PostSubject: Random Cacti Photo Thread   Sun May 25, 2014 6:17 pm

Hello,

I would like to start a thread where each person posts a single cacti photo form their collection. The only rule us just post a single photo per post and wait until another person posts before posting again.


I will start things off:

Trichocereus Peruvianus. I just love this particular plant, the blue shimmer is amazing.....

Think I'll continue on with the blue theme.
The following plant is one I purchased from Lester, I love the blue colouring and the new spines are a nice red colour.

The attached photo is an Astrophytum asterias showing a mature appearance.
I sowed seeds in 2001 when I was in NSW.
The seedling moved to SA together with me in 2003.
The current size is 18 cm diameter.
I assume it will reach to 20 cm diameter in future.

Ariocarpus retusus v furfuraceus cv Suguri large tubercle cauliflower

I have 2 grafted mature plants but only 1 plant shows the character of cauliflower.
I harvest may seeds and propagate seedlings.
I select seedlings showing the cauliflower character and keep them.
The attached photo is one of them.

I believe it is a peruvianus. Not sure. Just took a cutting from a huge plant at the dump.

Ferocactus chrysacanthus f rubispinus
Sown seeds in 2001 and grafted young seedlings and degrafted later
Sit on outdoor since 2009

Since sunlight is strong enough in here, the plant appearance is similar to a habitat one.
It was buried in winter-weeds but I removed them for taking the photo.

A cactus called "Benitaka" was very popular overseas about 10 years ago.
Benitaka means red-hawk.
I found the scientific name of Bebitaka which was a cultivar of Theloactus hetarochromus.
The cultivar had thick and long spines.
I could find the seeds of Thelocactus hetarochromus f longispinus in a domestic seed supplier and sowed them on 31st August 2006.
The photo is one of them. The flower of hetarochromus is very large.

Hakuran-super (coahuilence x super kabuto)

Hakuran-super is a typical asterias related hybrid.
The photo is a 2nd filial one ((coahuilence x super kabuto) x super kabuto).
Although number of ribs is same as coahuilence, it seemes super gene is affected quite strongly.
It is just 5cm diameter, flowering size.

Thanks HN for your comment.
Unfortunately it has a small body because the hybridization is affected.
