There isn't a lot of diversity as far as Trichocereus go and the owners don't seem too interested in pollinating them. The one odd plant we found appears to have grown by its own means.

Thanks for the photos! I don't think there's anything like this in New Zealand (yet... hehehe).

And also, I think those are wasps centipede, in which case - trying to score honey could be dangerous. ^^

I have seen an indoor private collection that boasts an even larger T pasacana and Saguaro in Hunua

Like Like Like Like Like!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for posting them, Interbeing! That really made my day. Any chance to get seeds or pollen of that awesome longespined Trichocereus Monster that is shown on two of the pics? The one on DSC01499. It does look like a truly unique species.

Hey does JB come from this site too? I believe it is a bridgesii of sorts possibly a hybrid. I have some seeds of this from PD and they are twice the size of everything else I am growing.

Love that one too :drool2: Pretty sure thats the terscheckioid that PD crossed with a Psycho0

post-5030-0-05626600-1332189335_thumb.jp

Probably have to wait till late spring to get some pollen of that one but I'll see if I can find some terscheckii x Psycho0 seed for you.

Thanks mate, Cactus Country in Strathmerton.

DSC01495 is a J2 and I have no Idea on the other, I don't even think It's a Tricho :wacko:
