    5 months from seed to flower

    From the album: MeanGreen's Ethnobotanical Garden

    Grafted this baby as a 2 weeks old seedling on the 27th of April. Seeds were from one of my own williamsii, full circle :)
  2. Hey, can anyone tell me what this one is doing? Seems like a cresting loph with another cresting pup?
  3. Hey folks, Just looking for the right someone that has too many loph seeds and not enough time to sew them! Pass them my way if you want them to go to a good home. Im looking at buying any loph seeds you have.
  4. Hello everyone, A friend of mine overseas sent me these pictures of degrafted and rooted lophophoras which he bought for an amazing price (around 25 bucks each?). I was rather suspicious since it sounds too good to be true so decided to ask if these are just some of the more common lookalikes out there. The three heads in the photo are approximately 6 cm each and the one with the roots is around 5 cm. The ribs are clearly defined but these do not look like any of the classic williamsii's I have seen on the web so far. Unfortunately I don't own any so I can't compare. Any of you guys know if this is a particular variation of williamsii or another species altogether? Thanks in advance!

    5 year old pereskopsis Grafts

    Who says Pere is a temporary stock? These were grafted Oct 2012 as 8 day old seedlings. They look shiny, as i'd just washed off some tomato dust before photographing. The spinosad doesn't seem to have knocked the mealy around at all, and neither has the sulphur, but both chemicals seem to smash the spider mite. I think the pot size is 83mm but dont quote me. This Willamsii var Mazapil was purchased off Watertrade in late 2012 and is still on its original stock, however was cut down, rerooted on a rockwool cube, and then planted back out once roots emerged from the bottom of the rockwool, the stock is about 3 cm long these days. Anyone else out there got ancient pere grafts still cranking?

    Ant damage

    Hey all, I've very recently moved one of my fresh loph seedlings outside to catch the last of the warmer weather. They have been sitting on a window sill for the past few months. The other day I checked on them and noticed a bunch of ants have been chewing holes in one of them. Has anyone had this problem? And how do you stop the little psychonauts from having a feast? I've moved them back to the window sill but am wondering if the damage done will prove fatal, should I try and salvage the plant by grafting?
  9. Stop your watering, protect your plants, have patience, They will grow again!
  10. link in my sig! welcome one and all share your tips, banter, pics, collections buy swop sell! we are a friendly bunch

    Loph graft for sale

There are 7 pups growing from the Button, some with their own small pups on them. There are also several others starting to emerge.

Graft is a Lophophora williamsi.var.caespitosa. The Catus has been organically grown outdoors so it is already hardened to outside conditions. Cactus will be sent bear rooted, using Registered Post, to the lucky recipient in a well padded tube to ensure it isn't damaged in transit. Price - $130 ono Please feel free to ask any questions you may have.
  12. Did this graft about 8 months ago during the winter .. what can I say I was new to grafting and was super keen! things went south fast.... but someone told me to cut the rot out like cutting the bad bit out of a potato? here is my story in pictures and the subsequent recovery! enjoy! learn from my mistakes! my first ever graft and my first post to this forum! I hear your a good bunch of lads. the rootstock was unrooted and the peyote/trich were in dormancy... I have since learned my lesson!

  18. Haha yep, starting one of these here! My friend just sent me some ridiculous porn of some lophs that were over 50+ years of age from some very old collector here in Vic and I needed to share them here so why not start an appreciation thread and share the porn! Here is how big they are next to a basketball... And here is some photos of a nude models I took... I tried to "cop a feel" but that sadly resulted in a restraining order...

