Hello! Nice forms!
This is our bocasana monstruosa, we noticed that ther is a different growth of the clones of this plant only grafting on different stocks.

Hello! This plant is grafted on harrisia and I like it particulary because I grafted it when I was 9 years old...now I'm a bit older! Photo was taken past year.

They really nice plants CP, I wish my 'fred' was that. Not to mention having them flower like that.

Carlo & Daniele, I think grafting 'fred' onto another stock is a really good idea and for some reason it hasn't popped into my head before.

Apart from this, what really surprised me was the fact that you grafted this plant when you were 9. Shocked

For this I'm even more impressed. Either way Carlo & Daniele its a really nice plant.

I started collect plants when I was a child (now I'm 23), but plants are well growing since me and my brother have the greenhouse (only 2 years passed).
Yes, I think the monstrose is trying to revert to normal but I'm going to take a recent photo now to see the update.

Are these all bocasana varieties, or have they just been grown in different conditions? I like the one in the round pot.

They are all clones of the big plant in the middle, just with different stocks and different ages. Grafting stocks are harrisia jusbertii, trichocereus pachanoi and pereskiopsis velutina. The ones on the round pot are own roots from a crested part that dried up.
