It's not too tricky, once you get used to the process. If you click on the little icon that looks like a 3 1/2 inch floppy disk in front of a photo and follow the steps from there, you should be able to upload your photos to the site.

Has anyone seen a astrophytum myriostigma this tall i hadnt till this one check out the ornatums next. I love seeing potentially how large particular plants can grow too in cultivation in x amount of years gives you a goal to aim for.

I think that last one is a Ferocactus... maybe a large specimen of F. glaucescens?

I think you visited a property in Young Husband, on the bank of Murry River. I visited there in 2007.
The attached photo was taken in there, myriostgma, around 80 cm tall.

That saguaro is cool. It's not a species I've seen much of in cultivation here in oz. Such an iconic plant...

these photos are

in that photo with some huge notocactus there's a bright red spined ferocactus. Do you happen to know what it is?

The astrophytums are amazing

that big one with the narrow ribs and linear spination reminds me too of uebelmanias, fantastic plant too!
