Recommended Posts

ruby visions terscheckii cross

Echinopsis of some sort ?

First one is the ruby visions terschekii cross and the other is some kind of echinopsis, Hope they will flower around the same time so i can try cross them.
Just thought i would share : )

Beautiful plants, love all those 'weird' Trichocerei, I hope you get some seeds, the cross would probably look amazing! (btw, I'd definitely be willing buy a few of those seeds)

COnGrATuLatIOnS!!! Please show us the pics!

the 2nd looks familiar,,, maybe Echinopsis comarapana or bridgesii (not to be confused with t. bridgesii), or another one ive seen at my local botanical garden. its always neat to have one of them obscure ones yourself!

Every flower I put master B's scop pollen on last year took. It will be the first pollen I use this year unless my first 2 plants happen to flower at exactly the same time and they're ones I want to cross with each other. :worship:

Unless I have a second scop flowering this year I will also use this pollen on the some of the scop flowers that already has buds on it.

I used Maser b's scope pollen which he generously sent me : )

It did unfortunately get delayed in the mail over the weekend despite being sent express, so I hope it was still viable?

Time will tell : ) here is what it looked like yesterday
