Yep. A pachenoi (or Pachenot?/PC). Pretty sure i put it in the ebay finds thread at the time.

 

I will say that the person working behind the counter was a motherly type in her 50s who winked at me and told me it was an awesome cactus.... i either passed up an easy root or (more likely) people really like cacti.

I used to find Hamiltons Trichs at various North Coast Bunnings, but it has been over 3 years since I have seen any...

they do sell good plants, but the distributers pamper and grow them too fast/much, so you get plants which carck it once you plant them out. there plants like a lot of professional nursery plants lack hardiness.

 

they don't pay well there stuff, and many of there workers, fall for me in the eeh? category.

eeh? means like at maccas, when I order "one cheeseburger please" the stuff goes, " eeh?"

one cheeseburger please, reply goes eeh? my record is 4 times getting an eeh?

and as some of you know, my accent isn't that strong, and I know more words in English, than those low class workers.

this happens only at Bunnings, mc donalds and other big brand outlets, not happy jane...

Scored a sweet Peruvian that was a nice find at decent price, and then was no end to the scop mongels cheap as there for a while at my local.

 

Like tarenna been a while since I seen anything of note, they were killing more than selling them though:lol:

Haven't seen any trichos for ages now. I did grab a nice bridge, peru and big cordobenseis back in the day. Still have them all.

Bunnings do seem to stock less Trichs than they have in the past. My best find there has been a TPSM. 

 

Hamilton's have stopped supplying Bunnings. If you're in the Western Sydney area I'd reccomend checking Hamilton's out. I got a rooted ~25cm peru crest there for $25!
