    Looking good kenny! Mine are not as advanced pup wise, but have 2 per cut just popping out.....just like yours, the fatter cut is more advanced. Camera availability is sparce for me and thus the glut of pics in various threads from me recently, all about opportunity. But I will take updated pics of the logs soon as the pics above were just after potting up. Do you (or anyone else) expect to see a colour change to a deeper green or is this a variant characteristic? In the top pic, back right corner, I have a fat scop cut from a mates plant and in the other rear corner is a std aussie scop which is dark green. I expected a colour change once I planted the fat scop as they are now both being grown with the same sun, water and fert regime....the fat scop is still that yellow green as is the Kimura! Perhaps I need to wait longer! Cheers................Bongchitis

    Any one using liquid gold?

    Yep, use it on just about everything but only dilute (piss in a 10L bucket approx) and only as an adjunct to normal fertiliser regime as your concentration varies greatly during the day and from person to person so you can't rely on it if you are growing for optimum. Seems to work well for me this way!

    Side planting is supossed to generate a larger surface area for root development and thus greater pupping, not sure if it works but all of my cuts have 2 pups growing simultaneously, growth pattern the same as for any other pup I believe....funnily (or not) on the upper most arioles as if it were planted vertically!....all of them! The super pedro threw roots first and is plump to the point of rediculous but is only just starting to pup from 2 arioles. Psycho tip cut is getting secondary spines but no real growth or plumping. Kimuras are both throwing 2 pups one a little more plump and advanced than the other, same sized pups as super. Eileen tip is growing with no plumping, almost 4 inches with little to no roots in 2 months. Eileen centre cut side plantings all pupped without roots and are really dehydrated but still growing strong and look great, there must be roots there somewhere, growing faster than any other cacti I have.

    yep, what without said. There seems to be a window where most people here operate with there cuts and I have just followed their lead with great results. Anywhere between 15cm and 40cm seems popular. Most of mine are 20cm.

    Just playing! Plan on chopping the pedro when she starts growing vertical and putting a crested cylindro-opuntia on top.....leave the Echinopsis hybrid as is and grafting a loph to the top Myrtillocactus column when it gets a couple of cm taller. It's ALIVE!

    Probably track down the owner and let know of your intentions, resize the pic and you are away. There are no copyrights on this pic, that I am sure of.

    Hahaha, these are certainly not mine, I have only been into cactus for 3 years and my collection is modest to say the least. ...and yep the crests were the highlight for me, amazing!

    Title says it all. Too many to post so here are some of the nicer specimens. Enjoy!

    Yeah the big donga similar to what trans mentioned was on my mind but the stock threw 3 pups instead of 2. Stock is Myrtillocactus Geometricans btw.
  12. I grafted mine after 1 month and did OK. Kept slipping out of place trying to put pressure on so I came up with this. The pereskiopsis keeps pupping though and it is pissing me off.

    zygo cacti as graft stock

    YES! and it wasn't very succesfull....well actually not at all for me. The vascular ring is small with no flesh surrounding it and the plant is not strong/thick so it can't hold up any more than a seedling. I found it hard to put pressure on without the zygocactus stock flexing and fucking me around. Could try an older and stronger section I guess but that reduces the chances of success. A big one with little lophs etc would look great but there are heaps better stock out there as mentioned in previous posts in other threads recently.

    Any Regular Sydney (ish) meets

    Hi all, Title speaks for itself. My job and family make it very difficult to travel very far/long and $$$ are always a problem. Also, I have never met anyone on the forums and I would love to do so. A PM to some of the known Sydneysiders..."lets hook up" seems a little wierd and I am not that 'outgoing'. So, if there are meets in existance that I am unnaware of, could you let me know or otherwise shoot me a PM if you are at all interested in meeting another forum member. I know it sounds odd but short of setting up my own trip, only for no-one to come, I wasn't sure how to approach it so I thought that I would put this out there. Cheers and thanks all.............Bongchitis

    ...here comes another one not like the other one do do do doot doot doot: My Ballzac and Noodle are a bit red My cough and Bongchitis are killing my head I need a Rev up with or without drugs, that would be Ace Perhaps down a strangebrew, call medicinedan or a passive prod in the right place.

    My first

    I was going to say the same thing klue. Long and skinnies usually meant that I didn't have enough humidity and light. Look at the babies coming up with the darkened caps and the absence of a bulbous base.....I think they are dehydrated abhorts.

    HBWR in SW Sydney

    I was growing one for a year and seemed to be going well, over-wintered in a pot and then exploded when planted out. Some days it seemed like 30cm growth a day!.....then last winter it was all over! Gets to negative figures and frosts bad where I am though.

    Is the avatar not a negative of a mushy pic? R.E.S.P.E.C.T ..............give it up!

    Any Regular Sydney (ish) meets

    Yeah no doubt there has been meets, but I have only had the fire in the belly to put myself out there in the past couple of months due to a major life change, so I hadn't really been looking until very recently I guess the difficulty is that Apoth, Andy and the other organisers are well known and respected here and thus assured of a response due to this and the success of previous meets....this is hardly a carrott I can dangle. I will keep my eyes open from now on. It is good to know that the SYD meets exist.......of course they do!.....I just wasn't aware for whatever reason. Thanks for the link MORG. I hope to meet some of you soon at the next SYD meet then! Cheers................Bongchitis

    Cactus cuts to The Netherlands

    Does anyone see the need to verify reshroomED's credibility? ..........speaks for itself mate! Anyone who has been here for any amount of time it seems would have nothing but praise. Me personally, well I can only say that this is one honest/generous individual.

    The end of the american empire

    I can't even comprehend what it would take for a country so large and advanced to pull up one day and say "right now we use metric". I guess the recent conversion to Euros is a little analogous but that is one simple conversion $ -->Euro. Changing a whole measurement system at this point in USA's life has the ability to affect the rest of the world for decades and every day that it is put off, it just gets harder!
