EG´s Kickass Trichocereus Giveaway Thread! Pics please!
Evil Genius posted a topic in Cacti & SucculentsHi Guys, this is my first competition and it´s basically my way to say thanks to all my friends here who helped me throughout the years. Either by sending me seeds, positive energy or kept me motivated. You know who you are, so take this as my way of saying thanks. I´ll be giving away some of my seeds. I actually wanted to simply make a give-away thread but I did that so many times that I felt like it may be a good time to try something new. As I´d really like to see some of the plants that will grow out of the seeds, I thought a grafting competition would be a nice way to get that accomplished. What everyone will get to get started: 1 x 30 seeds Trichocereus Peruvianus from Matucana. This is fresh from 2015 and it´s the seed I have in the Trichocereus seed shop. It´s among the best Trichocereus seeds I ever had and I am so happy about it that I want to share some of them with you guys. This is confirmed Matucana seeds, that produces some of the coolest Trichos ever. Good examples of Matucana Perus are Trichocereus Rosei, Sharxx Blue, and some more. 1 x 30 seeds Trichocereus Tarmaensis This is Trichocereus Tarmaensis, which is some kind of Cuzcoensis relative and has some amazing long spines and grows into a really impressive plant. 1x 30 seeds Trichocereus Knuthianus This seed probably belongs into the Knuthianus group. That´s all I know and I am really interested to see how it will turn out. 1 x 30 seeds Trichocereus Peruvianus from the Lurin Valley. Well, this is an extremely strong growing form and I can´t wait to see your seedlings. Really rare and some of the best quality seed I ever had. Well cleaned and just very viable. The competition: I will send out 10 packs to some skilled growers on SAB. Everyone who participates should have access to some grafting stocks because the purpose of this competition is to get the coolest grafting until the end of the competition on April the 1st, 2016. The SAB members will vote the most badass pics by liking the posts. The winner is chosen by the most "Likes", though I originally wanted to make it about length. But many men will probably agree that length isn´t everything. As I´d like to see as many successful graftings as possible, I´d prefer if experienced growers participate in this competition but I will definitely not say no to someone that is not really great with grafting and just wants to give it a try. For everyone else I will probably start another giveaway in 6-12 months. Shipping will probably take up to 4 weeks, which is why I chose a longer duration of the competition. But everyone who once sent me seeds and is interested in growing some of them too, let me know. The prize: The winner gets another 300 of the Matucana Peruvianus seeds, 30 viable seeds of Trichocereus Taquimbalensis plus three different bags of my most valuable hybrid seeds. I will also showcase all of the participating plants and winners on Trichocereus.net and the Trichocereus Facebook group to give this competition some exposure. How to participate: Please send me a pm with your complete address, including the name and the country just to make sure I dont send them to the wrong country by accident. Shipping and Labels: I am sending from Germany and want to make sure that everything is correctly labeled for Australian quarantine, which is why I´ve labeled them according to their Import conditions lists: Here and here Trichocereus Tarmaensis . Echinopsis Tarmaensis Trichocereus Knuthianus - Echinopsis Knuthiana Trichocereus Peruvianus - Trichocereus Peruvianus
Trichocereus Peruvianus id please
tzorge posted a question in Cactus & Succulent IdentificationHi thanks for the acceptance, this is my first post. I enjoy gardening and bought some seeds advertised as trichocereus peruvianus. I planted about 5 and this 1 survived so far... This is about a year and a half? old. Is this a peruvianus? Thank a lot
Trichocereus peruvianus "Serra Blue" x Trichocereus pachanoi OST 90641 More grafts done today. I try to make these little showings a bit informative so others can pick things up about grafting and I also come back and show in real time how these grafts look from one month to the next. This again provides more learning opportunities for those that want to learn how to graft. The more exposure to grafting pictures and techniques the easier it becomes to spot when something is amiss. Without further ado, my little baby grafts done today. Labels made . If you've been following me... you should know how this is done by now and what comes next. So, I will instead give you a few pictures to focus on that will help with alignment of seedlings of your scion on your stock cacti. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, stretched out parafilm will keep your graft, regardless of size, from drying out and this helps prevent lifting up of the edges of your graft that you often see when humidity is low. Larger grafts may benefit from the addition of a bit of self adhesive coban to further snug down your graft. I will come back to post pictures ever so often to show how these are progressing. As always, I welcome others to post pictures of their own specimens from this cross here so I can see what I may end up with many months down the road. Suffice it to say, I am excited to see these babies mature.
