Nitrogen´s Connoisseur hybrids - pics and seed giveaway

Recommended Posts

I have been away for nearly a week and on my return I had that magical envelope waiting for me. Nitrogen your a legend, what an amazing thing you have done. The world of trichocereus and trichocereus breeding and growing has forever been effected by what you have done and I take my hat off to you mate!! I like my new alias as well, Sylvester Frankenheimer! I am getting these babies planted today, have never been so excited to sow a seed in my life. I have already been in contact with my people in the states and my people put me in touch with your people and I shall be sending back a little something to your personage in the near future. Thank you dude! I'm off to hunt some Peres down....

Update, all 6 crosses have ~100% germination rate

post-6382-0-29156500-1448970512_thumb.jp

Edit - there's a huge difference when germinating fresh seeds from fellow collectors like, nitrogen zelly ect and seeds from big companies like Koehres. At one point I started to doubt my seed germination skills. Now that I germinated good fresh seeds from both nitro and zelly (100% germ rate), I advice noobs to make sure they have good seeds before questioning their germination methods and soil mix).

Just got around to sowing mine today. I gave some seeds away to another worthy dude as well who missed out. Can't wait to see what they turn into! I'm propagating peres like mad to do plenty of grafts, but I'll be leaving lots on their own roots.

Thanks again nitrogen. I noticed that the LJ x sharxx blue seeds took a couple of days longer than the rest to germinate. Has anyone else noticed the same thing?

I purchased seed from zelly after you had posted yours, zellys seed arrived no worries, unopened.

Hoping the nitro seed was opened and is just delayed.. very sad to not see them yet :(

That's funny because for me, the sharxx crosses are popping like crazy and the others are lagging behind!

Yah my LJ crosses are still lagging behind.. TPM x SB and the reverse are doing awesome though..

--

Per letters not arriving - I mailed them to every person who PM'd me an addy. However, I know of one case where customs nabbed them for being E. scop rather than T. scop, which of course is absurd. So, they may not arrive for everyone, which is a pity. I will not personally be sending seed out to people whose package did not arrive.

However in the big picture there are now an abundance of these seeds in the community, and I'll infuse them in various ways over time if need be - everyone will eventually have happy little mutant trichos trying to take over their gardens :)

I know fuck all about Australia Post but I do know that xmas time is pretty bloody busy at post offices. Hopefully all the missing letters are just mixed up with the shitloads of christmas cards and stuff also getting delivered right now and will turn up in time for a nice xmas surprise.

As for my seeds, got pretty much 100% germination except for lumberjackus x TPM which is taking a lil longer but getting there nonetheless.

Thanks again Nitro!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Much praise to our God of the Freaks!!!

Thanks for your efforts mate. I assume mine are caught up somewhere too.. A mate got a letter from you and he said t cost you $10usd to post it. So at ~50 letters that's a mere $700-800aud dollars just to post these out. That's a huge effort, great work! If my letter arrives I hope I can read the return address cos you'll be getting a gift in return! And even if it doesn't can someone send me nitros addy so I can gift him anyways

howdy mates, Santa stopped by today & gave me a couple more bags of his seeds to disperse, so if you are on Nitrogens 2015 giveaway list & didnt receive your seeds, post in this thread to that effect & then send me a pm & I can hook you up with his # 1, 2, 3, 4, & 6 as well as 2 others he created, P0 x SB & P0 x LJ.

atm, this offer is only good for the ppl who were on his list & havent received his seeds.

The seed code is as follows:



1. Lumberjackus x TPM



2. Psycho0 x TPM



3. Sharxx Blue x TPM



4. TPM x Sharxx Blue



5. TPM x Huarazensis



6. Lumberjackus x Sharxx Blue

Once this is hashed out, for any remaining Nitro seeds, I'll open up the Nitrogen giveaway to all current active sab members who were not on his list.

Hey Zelly, is it correct to assume that I would be aware if I was on Nitro's giveaway list? I'm pretty sure that I'm not on any sort of list, but I have strong interest in these seeds.

Indeed.. I had no confirmation I would be receiving any seeds but would absolutely love to zelly. I'm just assuming I was meant to as nitro mentioned he sent em to everyone who sent him their details.

Peace and thanks
