Cactus cuttings for the cost of shipping

12 February 2017 - 01:01 PM

     It's getting to be the time of year when I need to cut back my Trichocereus cacti and get them ready for the upcoming season. I still have cuttings from last spring that are callused and ready to root. If anyone is interested in growing these monster cacti, let me know. I have a huge chunk of T. macrogonus (probably 15 lbs) and a big log of T. pachanoi just sitting around taking up space.

     If you're willing to pay shipping, I'll pack them up (either one or both) and send them to you as soon as the weather warms up a bit.



Here's a pic of the macrogonus:






     Depending on how many takers I get and how much folks are willing to spend on shipping, I might cut them in half to make it easier to pack them in LFRBs. These cuttings are gigantic and, even at half size, will still have plenty of energy stored up to take root very quickly.

     For just the price of shipping, these cuttings are a steal and will provide you with a fun, beautiful plant to grow and propagate for decades to come!

Gooooooooood shit!

     Boss, I'm trying to fix my username (not change it to something gross this time ;) ) but the edit name function keeps telling me I'm entering the wrong password. Just wondering if it got changed by accident or something.

Chinense ID help, please

     I bought some Elysium oxide Scotch bonnet seeds in a fundraiser auction last winter and planted some of them soon after. I managed to not kill two of the seedlings and grew them out. One appears to be true pheno , with green foliage, squat habit and pods that mature to a mustard color.

     The other plant was the polar opposite in almost all other regards. It has purple foliage, taller growth habit and pods that start purple and then turn green, white, yellow, orange and then deep red. The pods are also much denser and heavier than an average chinense. Their flavor is very sweet and fruity - like a concentrated Caribbean red hab.



Here's a pic of the whole plant. (It got severely damaged in a spring storm.)






Some pods





















     I don't know much about the lineage of the Elysium oxide bonnet, so I can't speculate whether this might be the product of instability. Maybe a product of cross pollination? Maybe just a mixed up seed? I've never seen anything like it before. Let me know if you have any ideas. Thank you!

     I have P. Dreadie standard (1 SFRB), Elysium oxide SB (1 SFRB), Bahamian Goat (lots), Fatalii x Red Savina (~ 1 metric shit ton).

     All are ripe and on the plants - I will pick and package to order. All varieties are $15/SFRB. I will mix and match to order, while supplies last.

     Thanks for looking!
