    What did you do to your cacti today?

    Oh no mutant! I'm so sorry. You have a gift for working with cacti, don't let a set back get in the way.! I've often been inspired by your work, I hope you are able to make a speedy recovery.

    Grafts -Photos & Updates

    honestly, the text they were with didn't explain, or was literally in Arabic.Update: I chased these photos around with google search by image. I think they were on kadasgarden garden originally, but the link seems to be broken. The closest I got was a Serbian blog with a link back to kadasgarden. And it wasn't Arabic, it was Persian.

    Is the f. just for forma? As in forma cristata?

    Show off your freaks

    Wow, this is my favorite thread! Zelly, that thing is a beast! I got a t. Pachanoi crest in the mail today from Italy. Sold as trichocereus pachanoi f. crest. Just a little guy, but I like the look of it a lot. I also have what I think is a cereus peruvianus monstruosa, but that's tentative, it looks a lot like the myrtillocactus shown earlier in this thread...

    I found these pictures on the web somewhere. No labels, but I like how it breaks down the different button morphology

    Aquaculture Thread

    I just have a small set up in my basement. Sort of a test for a bigger system in the future. CHOP2, but I added a vertical gardening section to the reservoir return, inspired by legendary UK hydroponic cannabis grower Heath Robinson. I have 6 bluegill in a 50 gallon acrylic tank, feeding a 2x4' grow bed . Tanks, beds, and plumbing probably ran to about 500$ us. Another 100 or so on fish and pump. Everything has been running for about nine months now, it's a pretty amazing machine! It even survived five days without power at near freezing temps somehow.

    What did you do to your cacti today?

    I took the plastic wrap off my first Lophophora w. to San Pedro grafts. Two of four look great, and it have high hopes for the the others. I'm trying to graft a tbm pup on this one too. I don't think I was agressive enough trimming off the skin around the graft union though.

    Lophophora Wiliamsii natural fertiliser

    I'm no pro with cactus, but as I understand it it's all about the trace minerals. I use hydrolized kelp, azomite, and sometimes a pinch of Himalayan salt.

    SS01 X TPM grow log

    Amazing work philo! Thanks especially for showing off that Ecuadorean pach x psychonaught, I've got a handful still going from that batch of seed, but my biggest is probably six inches. Theyre really taking off now that I've separated them out and given them some space and fertilized them. I have one that looked like it was going monstrose, I hope so!

    My new Tatt

    awesome tat, I just found a small, 2" x 3" maybe ivory relief carving of this image in a bazaar in turkey. which is extremely odd, and there was nothing else remotely similar, or even from the same continent anywhere in any other bazaars. i think i have to go back and buy it, although i would love to know more about it. cheers! self

    has anyone seen "dirty pictures"

    I tried to find it a few weeks ago but could only come up with the trailer. Lots of boards buzzing about it since it was shown last spring, but no torrents or even copies available for purchase that I know of. If you know where to find it please let me know.

    Life between Lives

    Forgot about this thread... As far as experienced, unequivocal fact goes... I'll add that experiences fade, and what might be felt with absolute conviction one year may not feel as fresh years down the line. Does the truth of the experience fade? It seems to, it becomes a memory, another myth in our individual perpetual self-making. The key, i think, is to pick and choose which of our myths we retain and repeat to ourselves, as thats how our identity is maintained or groomed or shaped. How we tell ourselves who we are, if you will. culture does this, religion too, but I can't trust my culture or religious dogma, so I try to control my enculturation as much as I can. At least then I know what and from what I am. have a good one ~self
