Hey everyone, Here are the latest photos (hot off the press) of my Trichocereus. They've been moved into the sun, and mostly weeded, and once I've fertilized them - then we can sit back and enjoy the sun. :)/>/>/>/>/>/> We'll begin with a sunset from the farm. The sun "setting" is just a sun-rise from another perspective. ;P Here's the eight-pupper bridgesii I talked about. There's another pup on the other side too. Really weird. I'm guessing it had some BAP exposure? If not, then this plant could be a bushy brancher. These are the bigger columns; growing doggedly. Peruvianus 'Martin' on the left fore, the bent one is a Pachanoi 'NZ Yowie', 3rd to the left is my vigorous Ecuadorian Pachanoi (my favourite clone of Pachanoi so far), on the far right is a Peruvianus (presumably hybrid) that grows quickly and fatly. 2nd Bridgesii to the left rear might be distinct enough to get a name, and if it keeps growing like that - I'll call it 'Nailbat' (it was seed-grown by bit). Centre Peruvianus is 'MB' clone. This is a nice bridgesii hybrid, long yellow spines (has the ordered spine-layout of a bridgesii hybrid), and a blue coat. My Peruvianus 'MB' clone. Really dark blue, wonderful spines - it's a real fetcher. The pale color is because I've taken it out from under the shade of the Cyprus tree and it's a bit shocked my the full-sun. Some more plants chilling out. The smooth pachanoi on the right was my first plant, and all this growth here was grown by me (this was a cutting from the original). The back left plant is a distinctive Peruvianus clone that I'm waiting to 'blue-up', as it's got fantastic golden spines - it was sold as variegated too, but none has shown yet (if it was true). Pach 'Omar' x Peru. The cross was done by Hellonasty (thanks again good sir), and the seedlings are all wonderful. The tallest three were potted up the earliest, and as you can see benefited greatly. They also fell off the deck and got wasted up from a 3m fall, but came back strongly. The plant on the far right was originally grafted to a Selenicereus, and was the biggest originally. But once it transitioned to its own roots, it was quickly overtaken - - it looks like the derp of the group, so I'm hesitant to invest much more in grafting as a result. Some seedlings from early last year. Mostly SS hybrids, each pot is a different cross. Growing really well, and just about to take off in these pots (full sun). Sadly (for you guys) there's nothing funky from this lot, and they'll all normal - albeit exciting plants. Under the tree I. These have almost all come from cuttings, and are the Trichocereus with larger areoles (mostly). Peruvianus 'Martin' apparent in front right. Couple wildseed-sourced bridgesiis growing in the back. Some macros in there too. Some mutts as well. Under the tree II. Another view. :)/> Two fat tersceckii are easy to spot. There's a T. Candicans in the middle I think?, Chiloensis, Taquimbalensis and Werdermannius at the back. SS02xBridgesii hybrid on the far right. Some Qat babies. Getting used to near full-sun. Some leaf curl and such going on, but otherwise they're doing well. I'm worried about winter though. ;o Assorted Trichocereus from above. :] In the foreground, you can see just the tops of both of my Terscheckii open-hybrids. They're very fat, areoles are not circular, little squat yellow spines in the shape of Tersceckii but the length of Pachanoi. Some bridgesiis in the middle, and some of my better Pachanois on the middle right. You'll be able to notice a square pot with a plant that is curving - that was my attempting at side-rooting, and persuaded me to never ever ever waste my time with it in a pot again. :P/> It was put in that pot at least 2 years ago. The longneck herd from afar.
