BK14518.4

Recommended Posts

Anyone started any of these seeds? SS offered them in their catalog last year I believe, and if I remember correctly they came from a garden in Lima (I'll upload the catalog description when I get home). Mine germinated well but are too small to say much about in regards to characteristics. Just thought I'd start a thread for people to post photos/discussion of their cacti as they grow!

I know

Trichocereus pachanoi BK14518.4 San Pedro

The mother was a beautiful clone with fat, blue-green stems, deep v-notches above each areole and 1/2"+ long spines. Open pollinated, about 5% of the

seedlings show monstrose traits so far. From Pinos Trichocereus collection, Parque de las Leyendas, Lima, Peru. The original locality data is missing.

And

Trichocereus pachanoi BK14518.4

But its the same description.

I dont know the key of the description, only the first two numbers are the year.

Looks like Ben wrote the wrong collection number on my seed packet (BK14516.4), hence the confusion. Thanks for the photo huachuma, looks like a nice pachanoi!

Hey yall,

I started these up too. Still very small also but here's a pic. Snails took out a good amount of them in early spring, but I kept 9 alive. Here's six of them. I have another little pot with 3 more. One of the 3 is a mutant. Will post pics of that one when I find it.

I'd love to see pics of yours Ohlone!

Beautiful plant Huachuma!!

Mine are still tiny compared to yall's but it's looking like I've got 2 mutants out of 15 seedlings.

It's been another month and a half, and a third seedling has sprouted a freaky nipple. I'd love to see some more mature plants. I'm guessing the 5% mutant rate in Ben's description is an underestimate.
