  2. hey we just brought this cool as crest recently, it looks kinda trichy but who know it really could be anything. i know it might be a long shot but has anyone seen one like this before and might know what it could be? take a guess? http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/?saved=1

    is anyone good at identifying crests?

    hmm. areole grafting would certainly b a gud skill to have but the sort of this i guess you would need to be shown by someone who can do it succesfully, i have a mate who has a dream to aereole graft spirals of lophs round a pedro. which would look too awesome. stairway to heaven haha.

    My collection 2009 - 2012 (updated)

    i love your azureocereus hertlingianus ( super spikey blue guy in the corner behind the red pot in the very first picture ) they are so beautiful. i was gutted i missed an 80cm one on trademe, went for $1.50!! funny how some cacti seem to be worth less once they are at the difficult to handle stage. great start to a collection, the bug has certainly bitten your ass!

    indoor trichocereus?

    haha oh dear that would have been fun ;) the problem is you never quite notice how bad its getting till the time comes. cacti collecting has made me want to put some roots down somewhere and never flat again (aged 19 lol)

    indoor trichocereus?

    keep them at your parents house if they will let you, we got too excited with cacti collecting while living in a flat.. moving house was a BITCH

    Grafting freek

    holy shiznit you really are a grafting freak, good shit! i am most jealous of your aztekiums, pelecyphora and ariocarpus from the german nursery, do you happen to know if pelecyphora take well to grafting, we have one that might be on the choping block one day. i am very impressed. 10 points.

    How old would this be?

    oh yeah definately worth going for a wander! i'd say the cereus would be 80-100 too its got some major density

    Cactus ID

    botanical gardens dont really seem to look after there cacti in nz ae, the dunedin one is a shocka they havent seen a drip of water in donkeys ears, i feel obliged to water my favourites whenever i visit the glasshouse. poor guys. and that really yellow one that someone said might be a really undernourished macro - my boyfriend has one just like that - same yellow stunted lookingness, i will post a pic of it growing healthy if it ever starts to. kea

    loph flower & fruit

    you didnt get scammed bro, single headed lophs are waaay cooler than caesapitose, imagine it in 20 years if it is still a single head.

    our cacti

    ooh yeah its just too good having a courier knowck on your door in the morning with PRESENTS! and then the mornings when you dont get anything become like awwwwwww i have brought a few caudis and had about 4 of them die i'm not sure why they just seemed to turn to mush in the middle, i'm guessing too cold or too wet. i read recently that bushmen in areas where they grow wild chop up caudis and cook them like potatoes. cant imagine they'd be too yummy
