That looks like an angry green slug. Awesome looking! Haha. Looks like a crest to me.

Definitely looks like it's attempting to crest, reminds me of a zombie fist coming out of the ground :D

If one keeps pachanoi monsters long enough its pretty obvious they are going to crest eventually - or at least I do not have a pachanoi monster which is non-cresty.

Talking about the clone that indeed goes columnar from time to time, some of their best times is when they change from crest to column: then you can get columnar cuttings , root them, and then eventually they will crest much higher than base ground like usually.

All in all this is going to be prettier and prettier whether it crests now or later. (my bets is its gonna make 2 seperate crests from the top)

Thanks Dreamwalker , they aren't that uncommon where I am , but I would kill the have an abundance of oz clones make their way to the states.

The grass is always greener I suppose.

another crest of mine that I have promised not to cut. note the 'reptile' marks at the center.

P1110233.jpg

this is a myrtillocactus monster that I suspect is different from the commonest crest form

P1110226.jpg

P1110228.jpg

and this is supposed to be the crest, but its different when grafted on a myrti... we will see when some degraft grows more....

P1110234.jpg

and this is obviously the crest form

P1110237.jpg

a columnar pachanoi monster

P1110235.jpg

mostly newcomer monstrosities

mutant, whats the cactus at the top of the pic below? I like the way it transitions from normal to knobby growth.

My first loph graft that was smashed by mites and mealy bug looked like it was starting to through a crested pup about 2 or 3 months so here's how she's progressing.

the cactus in the monvillea picture is a SAB sourced cuzcoensis (came as pachanoi, got a KK number, something like 2150) that I have called the "anus plant" (the first termination looked a lot like an anus, it still does) else where, this clone terminates a tip or two some times, but with time it proved it does not maintain the monster growth for long , additionally when in the monster mode it goes so slow that inevitable it pups normal growth from lower areoles.

Once I rooted a monster limb, after a long wait, the terminated tip woke up eventually and it went on growing from there. Still, and interesting cactus, and its got nice reddish/orangeish spines, uncommon for cuzco.

there, I found a thread with some more pics of the same clone

Thanks mutant.

That is a really neat specimen, even if the monstrose growth is short term. I recall seeing your other photos of it before. I'm not a huge cuzco fan, but I'd definitely add one of those to my collection.

Hey naja naja, is that diatomaceous earth on your plants? The powdery stuff.

By the way, that's an awesome melted wax philocacti. Looks pretty old. My big cutting just started growing. Should put on some nice growth this year.
