Wow that is the nicest speciman of ritteri ive ever seen approx how old would this plant be. Was wondering if ritteri is self pollinating i have but a small one that i think might flower next season. And do you have aztekium hintonii and do you know if that is self pollinating. What great plants they must all be of great age. Some lophophora-flowers Icon_biggrin

Hey lachy have you ever grafted aztekiums or grown from seed. I think its is one of the real challenges i would love to try as im still young and by the time im 70 they might look really nice like the ones in the photo. Have to graft them i reakon but so slow and by the time they would get to a size you can graft the plant is hard so if i get seed i cant wait to try this one aztekium ritteri. Also love that pelecyphoria asseliformis love to get my hands on that. Some lophophora-flowers Icon_biggrin

I do have a grafted hintonii that has pupped quite nicely, and I may even give it a go of grafting a few onto perry... but as to growing them from seed - never tried it.

Some lophophora-flowers 005

I own the one on the right, I've been informed these are possibly 2 of australia's older seed grown Plecy's I really wish I owned both of em. I'll take some better photo's tommorow when im free around the house. (1st day off in 2 weeks) and no they aren't 3inch pots there 10cm square pots. Tag in background give you a good idea of how big they really are. I must say im rather envious of your outstanding collection Echinopsis. Some lophophora-flowers Icon_twisted They are awesome and rather old specimens. You guys have such great cacti over there, thanks for sharing.

Thought you might like this close up of the spines of Pelecyphora. I noticed when I degrafted these that some waxy layer rubbed off the sines and they were succulent underneath.

There's some really beautiful, old plants here. Crypto, that macro shot of the Pelecyphora is really fascinating.

Just wondering if its possible to graft a tubercle and has anyone done it. Great close up photo of pelecyphora interesting to see spine formation close up and to see that part of the spine had rubbed off. Love the pics of the old mexicans would love to see plants like that offered for sale in aus or its maybe just cause im in adelaide we do not have a cacti and succulent nursery here maybe they are for sale somewere in aust hate to think how much plants of that age and size would be worth.

Cactuscook,

Tubercle grafts are possible and can be done quite successfully with some plants. Hanazono has done it Mamm Luethyi, there are photos on the forum I think have a look around.

found it for ya>

I couldn't resist when I saw it and I've bought this "Lophophora Williamsii Huizache" with interesting flower. Diameter of the plant and flower is 6 cm.

This is an absolute gem of a thread. All of my favorites together. I have quite a few lophies now but I have never seen one with flowers quite like that. I just planted a heap of these seeds. Is this a true breeding trait for that locality or is this just an unusual trait unique to this plant?

Yes, Huizache is known for L. Will. with narrow petals, but me too, I've never seen Williamsii with such a big flower before!

Is it possible that this particular plant was a cross pollination with some of the other known pollinators of L. Williamsii? ( Ariocarpus, Mammillaria, Strombocactus etc.)

Hard to say but i dont think so. Even within the genus Lophophora the different species do not cross polinate that easily at all. Besides, hybridisation would be reflected on the body of the plant but here we have a typical Williamsii body! I've bought this plant from Koehres (Lophophora.info) and he grows Lophophoras in a separate greenhous as far as I know.
