  1. Think I might have an identical plant to #1, never really figured out what it is but by god it's got some serious spines!

    Sounds good to me for both, everything is still sitting where it was yesterday ready for a pickup. I'll shoot you's some PM's with an address.

    Free to a good home

    Due to it's "grows like crazy" tendency I've had to prune back my M. geometrizans and now have a few meters of stems laying about. I only "need" one large plant and don't graft or grow from seeds so these bits are totally useless to me and will end up binned if there's no taker. Unfortunately with the nature of these bits (Australia Post would likely ban me from ever shipping anything again!) there's just no way I can ship anywhere so the happy recipient would have to pick them up in person from Sydney's west...St Clair to be more precise. Leftover bits freshly cut, a tad skinny at the moment due to lack of rain. First come/first serve!

    So, what am I?

    Cheers. So it's more of a classic pach rather than a PC clone, nice to know. As for broad ribs, down the bottom of the plant there's hardly any ribs to speak of, it's all plump to the point of splitting. Last decent rain event saw it rip apart nearly a foot long beween some ribs! @Master B: next flower I get I'll harvest the stamen's and try to dry it out for you. Wife ought to be able to nick a specimen cup from work that I could pop it into. ;)

    Columnar Flower Buds. Got some ? Post them here.

    Finally broke out in full bloom tonight, thought it was last night but walked outside a little while ago and the smell was unmistakable!

    So, what am I?

    Always thought this as a PC Pach but not so sure anymore after the reactions to yesterday's flower bud post. It's a plant from Hamilton's bought somewhere back in 2011 and has been in the ground since 2012, moved once when I expanded my outdoors patch. So, ventured out this afternoon after work to snag a few more shots of it, but first for the "wayback" machine and some older shots. Tip growth in 2012 First, and only pup, in February 2013 Same pup in June 2013 Bit of hail lovin, didn't face it at all Now for the new shots from this afternoon. The whole plant, don't mind the weeds...they are on my to do list Bud closeup New spine growth from older areoles Some areole "porn"

    Columnar Flower Buds. Got some ? Post them here.

    To be honest I have no real idea what it's heritage is, picked it up a few years back from Hamilton's as a less than a foot long cutting. Didn't do much while in a pot but once out in the ground it's gone nuts with growth. Seem to suck up any moisture it gets, to the point that it splits badly down by the base. See if I can hustle up some more shots, anything in particular I should focus on? And pollen can be done, never collected it before so would need some pointers though. Edit: here's some more shots of it, both old and new ones from this afternoon, tossed them up in their own topic for good measure. http://www.shaman-australis.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=42276

    First ever buds on this PC, bit of a surprise it's taken this long as it's a good 9 foot tall by now.
  9. Think I can class my Azure hunt as "complete", found a very friendly little fella in a local reserve that let me in close.

    What did you do to your cacti today?

    Unfortunately not, though I have high hopes it should start setting flowers soon as it's big enough. As to size, it was a tiny little seedgrown thing when I put it in the ground 5 odd years ago, since then it's been left to grow hardly without any help from me.

    What did you do to your cacti today?

    Generally ignored them, the whole collection has seen abit of neglect of late unfortunately. Monster in the making? Finally started putting on some height rather than just get fat, 10 inches tall and between 6-7 inches in diameter. Doubled it's rib count over summer. Likely a victim for some pruning come spring, getting way to spread out to safely reside in a pool area.

    I'd be looking at something Eriosyce for the first one. Second feels like a Mam though I can't say what one.

    Mammilaria identification thread

    First one has me stumped, though I do have a very similar plant on the bench without tags. Second 2 I'd say are different types of elongata
