I know they are common in some peoples collection, and I also know they can be hard to come accross..

So I was thinking of taking a few cuttings for people around home and thought I may as well see if anyone here on ACF were interested in some cuttings of them?

If you're interested post here or PM as I haven't taken any cuts as yet, and will need to dust with sulphur and allow to callouse so that I know you get a decent cut.

Just saying....

I am not exactly sure. It's from an over grown mammoth of a plant in the scrub that I stumbled accross. I am personally using it for grafting purposes and thought others may or may not be interested.

I'll go back and look again and try and suss it out.

Sweet, I would be interested if it produces fruit. Many of he wild pants in Eastern Australia don't, unfortunately.

Would that be because it's not ''tropical enough''? I'm heading in that direction sometime through the week so will let you know when I investigate further.

No it's not the weather, it's the species. The first issue is identification, Hylocereus and Selenicereus can be difficult to distinguish. The second is the common 'wild' plant that occurs on the east coast is usually referred to as "Queen of the night" cactus, this plant flowers but will not produce fruit. That being said it is a great grafting stock:)