Unsightly grafts done today another short picture tutorial
Inyan posted a topic in Cacti & SucculentsTPM x Trichocereus peruvianus Sharxx Blue Grafting Tutorial. Grafts done today! First, we wrap this guy with parafilm. Next, we slice into our stock. We then stretch out another inch i.e. 2.54 cm piece of parafilm to make it thin. We then drape this over our seedling/scion that has already had its bottom cut off with a nice sharp razor. After draping we gently bring down all sides of the parafilm to ensure that a secure covering is present on all sides while taking care not to tip our seedling so that the complete cut bottom portion of the scion remains in contact with the stock. The purpose of this parafilm is not just to hold the scion in place. The parafilm provides an area that will not dry out and does not require humidity which speeds the healing process. Additionally, the parafilm will pop off of its own accord after the seedling has grown sufficiently. Although, you may be tempted to pick at it like a scab on an old sore... you need not remove the parafilm at any stage. Parafilm can be used for larger grafts as well to help prevent drying out and speed up the healing process.
A beginner's first cultivation of cacti
SwedishPsychonaut posted a topic in Cacti & SucculentsHello people of The Corroboree! I want to start by thanking the administrators for giving me access to this lovely forum. I have been searching for a specific thread for beginner questions but I have not found one, feel free to move this post if you want. I am a 26 year old student living in the cold north of Sweden that recently decided to try out cacti cultivation. English is not my first language, so I apologize in advance for grammatical errors. In order to start my cacti cultivation I started searching the internet and found some helpful guides and tips. I had trouble finding a forum to discuss this kind of cacti cultivation, which is why I am posting here (feeling hopeful). I found a desert plant company in Sweden which I contacted and purchased 20 seeds of Lophophora williamsii ("Peyote"), Trichocereus pachanoi ("San Pedro") and Trichocereus peruvianus ("Peruvian Torch"). I went and purchased cacti soil, a small greenhouse and a combined thermometer and hygrometer. As I am writing this, I put the seeds into the soil 36 days ago. Below you can see a few pictures of how the cacti are looking right now: The Greenhouse Pots Peyote. Also peyote. The only San Pedro The only Peruvian torch So, after 36 days, the 20 seeds of peyote resulted in 6 small cactuses, the 20 seeds of san pedro resulted in 1 small cactus and the 20 seeds of peruvian torch resulted in 1 small cactus. I feel like its a pretty bad outcome, but this is my first time trying this. At this point, I want to try and make the ones that made it grow large! As a complete beginner I would like to ask some questions about my cultivation: 1. So far I have watered the pots and let new air into the greenhouse daily. I have not yet put any lights into the greenhouse, because the guide I am reading suggests lights first when the little lives look like small cacti. I live in Sweden, which at this time of year has very few hours of sun, so the only light the cacti are getting at the moment is from the lamp in my ceiling. Do you think that its time to install some lights? 2. The seeds that has not produced a small cacti yet, do you think there is still a chance that they will pop up? I would also appreciate if you would have any general tips on how to get my cultivation to go further! Thanks very much in advance for answers! Stay humle!
A present for my SAB family! Trichocereus seed giveaway!
Evil Genius posted a topic in Seed & Plant SwapsHi guys, I´ll be giving away some free seeds to my SAB family members here! I´ll limit this giveaway to one type to reduce the the workload for labeling and packing. I´ll give away seed bags of my new Trichocereus pachanoi type from my shop on Trichocereus.net which you can see here. There will be another giveway with Trichocereus tulhuayacensis soon. It´s a beautiful type of Trichocereus that is very variable and can be totally spineless or very spiny. The seeds are fresh from 2015 and I´ll give away one bag per SAB family member. Everyone interested, please send me a pm with the title "Pachanoi giveaway" and your address, including the complete name and the country. I know that most are from Australia but I just want to make sure I dont accidentially send it to some missionaries in Yemen. Please write your address in a way that allows me to print the address on a printable sticker, so I can process this giveaway faster! With that I mean, just write it how you want it to be written on the letter and I´ll copy and paste that. I´ll label the seeds "Trichocereus pachanoi" and declare it as a "cactus seeds" and "gift". Which it is. I cannot use a different label, but it´s a permitted import and all the seeds I send are according to AQUIS and CITES. It´s very possible that seeds are opened, but that´s totally fine as they are perfectly labeled. Shipping can take up to 6-8 weeks because I´ll have to pack these in between processing my orders and doing EG-stuff. So expect 1-2 months delivery time. If nothing shows after that, just let me know and I´ll send you a replacement. So yeah, bring on the storm. Merry Christmas SAB! bye EG

Anyone growing Trichocereus Peruvianus from Rio Lurin/Lurin Valle?
Evil Genius posted a topic in Cacti & SucculentsHi Guys, looking for pics of Trichocereus Peruvianus from the Rio Lurin/Lurin Valle in Lima. This type has been distributed in the past couple of years. I have seeds and I´d really like to know how they will look like, so I urgently need pics if you happen to grow this type. It was sold from Sacred Succulents and also some other distributers. I saw some seedlings that looked Cuzcoensis while some others looked like Peruvianus and I´d really like to know more about them. So yeah, if anybody should grow some, please post them here. I know there are a couple of pics on the internet but I am particularly interested to see how the plants that were grown from Sacred Succulents seeds look like. There are a couple of different plants with the label Rio Lurin or Lurin Valle around.
