Cheers HN. I really like my Arios too, I just wish I could find more to buy. There was quite a few going around late last year/early this year, haven't seen too many since, am keen to get some more larger ones soon if anybody is selling Wink

Must get out to Hamilton's, don't have a car though grrr... Evil or Very Mad

Cheers. Hey I have noticed the oldest head (the wooly one) on the C. hypo looks like it might be cresting scratch or is that just normal growth? Anyone know?

Not that experienced with the species or even the genus.

HI Guys,
I was working on the everlasting greenhouse and I thought I'd share some pics with you - this represents the majority of my collection - mainly Astropytum and Trichocereus with some others mixed in - I have some more inside the house but nothing special. I have been collecting for about 18 months. as you can see the greenhouse isn't finished
- and yes, I trip over all the time.

An impressive collection you have there WT. Lots of Astros, good to see.

Always nice to see a well stocked greenhouse. Looks like you are gonna need a larger property soon to house all your cacti Wink

I would love to move somewhere with more garden space. I would
build a bigger greenhouse too.
You see now why I wanted to get rid of the succulents!

I think as my collection grows I will have to be more specific about what
I collect and only buy special plants

Awesome! Lots of healthy cacti and quite neat and well-organised from my perspective...

I want, I want, I want a greenhouse!

Very impressive collection. Imagine what it's going to look like in 5, 10, 15, 20 years.

Are they Hoodias in the foreground of the second shot?

Thanks Guys. Smile

Squil, yeah they are Hoodias - H macrantha and H Ruchei <-- Spelling? , they are looking pretty sick at the moment; its either too much light or too cold. I have some seedlings inside which will hopefully make an appearance in the greenhouse this year.

PD: I was going to say that some people might recognise some of the plants - The ones I got from you are just starting to take off. Smile

They have put me on the cactus patch already, but am still buying too many cacti even when I have cut down. bounce

I have to agree with everyone else - try stopping yourself from getting that unsual cactus coz ya not gunna get anymore. Believe me I have tried it and it doesn't work. I thought I would 'specialise' and stick with one species, then I saw some interesting gymno's and steno's and the thoughts went 'oh a few more won't hurt' lol!

Thats my screened red granite - I wash and sieve buckets of
granite that I get for $5 for two. I get three sizes from course
granite sand - a small 7mm size and a larger 10mm size - I really like it - and
the price is good too. Smile


& to the others - I'll post again this time next year. I'll have about
13 really nice plants... and plenty of room in the greenhouse. You'll
see... Razz

I was thinking the same thing - where my wife
walks the dogs I've noticed some big ants nests - I haven't collected any yet
but it does look good. Also there is a massive hedge of Opuntia
which I'm experimenting with - so far I have a success rate of 2/3
grafting with astrophytum. I have recently done some more
that have yet to show success/failure.

Hi lewis,
the Hakuun is grafted onto a Hylocereus which was really badly sunburnt. two of the three sides of the Hylocereus have died but the third seems to be doing ok. this happened about 6 months ago or thereabouts. The Hakuun seems to be ok at the moment.
I have another Hakuun which was degrafted - I left a small part attached and its pupping like mad.

unfortunatly I didn't grow these from seed- they were all purchased. )

ah okay. looked like rot from where i am sitting. keep an eye on it, if it is just sunburn it will, probably, recover, if not either re- or degraft. with the degrafted one did it root readily?
and what is the loph graft next to the hakuun?? looks quite healthy.

p.s am i blind or do i notice an apparent lack of Gymnos in your collection? not to worry i will have to post heaps of flower pics in summer to convert you + HN to the dark side. Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Smile

Trig I don't think it will crest. This look is due to the crowding. I have seen this in several of my plants and they don't usually crest. But it is possible.
