Today I had a couple of Trichos in flower at the same time Smile I crossed them each way and now fingers crossed Smile After the last shot was taken the second flower opened up on the bigger one and I pollinated it too.


Yesterday 13/12/2010












Today 14/12/2010

Beautiful! My globular echinopsis are in full bloom at the moment, but I haven't seen a single bud on any of my trichs yet this season...

blowng, no real tricks the only thing I do personally is not move the plant once it becomes dormant in the colder months leading up to the flowering season. I try and keep the plant in a constant position as I believe the arch of the sun (it gets higher in summer) is what helps trigger flowering.


Lachy, I had a nice Tricho Echinopsis hybrid that I missed whilst I was overseas. I was really keen to find out the flower colour. Fingers crossed for your trichos.


P.s I have heard many people say tichos flower more readily in the ground and I too believe this is true, both the plants above are in pots Smile

mutant,
The first plant pictured is Pachanoi "Omar" and the second is a is a Peruvianus, it does not have a name or person I can trace it back to but It was sourced from western NSW.

The fruits are developing nicely and should be ready in a couple of weeks

Hey HN, do you think your peruvianus could actually be a pachanoi variant, such as the following?

From Ecuador:





From Peru:





The colour of the hair/wool around the base of the flower is a bit pale for pachanoi though, but it could easily be a hybrid, like the PC pachanoi.

Yes it could easily be a Pachanoi, the remainder of the plant is quite heavily spined and reminds me more of Cuzco than a pach but there is such variation in Trichos I have no idea really.

Interesting, I really like the idea that there are several different pachanoi variants here in Aus, rather than just the PC clone. Where did you get it from?

Hey I just noticed something quite interesting when I stumbled across this thread again, thanks sneaky.

In the first picture of this thread look in the background there is a Tricho Peruvianus and the date is 13/12/2010, here is that picture to make it easier.



Here is the same plant as of 24/09/2013, the big one in the middle Smile That's some pretty good growth.

wow that's some intense growth. At least tripled in size since then. Just curious, whats the thickest log you have ever seen? I remember reading in trouts notes a very interesting snippet of information regarding some ancient, enormous (possibly naturally hybridized) tricho's.

Here's a photo I found on a rather interesting Facebook page, that, due to its topic of conversation I can't mention here.

One day it might reach this size.Wink
