Cheers HN. I will keep my eye on it nonetheless, maybe I should thin out the clump a bit? It has (estimate) around 50+ pups on it.

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



Unfortunately it didn't root easily - It dehydrated and became very
concave and then rotted at the first sign of any moisture (my own
fault) I'm not too keen to degraft this one.
The grafted loph next to it is just a williamsii . It has been
steadily growing for while and has just erupted with several pups about to
burst. Great little plant Smile

well i've found gymnos to be more addictive than astrophytums and mexican minis, so with a bit of luck it will rub onto you guys. Wink

i got a new one yesterday, G.buenekeri. it's been on my wish list for ages. $4.50!

Great pics Plantsoma! Welcome to ACF.

Not sure what species of Echinopsis you have there, but I love those flowers.

Those San Pedro look ghostly, interesting effect. I take it that you have edited in photoshop perhaps?

Enjoy the forums.

I thought I'd take some up to date photos of my plants and post them, the sun was setting when I took them and my mobile phone camera doesn't like low light levels so some of them are a bit blurry. If anyone wants closeups or IDs of the ones in here I'll post some Smile




The seedling bench:


My entire cactus bench fell down the other day so a few are missing because they haven't been moved back in but it's only a few pachanoi. I'm really lucky none of the cacti were too seriously injured, only a few uprooted and prickling eachother.

Yes I agree that's a nice collection Sponge. Well done with the grafts and seedlings, some of thoose are fairly difficult to raise and it shows how dedicated you are to have done so. I particularly like the pachypodium just left of center in the first pic...nice!

Latest purchase in bloom, picked up just the other day along with an M. compressa, N. submammulosus and E. grusonii. Got to love getting gift certificates for christmas Smile


Labeled a Dolichotele "Birds Nest" but guess it should really be Mammillaria camptotricha.

Trying to figure out how to repot the compressa without damaging it right now, it's outgrown the plastic pot it came in with the pups being badly squashed against the sides.

Being an impulse purchase, I parted with $35 for, what would it be, a 2-year old plant? The rest were about 30% larger but they wanted $70 for those.

I'm now beginning to think I may have seen these in the past being sold by private growers at the CSSNSW spring/autumn shows, maybe labelled as Digitostigma.
