230cm san pedro for $50 ... pretty sure its a cereus peruvianus/ perandus though? (I'm far from an expert)

shame, rare to find a good length in these parts

its a handsome plant for sure, but the clone collectors have pushed it out of my reach already.

Lets guess what it will make. I reckon it will go over $300

I asked the same question from the seller, but they are just for reference

Not mine Zed, I was wondering the same thing and if they were anyone s from here. The wording in the description is a bit vague, didnt sound like what you d write if they were the actual parent plants.

Cheers nrivers.

If they're "just for reference" then I'd suggest people look into spenging money with Sacred Succulents in the states then. For the same money you could get 5 times the amount of seeds from them, they're generous with how many they give you too compared to what they advertise. Sure, you have to muck around posting US currency. But it's worth it. Great germ rates and good variety of monstrose crosses.

Just my cynical opinion that no one asked for due to the cost being asked with no proper pics of parentage.

I counted out as a test and 27 out of 30 seeds germinated, (TPM x TP) sown from SS.

^ Yep. ^

At close to a dollar a seed when you add postage, I d be interested to see if they get any takers.

I really need to get myself an ss catalogue.

Those pics are from Solaritea's (aka Tricho Nest on fb) garden, I'm pretty sure.

Expensive mutant seeds, the pics of the parents keep changing, but the seeds pic remains the same. So i had a look around google to see if this was a stolen monstrose picture and i found this http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/345678/

Selling mutant seed is a pretty clever move, i mean, when you germinate your seed and get upset that you dont have any monstrose plants the seller can fall back on, well not all traits are passed on to the children so buying seed is really luck of the draw.

@ almost $1 per seed this guy/girl stands to make thousands off a single fruit

This clone was named by Sharxx, he got it from the cactus show in Melbourne several years ago. Could be the same clone being passed around under different names? Have you got any pics hebrew?
