Do you think this guy will survive the black rot? or is it time to cut it out ?

all good, it's just the bridgesii oozing skin disease, it'll clear up if you put it in the sun/out of the wet

@ dood - It still has a few spots oozzing, but most of black marks are firm

 

@ discostu - Thanks for the advise, i was hoping someone would say it should clear up without need of surgery.  :)

it's like cactus thrush, it's pretty gross but it'll clear up and it's not life threatening

Now we wait. Shout out to @MoonUnitBotanica and @olive. About 1.5k seeds throughout there and about the same left in my pocket.

 

I got sick of forgetting where stuff came from so from now on all my plants are given numerical IDs which correlate to their entry in my garden database. So from now on if I ever sell/giveaway/trade seed/plants/cuttings/fruit, they'll include my ID (along with all the /useful/ info of course :P) so you/I can keep track of wtf I did to it/it's heritage/etc.

I was going to ask what you even do with 1.5k potential seedlings but your serial numbers indicate that you have over 150 million.

 

What do you do with 150 million cacti?

 

edit: besides count them, i mean

"YYMMRRRR". 

Y = Year, M = Month, R = Random 0-9 :P 

 

A lot will be coming back to the community in the coming years. The rest is for fun and probably selling. 

 

I wish I had millions :(

Just remember that the lance and Kia are open pollinated seed so will not be true to type of Kai nor Lance

You'll get some interesting variety in the phenotypes from the moonunit's seeds if they are anything like the ones I sowed about a year ago. Some really cool spiny bridgesoids...

Would love to see some of your interesting ones glaukus. I've all my seedlings under lights now. I'm really hoping for something interesting to come up. Fingers crossed for the Funkoid x psycho0 and its reverse cross. Got a few thousand each come up.

There was also a "San pesto de pasco" in flower, a Peruvians of sort as well as a blue Peru Cv. "David" as well as cordobensis cv "lance" come to think of it :)

what sp, var is that astro? I have one the same.

 

edit- nice boultwood, u must be one of the first people I sold a cut to?

A bit of background info, I sourced Boultwood from behind  a unit block on boultwood st (ghetto) in Coffs Harbour when I lived there. A piece had snapped of and fallen over the fence so I took it home and propagated it. I think its a very fast grower and very handsome, more than likely a hybrid of something or other. Makes a great grafting stock, and for entheogenic purposes I can definitely vouch for its strength as a hair shampoo.

Probably Astrophytum myriostigma cv. LOTUSLAND ? I've got one named as that.
