Crested Myrtillocactus Geometrizans

Recommended Posts

Are they going around in AU? I've never seen any available, but very interested to add one to my collection. PM me if you can help, I have lots to trade.

I've never seen actual plants for sale, but "crested" myrtillocactus seed shows up on ebay from time to time.

No guarantees you will get a crest but i'd say its worth a try if you can't find a cut.

Best of luck, i've been after this beauty for a while now too, it seems highly elusive :(

If you are able to take a small piece off it and graft it to propagate that would be really cool as they seem to be very hard to find.

If they grow as fast as Trich crest's grafted onto pach you could have enough growth to cut it up and regraft a number of pieces in 12 months time.

Just a thought . :)

I am not trying to cut your grass Ambient. :wink:

I am willing to trade a small Peruvian crest ( Hellonasty ) grafted onto pach stock to anyone in au that is willing to send a plant or piece ( that is able to be grafted ) of a crested Myrtillocactus geometrizans to Ambient Forest.

I will work out the rest with Ambient. :)

Cheers

I got it last year it has got heavy but not really tall. Mind you when I got it was almost bare rooted. So probably took a while to sort its self out.

Nice. :)

There really isn't any where you could take a bit off without leaving a noticeable scar.

If it where mine I would let it keep growing as it is.

I have been lucky with my Trich's. There has been lumpy growths hanging down low and so I could knick them off without leaving a scar that you can see.

I also just chopped one small one I got into three pieces as soon as I got it and grafted all of the pieces onto Pach. :devil:

Cheers

I've heard a bit about Hamiltons over the years, definitely sounds like a place worth checking out next time I'm on the East coast. It's a shame they don't deliver.

Hamiltons definitely had a few at the last NSW Autumn show. I might be swinging past there tomorrow (or at least in the next week or two) so I'll have a look for you mate.

lol is it really a monster, or this happened from some other reason?

there seem to be at least 3 strains of myrtillocactus monsters.

one is breasty

one is cresty

and one is bit melting wax style

The cutting was from a crested plant :). Cant wait to see how this one turns out, I'll update next growing season.

I will try to take a shot of a very big plant where I got one of my cuttings.

It seems much monster and melting, but not so cresty. Maybe its similar train to yours?

^^^^

very beautiful

breast plant seems to blemish a lot

so its lovers seem to re-root and start over a lot, as I would do with that plant,

it pays to re-root a fatty cutting to startover

I have a pretty large Myrtillo Crest that I could be persuaded to take a cutting for the right price, PM me. For info of everyone it grows incredibly slow ! even in the ground mine puts on like 10-15cm a year.
