  1. Hi Guys, i just found proof for the rule "If it exists, theres porn of it!" True cactus porn. Very funny. Its a pic of some guy shoving up a cactus in his ass. And not one of the ones with the small spines. But i feel like this is not the right forum for something pornographic like that. So i thought i´d ask first what yo think! And im not sure if that´s even ok with the rules? Passive and T, what do you think? Wanna see the assraping cactus? bye Eg
  2. Lets share some wisdom! I start: - Its a bad idea to unscrew the cooler of your car shortly after you drove. - Girls like you a lot more if you pretend to be gay!

    scale infestation or something else?

    This is a mix of extreme scarring after scale and neglect + secondary fungal infections. Scale insects are constantly opening entry doors for pathogens and there's plenty of fungal spots and scars that are a direct result of the scale infestation on the plants. Imo you should probably improve the conditions before you do anything else. More sun, quality fertilizer, mineral soil, regular weeding etc. These kinds of problems are directly connected to poor environmental conditions. Scale is a problem, but healthy plants should be able to suppress them.

    Help identifying cactus variety.

    Hi mate, it's a Trichocereus peruvianus.
  5. Hi mate, yeah looks nice. There are Scops that look like this. Where is it from?

    Bridge cactus disease! Help D:

    I have NEVER seen this, and I've seen a lot. I suspect it's from some kind of bug. Can you post some more pics?

    Spontaneous variegation?

    Hi mate, this is almost certainly nutrient related or sun-related. Imo it's because the plant was cut and doesn't have roots yet. The alternative is that it was kept in a too dark place for a while. Sudden onset of variegation is definitely possible, but this is probably not one. Bye Patrick

    spider mites

    Spidermites are hard to treat and you need an Acaricide to kill them for good. Make a quick Google to find a few pesticides. Personally I spray my plants with 70% alcohol and it usually reduces problems to a minimum. It doesn't kill them entirely, but it reduces their populations dramatically. Can cause burns though, so never do it in full sun.

    Hard to identify. Could be something like Trichocereus pallaralensis and Chavin de Huantar. Very spiny Peruvanoids that almost look like Trichocereus bridgesii. Definitely not Trichocereus cuzcoensis because the spines are so different.

    Is this diseased?

    It's really borderline. Personally, I think it'll probably progress in the lowest part because you can already see various infected spots. Cutting brings other risks though because it opens wounds for the pathogens. I would probably cut, but it's a thin thin line.

    Hi mate, same to you and all the rest of the SAB crew. It really was a crazy year, so let's hope it gets better. Bye Eg

    What's wrong with my cactus?

    Imo this is a fungal infection that has partially healed, but the problem is that you have no idea what's going on below the skin. Cutting is probably best.

    Validus "Anak" × Open

    I've sown this cross too. It's one of the crosses I am most thrilled about.

    Grafts from the same bag of mixed seed

    All three probably have a Terscheckii like Trichocereus as one parent. Can definitely see similarities to something like Trichocereus validus in 1 and 3. Number 2 could be something like Trichocereus atacamensis, Trichocereus pasacana etc. When breeders put all fruits and seeds from one plant into the same bag, this can be the outcome. Definitely interesting though.
  16. Hi guys, here's some photos of a plant that was described as Trichocereus fabrisii. It is a slightly more columnar version of Trichocereus schickendantzii.

    Mushroom in my cactus seedlings

    Hey mate, I wouldn't worry too much about mushrooms. Just remove the fruiting body aka the actual mushroom and leave it at that. Mushrooms and mycelium are everywhere in nature and they usually dont kill cacti directly unless they produce toxins. If you mean something like cobweb then the approach would be to remove the starting point and dry it out. But again, only in case of having a spiderweb like mycelium growing all over the container and the seeds.

    Hi mate, yes, Trichocereus peruvianus or Trichocereus macrogonus depending on the system you use. Very nice!

    Fat trichocereus to identify

    Hi mate, super nice Trichocereus terscheckii. Very close to what's commonly referred to as Trichocereus validus. Totally love it.

    cresting and montrose growth from bug attack

    Hey mate, it definitely happens relatively often on Trichocereus after injuries and insect attacks on the meristem. But yeah, can't really speak about hiw it is with Astrophytum. Pics?

    Help with i.d

    Wish I could help, but have no idea. Could be something like Crassula.

    Going going gone

    Hey mate, these belong into the Trichocereus spachianus group. There's quite a few forms and related species that belong to it. I don't think it's the well known Trichocereus spachianus clone that's around, but it's certainly close to it. Please post flower photos when it flowers. Bye Eg

    Germinating Newbie

    Hey mate, how long has it been since you planted them? At which temperatures did you have them. Personally, I sow out in a mix of Pumice, Lava and Coir and I wouldn't want Vermiculite in my sowing soil. It's not that it kills seeds, but there are minerals that produce much better results. Picking up seeds that were already sown out is possible, but very time consuming. I'd probably rather let everything dry out when nothing shows after 2 months and then start another wet cycle when the weather is hot.

    Hey mate, send me your contact email address via pm and I'll pass it on to him. Bye Patrick
