Alright lads and ladettes,
I have been getting rather interested (and have been growing baby ones lately) in Pachycereus, Turbincarpus, Astrophytum and Ariocarpus..

Since I have a crap phone (nokia E63) I cannot re-size my photo's ect.

So I ask, can you please post pictures of your most rare/favourite Pachy's, Turbin's, Astros's and Ario's.. I would like to see what I'm up against! Haha. By all means please post them here. I am especially interested in Pachycereus and Ariocarpus.
Thanks

Yes I grafted that one about 3 years ago, however I should mention the photo is an old one.

Pretty much every picture I post I have grafted and or grown myself. I generally don't buy plants I either grow from seed or very young cuttings depending on species.

It was on Pereskiopsis.

That is fantastic. I only restarted my collection again 2 years ago starting with a single plant from Bunnings - a donkey's tail sedum. And only started my Pereskiopsis grafts this year. I had forgotten how quickly they grow and it only makes me wonder what they will look like at this time next year when they are more than twice as old.
How old was that ario in the photo at that time?

This LW is not mine, but it is in a collection that I help take care of. At some point it will be mine Very Happy
The visible portion of the plant is slightly bigger than a basketball - nearly 30cm across.

And here is my 1st prize winner Mammillaria plumosa, just re-potted, and not yet vacuumed off.
A little over 18 Inches / 46cm across. It's slightly in the shadows, so it doesn't look as good as it can be.

Nice HN. I have always liked mature caesp. A quick side not. My L. Caesp is only young and is a distinct blue grey teal sort of colour and yours are so vibrant?

Mites leave a brown / tan scarring. Lophs hard grown with lots of sunlight take on the beautiful silvery gray-green colouration, which is much more true to their natural look.
