemicals myself, i'd brush the scale off & then blast it with water
  14. certain growers in southern florida could tell you all about growing trix in wetter areas; alas you'll probably have to connect with them via face book......there was a time when these forums were much more robust; now it seems a fair percentage of traffic has moved to fb.
  15. theres a group on facebook called Trichocereus from seed support group (or something like that) ....
