Cactus Collection

Recommended Posts

Well back to it after half a year away from the garden. Oh how I missed it :)

Not too much lost, a few infestations of the mealy in the cactus house probably due to stress from dehydration and no loving adoration.

Thought I would document and share some pics of various clones, I will update this thread as this happens. Apologies for image quality..

Some cuts from Coromandel Cacti

CC's Super Spiny

Nice cactus, especially like those perus. That Peru Martin is a beauti! I sent a message to Martin to ask for seed but he said he has never pollinated it. Need to get that clone to Aus!

Hi Solomon, great to see you posting again! Some very nice and rare ones in between. That CC bridgesii is a Tr. cuzcoensis. CC's T. spp CC4171 looks like a Tr. werdermannianus.

I think both the taquimbalensis and werdermanianus are different forms of taquimbalensis var. wilkae, both beautiful specimens

the pic with the TPC and the lichens is gold thanks for sharing

..annd your 'Quentin' monstrose bridgesii which went into the ground 3 or so years ago.

Miss you, miss your garden and miss your family too, plz give yo mama and papa hugs for me.

..and this "CC's T. spp CC4171 - Apparently came from Oreocereus weberi"

How did you come upon this info?

heya, miss you also. will have to come up and visit you soon.

the big peru you speak of is one I posted pics of recently flowering.

It has started to lean against the fence in front of it at some point and by doing so has curved and lost probably a foot in height :P

heres a couple pics of it finishing up flowering

because the peru above decided to get its lean on,

I think this one is the tallest in ground now.

The "Quentin" bridgesii is getting a bit of propagation done at the moment.

This one definitely reverts to normal growth and then back to melting/weird rib play.. Pretty typical for weirdo bridgesii.

Here is a tip
