Yeah awesome pic Navajoa... the crest is flowering too.


I'd be keen for a Carnegiea seedling too crypto. Smile
I have a decent T. scop about 45cms and a 90cm cereus peruvianus that should do the job I'm thinking.

I'll make sure all of you who have an interest in grafting the Carnegiea get them. Probably better to send them out around spring time when it is good to graft.

Yep that could have been the one HN !

Crypto, sorry, you still lost points for putting the "e" in the wrong spot! Saguaro Cacti - Page 2 Icon_razz

The flowers are pretty impressive too, if you can get up close to them ! Usually they're a couple of metres above you !

Fortunately there is no cactus spell checker,Nav, or your considerable talents in this field may be redundant Wink

I think these Carnegiea gigantea grafts will be pretty odd looking... just thinking one columnar on top of another. Also the scion will be super spiney too.
If its on a huge trich or cereus stock the graft should last a great while.
