here are some images of my cacti in the summer of 2014.

2014-07-22

2014-08-06
crested san pedro just began to make roots (I bought the cutting a month earlier)

2014-08-07
lophophora caespitosa bought from the same place as the san pedro.

A month later and my bridgesii is growing nicely.
you can also see 2 opuntia's i've grown from seed.

nice crested pedro!  looks like the other trich may have gotten wet over winter.  etiolated ones make great stock from my limited experience.  any plans for grafting?

yeah I allready have grafted one on peres. but these are pictures from 2014 still, I will upload more soon.

and the etiolated part was indeed because of to much water when it did not have enough roots the first 2 months after it was rooted. ( it was my first trich cacti and I made the mistake ;) watering it to often, not gonna happen again  ;D) As you can see the bridgesii in the last 2 pictures is the same one as in the first picture only a month later.

maybe I should note the dates when the pictures were taken.

cool.  i've been hoping for a crested loph to show up from seed.  no luck yet.  i tried buying one once but the only vendor i could find was overseas and shipping was a hassle.  they're awesome looking plants.

Time for a little Update.
I received an abused San Pedro cactus from a friend.
I couldn't watch any longer how he was pulling out the spines (because he hate to be pricked  ???) and letting it dry out to much in the summer and giving it to much rain in the spring/autumn.
Here is a picture I took after I cut off the side shoot (which was almost bigger than the main stem)

2014-09-13

San Pedro From seeds ( only 4 of 10 germinated :( )

2014-09-18

Peyote from seeds ( only 2 of 10 germinated:( )

2014-09-18

I mailed the site where I got my previous seeds and they mailed me 20 free peyote seeds.( still only 9 germinated, starting to suspect I'm doing something wrong ???)

2014-10-26

The abused one has made a new pub (pictures were made just before hibernation).

My collection ready to go to sleep.
The one staked up was the one I cut off the abused one and was still rooting.
