reminds me a little of Echinocereus rigidissimus, always thought they looked like they had bugs crawling all over them :)

Wow. I had no clue about the alkaloids. I just was looking through my new illustrated cacti dictionary and saw it and wanted to grow some. Thanks for the extra info. Now I want that echinocereus as well. Lol. They look like they have centipedes on them.

Turbinicarpus pseudopectinatus................looks almost identical to P. aselliformis..........I could go on posting pic's all night....................T.p. had some nice monstrose forms too.............

Yeah, it's actually also known as Pelecyphora pseudopectinata. I reckon It's much easier to grow and more disease resistant compared to P. asellliformis and has much more beautiful flowers too.

Ah wow! I think I've got one of those! It was sold to me as T. pseudopectinatus (rare form) :) never really made sense till now.

EDITED BY MODERATOR! NO DISCUSSION ABOUT POTENCY FFS!

Huh? The rules: I will not allow discussion on potency of any mescaline bearing cacti, nor on methods to increase potency, or for that matter any questions on injestion of such substances. There is one exception and that is the linking to or discussion of scientific literature on the subject. The removed section was a reference to ethnobotanical texts which specifically said that peyotillo did not contain significant amounts of mescaline and that any medicinal effects must be caused by other, non-mescaline components. So it seems to follow the rules - what am I missing here? Are we just not allowed to say the word "mescaline", even when it's prefaced by a "does not contain..."? Sorry to derail, I'm just not clear what happened back there. Can anyone clear this up for me? EG?

Sorry if this is a bit off topic, but I have said this before. Open and honest discussion about relevant topics needs to be allowed to occur. I do not disagree with the rule, but do not believe in the systematic use of the delete key regardless of the situation is the answer either. For those who saw what it said, it was clearly relevant to the information on this forum. I do not believe Dreamwalker in any way intended to encourage everyone to seek this cactus for thrills. Now this information has vanished, and leaves even more confusion around the topic. How are we supposed to further this discussion now, I am sad to know that it will probably die; are you?

I have some of these growing from seed as well. P. pseudopectinatus, P. aseliformis, P. valdezianus and Echinocereus rigidimus. The pelecyphora grow pretty slow.

One of my seedlings was an albino so I grafted it to pereskiopsis

Here it is....showing it's pigment-less white color after it was totally red for the first few weeks

Awesome philocacti!!! Crazy lucky. I need to graft some of mine. They grow super slow. Especially the aseliformis. The psuedopectinata grows a lot faster.

I am running out of room for my grafted plants too. I have about 70 species/cultivars I started and I need to graft a lot of them, but I don't have enough room. Lol. I can't even graft one of each species. I'm pretty sure I will graft the aseliformis though.

Hold up hold up. So you guys are saying this Rainbow hedgehog cactus has been found to contain alkaloids such as mecaline?

I was previously unaware of this as i own the species and love it very much and im always interested to know which species in what families have been found to contain different alkaloids. its important to document and make it common knowledge among collectors. Its just another part of the plant after all and an important one to it for self defense.

Every time the "M" word comes up it should not trigger censorship right off unless its talking about potency or what have you that is in the rules. But When i first came here i mentioned how specific soil additives were important to several species of cacti for proper alkaloid production. I never even mentioned mescaline and i was warned about my post.
