Photos from Cactus and Succulent Society expo

Recommended Posts

Sadly I i don't think I saw a single tricho there.  Lophs are out of the question! Edit: I take that back after looking at my first photo again!

 

But still some interesting specimens for your viewing pleasure...

What tricho do u see there SayN, is it just that TBM?
Is someone driving around actually bothering to enter a 3 segment TBM in a cactus expo/competition(?)...  Christ... These clowns need the corroboree to come crash their next expo.

Looks pretty disappointing overall dude (not that id really know). Where the fuck was it held, Rooty Hill RSL(?) Looks like a budget venue, sporting an anti-climatic display.
I reckon more than half the cacti SABers could put on a better/more impressive show than that (maybe I'm being harsh). Is this a regular thing you go to, or a first & last time thing, lol?

I can't visibly ID your photos though (lack of knowledge), maybe they're rare as fuck...  Some of them look like Bunnings Multicoloured graft specials (e.g. cheap n' nasty).
I'd take fat TBM bushes and huge tricho stands, crests and lophs anyday over those rock melon looking bulbous grafts entered there, I'm probably just somewhat ignorant, and bias toward what i like though.

Cheers for sharing though mate.

Especially since it not even named 'Skellum' like this masterpiece

^ Boi you're making my knickers sticky.
What is that munted unit - a TBM also? or no

EDIT: Guessing not a TBM spines & colour don't look right & the tip of the nuggets look different
Is that, the seed grown 1 ribbed  'skellum'  from your gallery a few months back?      noice.    :wub::blush:

It is the Cactus and Succulent Society of NSW - and just by chance they hold their 'meet' at a local nursery.  There were no exploding cacti or dancing girls - it was pretty sedate for 8am - you would have been disappointed.  I thought some of the monstrose stuff (and that Crassula) were quite cool.  They do also sell a lot of cactus (for two hours) and in the past i've purchased lophs (for $10) and tbm's and seen trichos - but it's mainly just succulents now and stuff i'm not interested in purchasing.  Its actually a fucking madhouse - like a market - too many vendors, lots of people (wow, Asians really love succulents?) and not nearly enough space.  Bargains?  I guess.  Anyway, there are worse ways to spend a Saturday morning.
