    Cactus for trade for brug cuttings

    I have some small healthy plants with roots, they have a darkish salmon pink flower, I would be willing to trade, although I'd prefer to wait until they are a bit bigger to trade though.

    Subs 2013

    A good start Founds heaps more than this. There are a few spots, nowhere near what it's going to be like in a months time, with any luck. Can't remember when I spotted them first least season (will try an remember though), I suspect they have popped up after the big rains a couple of weeks ago, hadn't checked the spots since then, before that there was none. There were some larger rotten ones, so yeah, probably been there for a bit.

    Best option for cacti potting mix

    Last season and also this one I have been using just a premium potting mix for all my Trichocereus sp. except for my TBMs. Seems to work really well for me. Had no losses or rot or anything like that. Plenty of pupping and good growth and health in general. I plan to keep doing this as it seem good and is a bit simpler (and a little bit cheaper than say cacti mix). I do amend the potting media for other cacti, also have made my own mineral based mixes for Mexican cacti etc. but that's a whole other story. It's pretty humid here and fairly high rainfall etc. coastal. To give an idea on my growing climate. It's always good to experiment though. You will always find things that work and things that work not so well and many variables in between. There's always that perfect mix, is just a matter of finding/making it (or in my case with Tricho's, not ). EDIT: Just noticed that I have reached my 1337 post count. I'm a bit of a geek, so that's pretty impressive to me. Don't know if I can bear to make another post as I will become un-1337...

    ID for cutting found roadside

    Agreed. C. peruvianus
  14. 1.Thought it was spach at first, but it's not. Looks like it might be a Cleistocactus sp. also the one to the right looks like Rebutia sp. 2. Something etiolated. 3. Reminds me of Sulcorebutia sp. though it looks a bit etiolated. 4.Mammilaria sp. 5. Haworthia sp. 6.Mammilaria cv. Arizona Snowcap. 7. Reminds me of Echinocereus sp. but not 100% 8. Variegated Opuntia sp. I forget the species. 9.As mentioned, probably Echinocactus grusonii 10.Pachypodium sp. 11.Looks like A Euphorbia sp. 12. Looks like Ferocactus robustus edit: Could be F. pilosus 13. Echinocactus grusonii kinda looks like v. albispinus, but could be just normal. Hope that helps. Some of those plants need some TLC.
