I really hope that you people hybridize the hell out of them in a few years time,.... I would love to see what comes out......... DER UBER TRICH! hahahaha I would love some seeds or cuttings then!

My trichs never flower,. too bad, cause I would try to hybridize them in any way possible............. trichs that ooze out some golden alkaloidal goody right under the areoles,....imagine that!!! :-)

Sorry guys... I've been mostly lurking here and active over at the nook

I made 4 sews this winter and still plenty seeds for more!

on 12-12-12 I sewed (labeled as)

Fresh seeds:

Validus x Lumberjacks 100.03% sprouts! 2 more sprouted than I thought I planted 35 out of 33 lol

PcPachxss02-ss01 90% sprouted 33 out of 40

Seeds I had over a year

Ariocarpus Fissuratus 50% sprouted 8/16

T. Spachianus 75% sprouted 19/24 including an albino!

T. Werdermannianus approx 30% sprouted 9/33, but one looks like it dried up.. one fell over too and maybe lost roots so maybe my 1st seed graft

T. Validus ... from 2 vendors 0 (with a slash through) sprouts

T. Terscheckii - another goose egg

On 12 -18..

a few of 2 forms of pach

and bridgesii from 2 vendors

plus a couple seeds I dropped in the first sew (which both came up lol)

12-21-12, several year old Peruvianus labeled seeds and Astrophytum Asterias, a Discocactus Araneispinus, which both have no sprouts

Very low counts on the Peruvianus

One labeled Macrogonus about 1/4 sprouted... 6/24

Peru Huancamba, 1 sprout

Peru Ayacucho 1 sprout

Peru Tarmaensis - g00se

Peru Koehres - g00se

Then on New years I began an experiment on rockwool which is going excellent..65 seeds total planted

A few of each are sprouted, with 15 in total , not bad on old seeds and expecting more...

4 pieces of rockwool (1 inchers cut in half put in a baked potato domed container from a restaurant)

Peruvianus 'Matucana'

Peru Macrogonus from a different vendor as the previous mac seeds

and the same two types of pach seeds...

Plus I've got a few more packs of seeds! will update around when I sew...

Im approaching 150 seedlings 146 total I think so far... so I'm gonna be working on some grafts as we approach spring here :)

starting with the albino tomorrow! :)

Happy Sewing and growing :worship:

First time sower!!! Excited much???? :-)

I spent all day going over as much info as i could re: soil mixtures and tricks, and now i have sowed:

T. Pachanoi ~ 50-70 seeds

T. Rosei ~ 15-20 seeds

L. Williamsii ~ 100 seeds

B. Caapi - 20 seeds

almost all seeds from SAB'ers except for a bunch of Pachanoi.

Soil mix mainly used:

1/3 perlite,

1/3 propagation sand

1/3 seed raising mixture

Except for B. caapi, where i substituted the seed raising mixture for peat moss.

All sieved using a sieve bought from bunnings. There really are a lot of large chunks (even in the propagation sand) which i didn't want in the mix.

All steralized at 180degC for 25 minutes.

I am currently soaking Acacia Floribunda seeds so and intend to plant them tonight..

I sincerely hope to see some results. But hey, that was heaps of fun ... can see myself becoming addicted to the whole germination side of things!

much love SAB'ers

I was thinking Lophophora fricci, but then see the VERY RARE, maybe L. fricci var albiflora?

Was thinking along the same lines Lophophora Diffusa var. Fricii ?

Ill end this game tonight, it is not a diffusa nor a fricii. :)

Good try though I could imagine both would look similar, I might try searching to compare :)

P.s wish I had a albiflora >.