    Lophophora Cultivars

    Okay so I'm suddenly ridiculously interested in Lophophora cultivators... How are they grown?! In what conditions?! Where can I get seeds?! HOW DO I DO THIS?! A lot of these sexy cultivators seem to be from Japan but there are a few Thai ones as well. Anybody have information on these? I've tried contacting some nurseries but with no luck. LET ME KNOW YOUR SECRETS!!!! A lot of these sexy cultivators seem to be Diffusa with some being Fricii, seems rare to be able to mess around with williamsii genetics? Also some Loph CV porn ;) - these are from different sources, so I can't guarantee that they're correct in names. L. fricii cv. Ooibo ginkan L. diffusa cv. ? L.diffusa cv. Ooibo L. diffusa cv. Ootake L. diffusa (This is the controversial astro x loph, it's not, a Japanese friend said that the description for it was in bad Japanese but pretty much said "Its name is dumbo, its a seedling. Very strange and lovable. And wonder how many in the world exist?" It also said something about the distance between the ears.) L. diffusa Ooibo Siwa Ginkan L. cv. Kikko L. diffusa cv. Dekapai Suikan This is a great site, some person in Japan (I'm pretty sure) that visits nurseries or owns a nursery.... not too sure. But there are quite a few unique cv's in there. http://www5e.biglobe.ne.jp/~hama-jj/index.html
  20. I found these lophophora forgotten in a cardboard box for over a year. Most of them look really bad, and I am not certain the best way to save them. I hope the more experienced hands are willing to lend an opinion on the best way to save these. This was jourdania graft whose stock rotted out from under it. No rot on the scion, but it doesn't look good due to the medusa like etiolation: This is a willamsii: This is a L. willamsii too: This koehresii while ugly doesn't look too bad. Plant, let it plump up, and cut? How deep would you plant this? This fricii looks like it is in the best shape out of all of them. I think it's simply a matter of getting it back in soil Not sure what this is exactly. Either a koehresii or willamsii:
  21. The little cactus has flowered twice in the past 3.5 months. Any ideas people?
  22. So, early in November (2013) I was inspired to try and recreate the natural habitat soils of Central America. - going only by what I have read and seen in photos of lophs in natural habitat. this article gave me some examples that tipped me over the edge! >> http://www.cactusconservation.org/CCI/library/2009_Snicer_TheLittlestLophophora.pdf Apart from wanting to provide an optimal grow medium, I am also totally taken by the creamy limestone "clay" with the deep cracks emanating from each plant. I have often seen limestone chunks dropped on top of soil in pots but it looks clumsy and I doubt that the low surface area is effective in distributing mineral from the limestone (especially if bottom-watering). Limestone is not freely available where I am and I wanted to use something locally and easily available, so basically I wanted to make a limestone soil, without limestone. Limestone is essentially calcium carbonate CaCO3, so are seashells, so are eggshells, so that's what I used. I decided the medium should be ground finely if it was to produce a smooth consistency that would crack between waterings. The eggshells were by far easier to grind in the mortar and pestle than the seashells (of which I washed the salt off first) but the seashell "flour" is absolutely divine, sings like porcelain when you stir it with a teaspoon! :-) I had also been recommended gypsum, for it's calcium content and ability to turn clay friable. But because of it's neutral pH it would not be a substitute for the slightly alkaline sea and egg shells. (alkaline like limestone) Gypsum did however prove useful in enhancing the cracking effect on the surface... The final mix included: seashells eggshells gypsum clay I kept a fair amount of the plants' previous mix around the roots so as not to shock them, including pumice, scoria, "cactus mix", and coco-coir. I was a bit worried that I was almost setting them in plaster! the medium dries quite hard, but can be broken apart when wet... They are watered with worm tea, and are looking pretty healthy almost 2 months on... here is an example of growth below ^November ^January others... The only variation I have used since, is adding some perlite to avoid compaction, but I didn't like the grey colour it gave... although I am germinating 100 fricii seeds in it with a 41/100 rate so far and all are looking delightfully bright... If anyone has some tips or cautionary advice, please lay it on me! :-) Thanks for looking!
  23. Here are my first efforts at grafting... lophophora var caespitosa on to Trichocereus Pachanoi (possibly a hybrid crossed with Peruvianus)... This one grafted onto a Trich that I grew from seed. This one went very well...
  24. Hello fellow saber's! I was just thinking it would be a good idea to have a pinned thread about germination and care for cacti seedlings until they are Semi-mature/mature. At the moment i have a question also to start off. I planted heaps of cacti seeds into some takeaway containers and most of them all germinated there was all sorts of cacti. but i think i may have left them to long eaither in to dark conditions beause they were quiet elongated or because they got to dry... as they all died i had them in pure river sand. so how long should i keep them in the containers next time, how often should i water them and what lighting conditions do they need throughout their childhood (if you can call it that)?
