Thought I would share two of my freaks Smile

They are both the result of a cross between Trichocereus Peruvianus Monstrosus X Sacred Suculents SS02

Those are incredible. I like how they started out nearly 'normal', and then progressed from there.

The one on the left was grafted, the smaller one is a seedling. They would be just over a year old both from the same seed batch.

Is the rootstock buried below the soil line? I can't see where the graft scar is.

No mate it was de-grafted from pereskiopsis a while ago. It's now growing on it's own roots.

What an amazing comparison, so were the two of them planted as seeds at the same time?

Fantastic, that's a mega collection. Those Trico monstrose are awesome and the Lophocereus schotii spiralis I didn't even know existed in Australia.

I like it's heart shaped lower cladodes too.
Look forward to seeing what the next new growth spurt brings as it currently has a couple more signs of shooting.
