small harvest at the farm ( image heavy )

Recommended Posts

I went up to the farm last night and took a whole heap of cuttings from the Tipz macro clone. I estimate about 25 metres of goodness.

The longest tip cut is 2.9 metres. The fattest log is 50cm in diameter ( 15cm wide ) Some really beautifull blue glaucous powerful cactus right here.

Ill be putting some up for sale in the trade thread as soon as I make individual photos and prices. But thought Id show you some photos first to stir up some interest. ( I also want to clear all pending trades before committing to more ).

I have some photos of the mother plant in flower to add later, She is over thirty years old, stands at around four metres tall and pretty much just as wide at the base. A very special plant indeed ( my favourite )

thanks for lookin :)

Im in Goolwa getafix.. Pickups will be much cheaper as it is just so much easier. Pm me if you want to work something out. I wouldn't mind offloading a few of the 2m plus lengths to South Aussies.

OK - no more trade talk in this thread or i might get told off

I could always send a sly little pup over Bogfrog if It is the genetics your after. Got a few small ones around the size of a tennis ball i reckon I could get through.

very nice plant,

I never learn bro, I was in them while I was cutting and loading it all too :unsure: ( only a few spines that needed removing though )

Tempting offer but I couldn't accept I am too risqué with seed importation as it is :P

But very, very beautiful genetics indeed. Can't wait to see this mother plant.

Put me down for some seeds though if you ever get any fruit, even the ugliest trichocereus in the world could make beautiful babies with this incredible macro.

The mother plant flowers so profusely That I could easily cross pollinate it with a vast array of different and interesting trichs.

If anyone could contribute to this endeavor by sending me any pollen they have between now and next flowering season ( Im in SA ) It would be such a help.

Unfortunately old miss macro is the only trichocereus on the property and is not self fertile. I have a few trichs that should be coming into flower this year that will make interesting candidates to do some both way crosses with ( anything really glaucous, chunky, fast growing and vibrant would be desirable )

So all you experienced cactophiles with stored pollen or pollen next season - Im calling on you. Of course you will get many many seeds of the resulting hybrids in return. Obviously If anyone would like some pollen from this clone I would be happy to collect and send on. Ill put up a reminder post in trade when the time is nearer.

Anyhoo, this way I could send you guys across the Tasman a heap of seed too :)

Hey Tipz, im sure someone around will be happy to provide you with some free pollen! Bible says that whenever theres a man willing to pollinate Trichocereus, help needs to be provided asap. :innocent_n:

Great looking cuts, tipz. That color is just perfect.

What's the deal with this clone? Any kind of significant background?
