Nice grafts, where'd you get the jourds from?

Hate to say it, but those seedlings are in no way Lophophoras.

If i wasn't going overseas soon, I'd definitely take you up on that offer, but I'm trying to lessen my collection of plants that need more-than-average attention to make it easier for those who are looking after them. It's very tempting though...how much are they?

Really? Well damn, they don't look anything like any of my Loph seedlings, nor any I've ever seen pictures of. They are just so spiny. Are you sure you couldn't have mixed them up with some Trichocereus seeds?

mushroomman, I love the L. jourdanianus, such pretty plants. And tripsis is right, those aren't Lophophora seedlings. I think you might have labeled a photo wrong or something, as those look like any random Trichocereus seedling I have ever seen and not like one L. williamsii seed.

I'll give it a miss, cheers for the offer though.

That is very weird. Not a single one of mine look anything like that. They just look like miniature Lophs. It'll be interesting to see how yours turn out.

but as i have said befor i havent had any other seeds to mix them up with the only seeds i collect from my plants are lophophora seeds and no one has ever sent me any other cacti seeds other than ariocarpus seeds ahd those seedlings look nothing like these

these seedlings looked like the seedling in the center of my last pic when i had them growing under lights but once i moved them out under natural light they started growing these long spines but the one in the center didnt sprout till they got moved outside there is also another small one at the base of the spiney one to the left of it

maybe the Trichocereus fairy came and sprinkled them in your mix lol :P,because they absolutely look like trichs seedlings ...except that one which is a loph...how perplexing

The one in the centre down the bottom is a Lophophora for sure

There is also one to the left hiding at the base of one of the tricho seedlings plus there is a dead flying insect there aswell.

Where did you get the seeds may i ask?

just made 3 grafts ,i will post some pics if they take

it will be interesting to see what they are because if there not lophs, i dont know how they got in my loph seed container and where the fuck all my loph seeds went lol, beacuse i'v collected a 100+ seeds off my lophs over the last couple of years and never had any of my other cacti put out any fruit.

I was thinking the exact same thing.

If you've ever showed off your seeds to someone... then this is a distinct possibility. :o

Looks to me that there's two different species in there.

The loph's will not have any hard spines. take a pencil and brush up against one

with it, if it bends along the length... you're ok

if the taller ones don't bend along the length but at the base

then you've got another species. Perhaps even a trich sp.

What everyone else said - someone's swapped your loph seed for trich seed

yeah ,im thinking the same thing now but i dont think they are trichs ,the couple i grafted must have been lucky picks then, because both that have taken are lophs and they all looked the same when i grafted them ,lol
