it should be noted however, these are not my pics
just found on them on the web
here are some more unusual Lophophora forms, including crests, monstrose, & variegated
some of the below pics are williamsii, some are L. species, and the last is a crested diffusa

the one below is 50-150 yrs old..its an heirloom collectors piece from cactus mall
those cristae are fuckin gnarly. how old do u think those suckers are? 20+ yrs? or just 5yr old grafts?
(not for sale) see: http://www.cactus-ma...lophophora.html
genetics......as i understand it
how do cristae form?

sells crested Echinopsis/Trichocereus peruvians
kinda pricy tho...and the cuttings are small, says the site..
definitely do some reading-up online before buying one :)

Notice in the 4th and 6th pics that there are normal buds starting off a crested seedplant!
the second to last attachment displays a house-sized T. pachanoi forest,
cut-down after 15 yrs and it all started with a single decorative shoot.
this site boasts this is the very reason to plant pedro in-ground ;) got 15 yrs? ;p
there are monstrose forms budding off the sides of the beastly formation!
they say it is due to too much fertilizer. wow! 'overbudding' :D .....enjoy

this one is said to be a monstrose peruvians
however, the only other pic i have ever seen of them, looked totally different (different variation?spine coverage was denser and it looked almost crested growing sideways)
can anyone confirm this one for me?
im almost positive it is, but dont want to misinform anyone :naughty:
