Thanks for all your kind words

I have put some names up in the first post I will try and do the rest shortly

I love the fact I can see changes in my cacti all the time pups popping out and some of the growth rates are amazing

The retic for me is a must have it’s not the neatest around but it was free and it works really well

The drippers are a commercial product that I acquired second hand (got to love family in the horticultural biss)

I normally run 2 - 4 drippers per pot to get a good coverage

The retic runs 2 - 3 times a week plus one day hand watered with ferts

I’m going to sow a heap of different seeds over the winter and im building up grafting stocks so I think my addiction is well in check :blink:

Cheers

Ok the big blue Peruvianus is known as the big blue sucker :lol:

The cutting was from a Perth member who I haven’t seen on here for a while

This is a quote from one of his posts about this plant which he believes came from the SAB store

I cannot find the name for. It was offered for sale ~ 3-4 years ago and it was a little more $$ due to the degree of blueness that the clone develops - I'm pretty sure it had a feminine name. Perhaps Torsten could shed some light of the subject in place of my shambolic labeling system?

At this stage I am going to continue to propagate this plant so I should have some pieces available next year

I will try and contact the original grower and see if he can make any more cuts available

Cheers

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!

This most of my trich's I will post photos of the rest of my cacti in the next few days

They haven't been looked after to well this year as you can see by the weeds and most could be a bit fatter.

Most were supposed to go into the ground this year but I am running out of time now so they might have to wait until next season
