I sowed seeds initially in September 2004.
Unfortunately all original plants were dead.
The photo one is 2nd generation.
I have kept 12 plants but kept many seedlings.
Own-root plants do not make any offset.
I sow seeds evey year and waiting a special one coming out, similar to the following.

Discocactus horstii is one of my favorite cacti, pushing flowering buds up this evening.
I am not sure why but several plants are in flower together every time as if it was prearranged. It is easy to do pollination next morning.

This has a story about it so i thought i would share i got a frailea from a friend and had several really nice ones. Then one year i lost all of them i only had some seed though i had given some seedlings and seeds away i grafted a seedling onto pereskiopsis then it grew very fast and had multiple offsets then the main plant began to rot at the graft join so i grafted 2 offsets onto harrisia this is one showing many seed pods. After all that another friend gave me back to small plants next pic will show.

A 2 year old seedling well its no longer a seedling so plant i guess, that my friend gave to me.
I now have multiple seedlings coming on this is truly one of the real gems of the cactus world.

Unfortunately this amazing cresty belongs to one of my good mates, and isn't mine. It's got hundreds of buds, so I thought I'd photo it for here.

Just wonderful HZ, shame you can't post the smell because a picture can never convey that wondrous fresh scent.

Wow most the cacti have slowed down flowering, some Lobivias and some other od ones, but I think here is NQ it is getting to hot. I noticed that July August is better here.

@mitchell101, That Hylocereus hybrid is interesting where did you find this gem ? I'm sure I have seen a very similar plant a while ago under the Selenicereus genus can't remember the sub-species. Additionally I do believe there have been successful intergeneric hybrids of the two species. A cool plant Smile

Looks very similar in flower to one of mine, though mine has different stem growth and spines. More or less nailed that one down as a Disocactus hybrid.
Got lots of Ecinopsis buds ready to open right now that I likely will miss as I'm up the central coast for a mini break with the wife, she knows I have a few screws loose already so I didn't even bring up taking them with us so I could see the flowers open!

Is that a Mammillaria bocasana crest? What ever it is it is a beast. Smile


Hanazono you still amaze me with most of the photos that you post.
That is a great show of flowers I am not normally a big fan of all white flowers but they look fantastic.

Cheers

Stunning Discocactus horstii Hanazono!

How old are the Discocactus horstii shown in the pic and what stock did you graft them on.
Unfortunatley I have never smelt a discocactus' flowers

midlife crisis
The flower color of horstii is white and has a nice scent because of night flowering.
The flower has to attract insects at night for pollination in habitat.


Superkabuto869
The Discocactus horstii in the photo is 5 years old, 1st flowering was last year.
The stock is an Echinopsis hybrid.
Some of Astrohytum flowers have citrus scent but it is hard to describe the scent of horstii flower.
The scent of hostii is better than citrus.
Other Discocactus flowers have a similar scent.

Holy crap that's a show and a half! Shocked

Got lots of buds going here right now, some likely waiting for some warmer weather before they really kick in. Here's a selection of some of them mainly Echinopsis and Gymo's but also some others for good measure.

Gymno's





Echinopsis, well the first is Echinopsis now but used to be Lobivia





And 3 random's for good measure

Not a terribly impressive cactus, but it's the first time I've seen it flower. I must have gotten it at least fifteen years ago, I got two types of trailing ones that my Mum has in hanging baskets. One puts out big white flowers on stalks, and this has never flowered until I noticed it this morning. I'm really surprised at the size and shape of them too (sorry the photo is not awesome)

I think there are some similar ones here Olga that are growing near the marina like a weed, i'm heading down soon to grab a cutting as its growing insanely, as well as dragonfruit EVERYWHERE, up tree's, in amongst shrubs ect just growing wildly.
