Hi everyone,

I have had heaps of interest in the Trichocereus Peruvianus Monstrose x SS02 Crest that I've grown from seed and finally I can offer a cutting. I have made an ebay listing because it is the fairest way to decide who gets the plant. Anyway.

This is the ebay link for anyone interested, I hope someone from here or at least a true enthusiast wins it.

Just gotta say that that is a well grown plant.
There's some crazy tricho fans out there so I'm sure that it will be snapped up by a happy enthusiast!

That's going to go for a nice price at the end of the 6th day! Out of my budget already, BUT it's lovely. Good growing Smile

I do have one other plant that I will list after this one finishes but it is nowhere near as good as this one, however has the same genetics Smile

The cutting looks very healthy and juicy kinda like a custard apple. You still have 6 days to go; you might get more for it. Good luck.

IX,

Given the rarity anything is possible. I guess the old saying is true, 'Something is worth what someone will pay for it.'

I had no idea what would happen but didn't expect quite so much so early on.

Nehme,

You are dead right the plant is very healthy and grows deceptively quick for a crest. I generally find crests are slow growers but this is the exception and really powers along in the warmer wearther.


BTW I've given this particular clone/plant a name TPM X SS02 Var "NitroNasty" The name is purely a way of keeping track of the plant as it does the rounds though the community so people know they are getting the right plant.

NitroNasty has a ring to it. Nitro does well with his stuff.

It has still got legs I'm sure. If not I'll be bidding at that price; but you'll have to ship it to my friends house HN cause my wife will knacker me if she finds out!

Yeah never really happens it is just a crazy genetic event that allows this to happen. I think nearly every seed from the original cross produced a crest or at very least a mutant. All of mine (6 seeds) are cresting nicely.

Do you know what kind of conditions you had them in for them to crest? or anything special that you think could've have happened?

This particular batch of seeds crested, In Sydney (Mine), ACT, United States, and Greece. So growing conditions have absolutely nothing to do with it. Pure genetics.

Additionally I cleaned the seeds with detergent and white spirits prior to planting so there was no bacteria or pests on them if you were thinking that. The seeds were not treated with any chemical or anything of that nature. All natural and so so amazing.

I bid it up to 65 but was outbid and decided to stop as I am going to a major cactus auction this weekend and decided to save my cash for there.
