Dam just snagged this other addition to the collection. Seed was sown in 1991. For the price I'd have been stupid not to make the purchase. This was a local Canadian purchase. Looking forward to receiving this new addition this coming week.

Snagged a couple of these for the collection. They arrived at the wrong time, had a spring snow weekend where then temps dipped to -10. They will recover but some of the heads suffered some freezing damage..

Finally tracked down a cutting of some Trichocereus Bridgesii Froma monstrose Inermis for the collection. This one has been an illusive plant to acquire. Took me nelly 5 years to find someone willing to part with a cutting up here in Canada.

This has been a super productive month for me, not only adding many new cacti to the collection. But was luckly enough to aquire sone Sunshine. Haven't had this in close to 10 years and looking forward to some summers trips. Supposedly this comes from The Merry Pranksters Network. This made my whole summer!

This last month this flower has pushed our 4 flowers and is onto its 5th flower unfortunately this plant is self-Sterile. So haven't seen any seed pods off this one yet but hopefully the below plant will be able to change this..

Lophophora Williamsii var Fricii (??)

1st time this plant is flowering for me, but looks Farcii to myself. We will see very soon with this double header.

The next generation of Trichocereus Cacti in my collection.
d9bf108f770e18b4170430cfb2dae96a.jpg

Sourced these seeds from an Australian breeder. The germination rate is nice and high for most crosses.

I've been a little absent around the grow the last 4 days and came back to my humidity chamber a little wet. Left the lid off for a couple hours last night and will again this evening.

Crosses are of
-Rosie 1 & 2
-Crazy Spine
- Rod
-Fields 2
-Psycho

Those Australian genitics are amazing. I've got a couple crosses with Yowie & BondI Scop genitics and they are my personal favorites.

The new seedlings should be interesting. The parent genitics will be a nice addition to the collection.

Its hard to get Trichocereus up here in Canada. Either have to know someone growing it or take your chances wirh customs. Canada is a pretty strict countey to import plants into. I've most more than I've received.

The Penis Cactus finally shot roots. So will let her establish herself a little then I'll take a nice graft this fall and start growing them out under lights over the winter.

If your up in Canada and wanna do some trades I've got lots of interesting things
