  1. Hi Guys, this is my first competition and it´s basically my way to say thanks to all my friends here who helped me throughout the years. Either by sending me seeds, positive energy or kept me motivated. You know who you are, so take this as my way of saying thanks. I´ll be giving away some of my seeds. I actually wanted to simply make a give-away thread but I did that so many times that I felt like it may be a good time to try something new. As I´d really like to see some of the plants that will grow out of the seeds, I thought a grafting competition would be a nice way to get that accomplished. What everyone will get to get started: 1 x 30 seeds Trichocereus Peruvianus from Matucana. This is fresh from 2015 and it´s the seed I have in the Trichocereus seed shop. It´s among the best Trichocereus seeds I ever had and I am so happy about it that I want to share some of them with you guys. This is confirmed Matucana seeds, that produces some of the coolest Trichos ever. Good examples of Matucana Perus are Trichocereus Rosei, Sharxx Blue, and some more. 1 x 30 seeds Trichocereus Tarmaensis This is Trichocereus Tarmaensis, which is some kind of Cuzcoensis relative and has some amazing long spines and grows into a really impressive plant. 1x 30 seeds Trichocereus Knuthianus This seed probably belongs into the Knuthianus group. That´s all I know and I am really interested to see how it will turn out. 1 x 30 seeds Trichocereus Peruvianus from the Lurin Valley. Well, this is an extremely strong growing form and I can´t wait to see your seedlings. Really rare and some of the best quality seed I ever had. Well cleaned and just very viable. The competition: I will send out 10 packs to some skilled growers on SAB. Everyone who participates should have access to some grafting stocks because the purpose of this competition is to get the coolest grafting until the end of the competition on April the 1st, 2016. The SAB members will vote the most badass pics by liking the posts. The winner is chosen by the most "Likes", though I originally wanted to make it about length. But many men will probably agree that length isn´t everything. As I´d like to see as many successful graftings as possible, I´d prefer if experienced growers participate in this competition but I will definitely not say no to someone that is not really great with grafting and just wants to give it a try. For everyone else I will probably start another giveaway in 6-12 months. Shipping will probably take up to 4 weeks, which is why I chose a longer duration of the competition. But everyone who once sent me seeds and is interested in growing some of them too, let me know. The prize: The winner gets another 300 of the Matucana Peruvianus seeds, 30 viable seeds of Trichocereus Taquimbalensis plus three different bags of my most valuable hybrid seeds. I will also showcase all of the participating plants and winners on Trichocereus.net and the Trichocereus Facebook group to give this competition some exposure. How to participate: Please send me a pm with your complete address, including the name and the country just to make sure I dont send them to the wrong country by accident. Shipping and Labels: I am sending from Germany and want to make sure that everything is correctly labeled for Australian quarantine, which is why I´ve labeled them according to their Import conditions lists: Here and here Trichocereus Tarmaensis . Echinopsis Tarmaensis Trichocereus Knuthianus - Echinopsis Knuthiana Trichocereus Peruvianus - Trichocereus Peruvianus

