    Brugmansia aurea 'Culebra'

    Brugs and datura are similar but where as datura are short lived plants with erect flowers, brugs can grow into massive trees and have flowers that hang downwards. This is a pic of mine. Looks a bit worse for wear but like I said, she only came back from the brink of death not long ago... And here's a pic of one in flower that I stole from the interwebs... This culebra plant is quite cool as it's kind of like a monstrose brug. In fact, Richard Schultes didn't even place it the brug genus when he discovered it, he named it Methysticodendron amesianum, but it has since been found to be a brugmansia. I'll take a couple more cuttings and send you one when they're ready Skellum.

    Brugmansia aurea 'Culebra'

    Darn! That was quick! A superb home has been found for this little lady but if there is anymore interest I could possibly take a couple more cuttings. They wouldn't be ready for a while though. Let me know. Cheers!

    Brugmansia aurea 'Culebra'

    Hi everyone! For anyone that is into their brugs I have a spare little rooted culebra cutting. Thought my plant was going to die so tried to propagate it. The mother has sprung back to life now so this little one needs a good home. Would be interested in trading for something, maybe, I'm not sure what. But if no offers come up and someone is willing to pay postage? I would fix it up but the accountant has been cracking the whip lately. Anyway, let me know. Cheers!

    Sorry for the off topic, but how old was your plant before it flowered? Was it self fertile? Forgive my researching laziness, but some first hand experience would be interesting. Cheers!

    That is magnificent sponge! You don't see many like that. I'm loving this terscheckii at the moment... Not the best pic but this thing is a beast! The girth on it would put Ron Jeremy to shame. Straight in the ground once he has some roots.

    ID please, Dawsons

    Oh yeah, I know the one. You mean this plant... I'd say definitely a terscheckii, not sure if anyone has put a specific name on it yet. Very lucky indeed to get cuts of both of them bro! Loving ya work!

    ID please, Dawsons

    Awesome looking plant mate! Seems like a terscheckii to me. Where abouts in the garden is it? Cutting from this plant maybe?...

    wanted: trich clones

    Hi Skellum. To answer your questions, apparently there is a difference in alkaloid profiles with grafted and seed grown plants. I can't say this through experience but the thought process is that a seed grown plant has more time to build up alkaloids compared to a grafted plant of he same size. The time taken to grow them is where the price difference comes in though. As for naming hybrids, the convention is to list the mother plant first, i.e. the plant with the fruit on it. So if you had a flower on Jeans that you pollinated with pollen from Cliff the resulting seeds would be labeled T. bridgesii 'Jeans' x T. bridgesii 'Cliff'. This doesn't imply that they are either Jean or Cliff but rather a hybrid of the two with Jeans being the mother. Hope this helps! Also, Rhinocerous I might be able to help you out come springtime. Get in touch with me then.
