Okay, I am reactivating this thread with a new giveaway and grafting competition. This time it´s Trichocereus santaensis (T. huanucoensis belongs to this group of plants).

 

 Trichocereus santaensis & Trichocereus scopulicola competition

Ten participants in this competition, I will provide some free Trichocereus santaensis and Trichocereus scopulicola seeds for grafting. All participants need to be ready to graft when the seeds arrive (in about 4 weeks) and I will pick the two best look grafts and gift their owners a free copy of my SAN PEDRO book. Members that cannot graft due to whatever reasons can participate, but it´s really a big disadvantage and if you enter please post some photos in the future. I really prefer graftings, but I won´t turn someone away who can´t graft. The purpose of the competition is also to introduce new members to the world of grafting. I am sure you´ll love it, even if you´re not very good at it. You live and learn.  
Value 88 Euro
(shipping costs of 15 Euro need to be paid though).  SAN PEDRO GROUP Final Cover.jpg

 

so guys, all participants get in touch with me through pm and send me your shipping addresses. The competition will run for six months and the sooner you start the better. If the participants need more time it can be prolonged, but only as a worst case scenario. To participate, make a posting here and send me a pm with your address. Worldwide of course. 


Good luck!

Fantastic! I'm super excited for your new giveaway. I've yet to grow out any t. Santaensis but love seeing your pictures of these beauties. My warmer weather is just around the corner, time to get the grafting stock ready :lol:

@Alpineswift Well you don´t need to send me anything, apart from the postage for the book in case you are one of the two winners of the book. I definitely take Paypal for the shipping costs. To participate just send me your address and I´ll send you the seeds for free. The competition is mostly grafting, but if you don´t have any stocks you can just sow them out normally. It´s a big disadvantage in regards to the time though.

Hey guys, great to see this post getting some traction. I will get in touch with everyone who sent me messages but it´ll take a few days. Got a very busy weekend at the shop, but will catch up on that asap. I´ll try to send seeds to everyone who really intends to grow them and post photos, so maybe I will send more than ten. Just make sure to post some photos later on, because T. santaensis is rare as hell and I´d love to see them grow on the long term.

Counted 10 posts above, so if there's no spots left that's cool, otherwise I'd love to get in on this.

Yes, happy to include you as well. So I will get the seeds shipped within the next few days and you can start right away when you got them. Good Luck! :)

Awesome! Thanks EG.

 

Got some pereskiopsis cuts put in soil today. The two in the upper left are prior grafts. They're both emergency grafts (TBMC and a scop hybrid) and not for this competition.

a question though, what are the criteria for winning?

 

length? girth? how creative you get with it?

All seeds are sent. Some did not send their address, so please send it over if you haven´t already. Also, I think I have 4 extra seed letters packed that I am happy to send out. The first ones that send me their address will get them.

I pick the ones I like the most. Simple as that. Length and girth and interesting, but we tried that last time and it didn´t really work out the way I hoped. So yeah, would love to see nice photos and the ones that I like the most will win. Will also factor in likes and other people´s opinions. The best ones will win and if it´s a head on I will just randomly pick someone.
