Cactus of the month year day thread? Which cactus is really shining for you right now?

Recommended Posts

Have been watching the big fella wake up. He seems to come to life late every season. Pachycereus pringlei

That's beautiful Nrivers!

How old is he?

And Spooge, last time I was at Fields I got cuttings of 3 different chilensis. The one in the earlier post was from the big one next to the garden valida. Here are the other two...

I was told the second one is 'longispinus', it's located behind the little waist high shade house thing towards the front (road side) of the garden. The first is located somewhere in between the other two.

Also, that pachanoi is ridiculous! :) 

 

Thought this guy was looking particularly perky this morning...

Thanks Psyentist and Spooge. Unsure of the age mate it was about 200mm high when I got it about 6 years ago and yeah keep him undercover in fear of loosing him.

Yeah, I reckon it looks the most like the first plant too mate.

And that's about the best reason I've heard to go back for a visit! :) 

 

Quite liked the look of this fella this morning. T. werdermannianus KK917...

A gift/(imbalanced swap) from one of the members so it's extra special.

Got 2 cactulas of the week for last week - hopefully will have cactus of the year in the coming week though :3!

 

This "scop" with bigger than usual spines seems to have some kinda bridgesii facial features -

as far as my lens detects at least,..

it came labelled as a pachanoi , I could tell it was scoppy from the ebay listing enough to "know" it was a scop and a very nice one too ...and it is defo more scop than anything else upon arrival.. - the dude sells a different plant as scop ... hmmm - my spidey senses are tingling toward a scopXbridge but gna stick with "spiny scop" for now 

what an honour to own another unique and beautiful scoppy plant to add to the aus-scop/cordo/superpedro/FR clan

And this superbad epitome of a peruvianus - if only I'd've had one of these as a noob to base my sense of what a specimen peruvianus looks like in the flesh.. - and thus named cactoman! - for reference n stuffs

Be careful with your finger mate, those astros have a nasty bite

 

The hairy thing is gorgeous, what species is it?

Thank you DualWieldRake, the species of the blue columnar I believe is Piloosocereus Palmeri or Pilosocereus Leucocephalus.

 

Finger was just put there for reference to size :P ahah soon I have to weed my entire cacti garden which wont be fun :(