    Dawson Pasacana x OP

    From the album: MeanGreen's Ethnobotanical Garden

    One of my current favourite grafts, growth is a bit slower than the more common species but well worth it.
  3. I'm dusting off my Pereskiopsis, so to speak, and I'm curious about soil mix. I know peres loves wet organic soil and loves 'grow' style fertilizer and I've heard sporadic rumors that supplementary calcium and magnesium is helpful. This seems logical given the rate of growth. I've never grown peres in a basic medium, would it help or impede growth if I mixed a notable quantity of shell into the soil mix? I can also quite easily make a liquid calcium-magnesium concentrate to add to the water, its just that when I hiked out to get a load of mineral rich sand for cacti today I also picked up a lot of 1-2 cm freshwater clam shells and I can get as much of those as I can tolerate hauling the 4 kilometers back home So, basically, has anyone added lime or shell to perskiopsis soil?
  4. Trichocereus peruvianus "Serra Blue" x Trichocereus pachanoi OST 90641 More grafts done today. I try to make these little showings a bit informative so others can pick things up about grafting and I also come back and show in real time how these grafts look from one month to the next. This again provides more learning opportunities for those that want to learn how to graft. The more exposure to grafting pictures and techniques the easier it becomes to spot when something is amiss. Without further ado, my little baby grafts done today. Labels made . If you've been following me... you should know how this is done by now and what comes next. So, I will instead give you a few pictures to focus on that will help with alignment of seedlings of your scion on your stock cacti. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, stretched out parafilm will keep your graft, regardless of size, from drying out and this helps prevent lifting up of the edges of your graft that you often see when humidity is low. Larger grafts may benefit from the addition of a bit of self adhesive coban to further snug down your graft. I will come back to post pictures ever so often to show how these are progressing. As always, I welcome others to post pictures of their own specimens from this cross here so I can see what I may end up with many months down the road. Suffice it to say, I am excited to see these babies mature.

    Small tricho seedlings

    Chasing 5-10cm seedlings for the purpose of adding variety to my garden - please PM what varieties you have/price ea. I'd like to buy in pairs Cheers Edit: chasing some zelly/nitrogen hybrids too.
  6. As you can see, the left side and I have only myself to blame for that as I know the easy fix for that one. As it is though, I am happy enough with this one. I threw in some extra eye candy just because. I tried to present enough pictures so that it could be replicated by the members here.

    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?
  8. Inspired by Master B's recent post in "what did you do": How do you all manage your grafting stock? Most posts take it for granted that grafters have plenty on hand but I haven't seen a thread focused on growing stocks, aside from the hydroponic experiments. I'll start - My pereskiopsis have gained probably 30cm since a few months ago. They are 4-5 plants to a 4in square pot with a mix of sand, perlite, and potting soil that's quite a lot richer than what I use for trichos but not pure potting soil. They get about 6 hours of direct sunlight a day and I keep them watered most of the time. I've observed that similar plants I put in 6-pack pots (much smaller space) are growing at a pretty pathetic rate, by comparison.

    Ariocarpus chimera

    So I just noticed a strange new growth below the scion, coming from an areole on the pereskiopsis. Looks ariocarpus-esque, the scion is fissuratus. dont know if it's a chimera yet, or the scion pupping below the union (just as strange??) but I'll be keeping an eye on it! *sorry pics are sideways!!! 8-D has anyone seen similar before? Would be very keen to hear of it.
  10. (url removed to prevent confusion) Hey I'm trying out something different tonight. I'm doing some grafts live on webcam if anyone wanted to check it out and have a chat. The chat is currently live but the grafting will not start until 7pm AEDT (Sydney time) I'll be grafting some jourdaniana, some misc lophs, some variations, whatever I can cut and salvage! (url removed to prevent confusion) It's on tinypic at the moment as the only other free hosting i know would kick me if they saw me smoking on webcam. Feel free to stop by and say hi, put a face to the name etc, buy me some lottery tickets or take pictures of dead flowers in brand new vases.

    Grafting onto unrooted stock

    Seeing these motivational photos by distracted a lot of questions come to mind.. How big the parts .. When to remove the stocking../ do you keep them indoors till healed? / When's the best season to execute ? Do you graft on freshly made trichocereus cuttings or long time healed ones.. ? Can it be done successfully at the end of the growing season, on freshly made trichocereus stock and let them stay the winter indoors, to set roots.. or do you make the prepared stock wait till spring time and graft at the beginning of the new growth..

    Peres wanted [NZ]

    I got a few tricho seedlings underway and I'm itching to have a crack at grafting some of the buggers. Just wondering if any of the kiwis on here would have any pereskiopsis up for grabs? If anyone has any alternative species they'd recommend as stock to put the baby trich's on I'm all ears also.
  13. I have received a few Cereus peruvianus cuts & wanted to know if any members use this for grafting? If members use this for grafting, I would like to hear about your experiences. What is the best cactus stock for grafting on? Cheers jox
