How big can lophs get?

Recommended Posts

So, I'm mourning the inevitable loss of my largest grafted loph. It fell whilst I was away, probably with the assistance of some animal, and I've been watching it with fingers crossed it'd survive but this morning it's obvious it's done... It was about 100mm across and a real nice one, I'm bummed that I didn't take any pups from it...

 

Anyway, it's got me wondering how big a single head can get...? I'd love to see some photos from the community...

I found this fella in a garden greenhouse about 6 yrs ago. size of a basketball. I assume there's a stock underneath.

Holy crap. That loph is amazing!! I've gotta get my hands on some of that grafting stock.

 

Also - my first post here. hi everyone. I'm very interested in growing cacti in northern cold climates, and extremely cold hardy cacti. joined the forums because they seem to be some of the most active cacti forums around.

Incredible. Has been grown under a roof the whole time?
