Hey folks, there´s a new grafting competition in my Grafting thread. I will give away some seeds of Trichocereus santaensis and Trichocereus scopulicola to max. 10 participants. If you want to participate you need to graft some of the seedlings and post photos here. I will pick the two best looking photos and award their owners a copy of my book THE SAN PEDRO GROUP. The competition runs for 6 months, so get in asap. To get in, make a post and send me your address in a pm and I´ll get the seeds to you.
Been a while since I posted on here, but thought that this was definitely worth sharing. I was visiting my folks house in the country a few weeks ago and though I grew up in that town, somehow I never noticed this one house with an epic cactus garden. I left a note on the door about my interest in cactus plants and asked if I could come around one day and have a look at the garden. I got a phone call and was told I was most welcome. A little old lady and her husband had been collecting cactus plants for the last thirty or forty years. They'd gotten most of their plants from a mail order company in South Australia. They were kind enough to give me a bunch of cuttings of all sorts of different types. I returned the favour the next day with a small box of different trich cuttings, which I have no doubt they'll look after and hopefully will one day be as big as the scops they've got all around their place. Note- would have been very easy to just break off some branches in the middle of the night, but that's just not the way to do things. In my experience 100% of the people I've approached for cuttings have been very generous and in one case told me I could take the whole thing. It's always better to ask permission, trade some cuttings of your own if you have them and develop a relationship with the owners, who knows, maybe one day they'll say I can have the lot. Anyway... thought I'd share some pics. I got a cutting of the massive scop, it's already taken root and looks like it will flower soon too. Remind me in a year or two and I'd be happy to send out cuttings or seeds if anyone is interested.
