FOR SALE - T. macrogonus "Bendy"

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, just lettin you know I've got a couple of good lookin T. macrogonus mid-cuttings up for auction over at Swap N Sell

These cuts come from a very hardy specimen, only gettin morning sun due to being planted right between a shed and an enormous T. knuthianus/kubianus plant. Some arms had actually grown into the knuthianus bush and popped out the other side - this guy just keeps goin and going!

As for the name Bendy thats more of a reference to this guy's home, as opposed as singling it out as a unique strain of macrogonus, not to imply this one aint in a league of its own though (yet to bioassay) :P

Strike rates for seed from this same plant are up in the 90+ percentile, so you can bet on good genetics. PM if you'd like some seed (pretty fresh, just a couple months) from this one too.

If you'd like anymore info on the cuts or their mother ask away :)

If there is one cactus that confuses me is macrogonus...how can macrogonus have such large spines and some have such smaller ones like I mean a lot smaller...surely that cactus is Cuzcoensis is it not or can macro come in 2 varieties... :huh:

Looks like a macro to me :)

Basing your ID of a plant by comparing a tiny tip cutting to old growth logs is gon do your head in Hunab. Like has been said here a million times, the same plant can look completely different depending on growing conditions.

Yeah I kinda was hoping you would come and set things straight about that but perhaps this aint the thread to do it in...your post in the "how to identify a macrogonus" thread post 18 is yours pass and your cactus look typically like my cutting...I guess I should stop trying to correctly ID this one for a while because Gilligan sent me a beautiful 30cm cutting of a macro and the fuggen spines are like 100mm long and really white...I was like WTF...how this be the same as my small cutting which in it's defense is a cutting off a long arm...anyways I'll shut up now...sorry for the mini hijack guys..as you were. :blush:

Im still unsure of the correct ID of the plant i posted pics of in the macro thread hunab (is the plant i label J1 btw), it was more just to show how different conditions can affect a plants appearance.

What size were the flowers, any photo's? If it has regular sized Tricho flower's it doesn't deserve the title really.

There were a couple flowers around summertime and yes they did seem a bit smaller than regular tricho flowers, about 70% of the size of wat you'd expect from a run of the mill pedro. If i can dig up some photos soon i will post them up

I second that mate got 3 Rosei that look like different cacti but it is just growing conditions that cause the variation. Cacti are like people they adapt to their environment

Dear Interbeing,  :worship:

 

I know it was a long time ago, what do you remember about this clone if anything?

I find myself living very close to another suburb colloquially known as 'Bendy' down here on the South Coast, NSW.

I sometimes pass a cactus garden in Bendy, I wonder if this clone come from this suburb and potentially this garden I've seen, can you confirm?

 

I obviously don't plan on doing a 'Change' style robbery (the poooor cunt :()  so don't freak out,

I just want to door knock, the current owners might not even be the same people, has been nearly a decade.

 

Impressive plant none the less.

Hi Skellum,

 

This one came from Dawson's in Bendigo, Victoria :) Most likely the same clone as the macrogonus from the Field collection.
