    Dear Christ...I opened a box of opuntia compressa as I was told it was better stock than the wild spineless I was using...I am fucking covered in glochids and they are spreading and multiplying....I have thrown my cloths away but the couch just fucked my dog up...do I have to throw the couch away too? Fucking terrorism..... this much agony needs to result in super powers or death...no middle ground... I am going to have my wife pick up duct tape on the way home and mummy me then un-mummy me. Dear G-d why?!?!
  2. I stay JUST ahead of where I need to be on pereskiopsis. I really should start a bank but I have plans for every one that is currently rooted. LOL Even my cactus did stuff in the cactus garden today. Cliff started his own garden.

    'Clone' names

    In a world without clone names the chaos would be worse. I remember a plant I saw once and now want it to breed with a plant I have. "Hey does anyone have a cut of that knobby pachanoi?' "Which one?" "I think EG posted a picture of it once." "This one?" "No it was knobbier." "This one?" "No." I can't imagine as a collector living in that world. Pure frustration.
  5. The Maldonado that some were calling Pachanoi doesn't look Pachanoi now. Does it still look bogan?
  6. Looking for two pachanoi cuts. One Yowie and one Landfill. Hit me up if you have the inside track. Thanks!
  7. saved a seedling that was mushy at the base by grafting to an opuntia pad.

    Yeah I started with tweezers but there were just so many and I am half yowie just covered in wool. duct tape helped on the smooth parts of my arms but i am going to sleep on my back tonight and go get waxed in the morning.

    How are all these things in my chest? I never rubbed the cactus on my chest...

    AHAHAHAHAHAHA Okay I needed that. Cedar still has something in his back left paw but that's the only thing he is favoring right now. I will duct tape his pads when the wife gets home with the tape. I don't know why I got greedy. I am getting fine results with my current root stock. "The Torment of Trevyn" a Greek tragedy in three parts extolling the virtue of being satisfied with what you have.
  11. The claim: The cactus: Those parrot beak areoles are freakin' me out man! Looks too fat to be a cereus though right? What is it? Echinocereus maybe?

    Poppy Seeds - retracted

    I have an heirloom papaver somniferum cultivar that has been in the family for generations. It's called "flowerbox poppy" because it tops out at 2' tall. Sort of a bonsai poppy. They are legal to grow in the states, but I would get cuffed if I were making laudanum out of them. The harvest would be dismal as well as the poppy heads are about the size of a quarter. I put it in this thread for educational purposes only.

    Ogunbodede´s Pachanoi

    Is this cut available from anywhere? Edit: Finally scored one of these on 9/17/2017

    Little Cliff sale - sold.

    Oh yeah. Godless and Mu have both sent me love so I know the drill. This is a good cause. If this is open to the U.S. I was going to suggest cutting that 42cm in half for the same price. That way I get to contribute to the cause, save a ton on postage, and get a community cut with a ton of meaning behind it.

    Little Cliff sale - sold.

    Yanks invited to this round? I will pay the extra for postage. If so I will take the 42cm mid cut.
  17. I need somebody in my life that looks at me the way @Evil Genius looks at forum posts.
  18. Yeah I really like the pictures where the areoles are sporting a "fan" of spines like a turkey's butt. Old growth on the rs0004 looks like that, but online i was only finding tip pics. Heh... tip pics sounds dirty.
  19. Okay so this is now a defunct species and now simply a horticulture variety, am I correct? It seems even at that level, what is being horticulturally called macrogonus goes far afield from where it started. German seeds produce something that looks like a peruvianus from Rio Lurin as pictured by @Evil Genius with spines that curl back on the plant. Getting your hands on anything that matches the original description is pretty much relegated to getting clones, and even then, I have no idea how "Big Mac" fits that bill at all. I think the direction of my hobby is going to be focused on acquiring classic examples and producing seed between them. I will grow some out sure, but I really would love to make available "classic" macrogonus seed. So I have RS0004, which other cuts have similar traits? Needle thin spines, a crowded crown around the areol, main spine pointing down, etc?
  20. I have no plan to revive a defunct species, or even enter into the argument of if it is or is not a species separate from t. peruvianus. But several vendors sell seeds, and what the seeds grow don't match either the available/historical clones, or the original collection descriptions. And they could. Even if the term is just a horticultural cultivar, that's cool with me. I don't have a horse in that race. @sagiXsagi This is an RS0004: Is it "macrogonus or peruvianus? I believe the conventional wisdom is that it (and all macs) are peruvianus. Maybe in the same way cordobensis is scop? **shrug**

    Cliff mother plant: rescue plan

    @Halcyon Daze may have the best plan of attack. You may have to fund this with a huge cutting sale and grab the stump for resurrection. And if you do that, I think the community would appreciate updates on the post-move status enough that it would be a stickied thread. It has community feel all over it.

    Shipping cactus cuts to the US. Legal?

    I have received a few cuts from Oz and no problems. All three things I tried to buy from Thailand however, were each, in turn, confiscated, so I am 0 for 3 there.
  23. I agree. Not a treasure map to an exact location of an exact plant but a region with samples of what forms of T. Peruvianus appear here to here. There are stabilized swarms of hybrids and what have you, that as of yet, we haven't quite gotten a handle on. Seeing the whole thing in one CSI type picture might help us make better sense on where everything came from and maybe even better identify instances of T. Pach migrating through human trade. The possibilities seem endless.
  24. What am I looking for here E.G.? From the top down view I mean. Take this cut for example. Was sold as T. Santaensis but it looks a little Scoppy and a little pachy to me. Or is it just a five ribbed pachanoi?
