    My overgrown cactus garden

    If i wanted the results ur looking for I'd go scorched earth approach...all them weed & grasses have seeds which will sprout forever, even thru layers of rocks....burn em & their parents....use a propane torch or similar around the plants you want to save, the ashes will benefit the soil & roots. digging them up puts them in shock which will retard growth for awhile while they recover...bad idea imo. burn out the grasses weeds & seeds then sprinkle time release ferts around the plants.....each time the ferts get wet they release a tiny bit of chems, thus providing regular feedings over 4-6 months
  6. TH- have you ever thought about building a cold frame and over wintering some of your smaller cacti outdoors?
  7. VRG started out as a big clump of red flowering grandiflorus with 2-3 stems only slightly variegated however when crossed with other trichs a full range of variegation can be seen..... such as mis-val (validus) x vrg to near 100% variegation scop x vrg aka Zelly Oscar consists of 4-5 stems of seed grown plants that can exhibit monstrous / crested genetics. Pics are all oscar mother plants, one of the completely spineless stems flowered this yr Olivia consists of a single stem with a few branches and doesn't exhibit any monstrous genetics Bertha is very similar in growth & looks to LumberJack although crosses both ways have been made... Imo certain hybrids when crossed with other hybrids or clones tend to occasionally produce variegated seedlings... for example the SS02xSS01 plant when crossed with LumberJack or Bertha or Icaros or (insert name) sometimes produces variegated seedlings.

    yopo seed pods

    My yopo tree started producing pods several years ago, first just a few, then more the next year, then more, and finally this year it absolutely exploded with pods. If i dont pick them they eventually dry up & split open, dropping the seeds. I'd like to hear from experienced growers or those with first hand knowledge as to the best time to pick the pods; when the seeds are at their freshest & most viable..... pic taken mid july 2018

Unfortunately the first few crosses didn't take due to the extreme heat wave we had...... 100% of the proceeds from the auction will go to Torsten & earmarked for the 2019 server fund.

    yopo seed pods

    the linage on my tree can be traced back to withdrawl clinic who confirms it to be colubrina Since a caapi thrives & a few psychotria viridis survive my winters i suspect a yopo would do just fine here

    Huachuma - San Pedro Issue

    As easily as it could be Mr Evil, so too could it be Mr Genius.... If i know EG, you'll probably score more points referring to him as Mr Genius rather than Mr Evil.... but yeah, chemical burn although in some circles of thought it could be a severe calcium/ magnesium deficiency...
  18. You do realize this is the SEED & PLANT SALES forum and not the WANTED forum correct?

    yopo seed pods

    horrible winds today blew off some pods, some pretty dried out, some still green. So i went exploring....knife in hand i split open a few pods...one still pretty green and a dried out one.....the dried out pod seems to have a couple fully mature seeds inside whereas the green one had seeds that appeared to be fully formed but still had green (and soft) seed shells. From what I've just observed & hearing from the source of my plant I've determined the best time to pick the pods is after they've dried on the tree but before they split. green pods are too unripened dried pod is just right

    Removing spines

    i worry not about spines or anything else...toss some soil in a pot, add cutting, then more soil, then stand 4-5 bricks vertical between the cutting & the pot if there's room, if not then big rocks & leave it that way til its rooted. bricks or rocks stabilize the cutting & add warmth to the soil which promotes root growth.

    Are dichotomic pups a thing ?

    had the same thing occur when the weeping black rot attacked the apical meristem of a new pup turned out to be a blessing in disguise; one branch flowered last yr & the other branch flowered this yr
  25. Perhaps something a bit more feminine such as garters & stockings?
