here are a few of the seemingly endless projects that i have growing. some are more common, others i am tying to breed out myself.

PS. all the plants i grow are formed through selective breeding, i don't use chemicals/hormones to induce mutations Exclamation

Unknown Lophophora plants no idea what to call these....

these were sold to me as L. fricii....i bought htem cause of their unusual flowers. one plant has nromal size, the other (every time) has flowers 15mm or smaller...sometimes only 8mm! also quite strange colour. the normal pink of L. fricii but also a pure white to go with it, something i have not seen in lophophora friii before.

small flower plant next to regular L. williamsii

larger flower plant
Lophophora Happenings (many Pics) LU1-2



God knows what this weirdo is. it was one of 5 original plants originating in japan, all shipped here. i got one, 4 to another.....its seed grown so still a couple years from flowering....should know better then.
Lophophora Happenings (many Pics) LU2


I added an image stamp to these because i have had some problems with
people using my pictures to sell their plants in the past (solved
now).....but i don't want to go through that again, especially with
some of the newer cv's being done (thats the reason i don't post most
of my projects Embarassed )....if anyone wants to use my pics, or request better quality ones, just email me Smile


more pics later on Smile

Some great work your doing there Kada. It sucks when people steal your pics especially for dodgy selling purposes.

I really like that fricii F3 and I think your attempt at the fricii cv is coming along nicely.

I'm gob-smacked Kada.
You're doing great work in this genus that deserves major credit.

This is the kind of work people in Australia can aspire to.

Well done.

F3 Gets my vote all the way, that is one super sexy loph. Id nearly consider making a boat and smuggling one back into the country. *sigh*

Nice work.

thanks guys Smile i don't mind people using my pics, so long as they ask first and its not for selling their own plants ( it just seems WEIRD people would do that....???) any way, i often give out pics for people to use if its legitimate use Smile

there is no reason Ausies cannot.... the "cauliflower" fricii form i am trying to make all started from seeds i sowed and have since bred a few times with certain plants.....in time it all falls together....one thing i foudn with selective breeding ( i used to do it mostly with reptiles) is that if you actually stick it out and keep it up, good things turn up Smile get some projects going, you guys have enough base genetics there i think to get some really cool things!

F3 is one of my favourite plants as well. main head is 14cm. i just, last night, cut its babies off (all are 4-6cm) cause i want that main head to reach 20cm some day Twisted Evil

anyone else got any cool Loph projects going on?

Those F2s and F3s have really caught my eye, and the Pentagonus is a real cutie. Love the crests too.

can't wait to see Smile "kikko" is not that freakish in lophs i think. it happens in the wild at least somewhat commonly in some locations, and many collectors and turtle shells of varying degrees......i think there is good material around to maek some real nice deep kikkos like you see in myriostigma.....hint hint Wink get to it What a Face

LAchy thanks Smile

The f3 fricii were both F2 parents. teh f2 plants were F1 pollen to Original mom. Can't wait to breed the F3 to F2, i got a couple that i like the pairing looks Smile

Yeah I think it's fairly common, looks kinda cool tho. Would be interesting cross breed it.

I was thinking your F3 x F2 would be a very interesting result.

the difference on hair on loph are geneticaly trasmitted?
other question graft stok have some influence on this trait?
greath compliments for your work on loph kada!
like so much wen people work on breeding!
my passion for hot peppers and other vegetables first and now for astros are based on this!

cortona...i find its more genetic than graft stock, but certainly clones on different stocks show varying degrees of "hair length" sometimes.....i am not sure if its the stock or something else. But i know selective breeding for this trait is fairly common, especially in diffusa and fricii. generally diffusa wool comes off easier and look more bald the further down you go, but not always. williamsii wool is attatched quite well and many plants have wool near the base still.

HN, definately a nice cactus. I have had a few grafted to pereskiopsis like that that lost it when tehy were degrafted.....not sure if it was the stock or if they are like myrio kikkos that just sometimes dull out with size. i would put it in the line up though if it were my plant Twisted Evil

Shocked Kada WOW!! drool
that's just an incredible loph collection. congrats.
i can't get over the self-rooted crested one... that plant would cost more than a car here!

HN- thats one nice kikko cv too.

also I am looking for l.koehresii and jourdaniana.

i tried for 3 years to get live jourd's here....never made it through....i gave up and did the seed route....slow and steady wins the race lol.

"i can't get over the self-rooted crested one... that plant would cost more than a car here!"

i have bought a car for less money than what i bought that for originally.....that sounds bad when i say it myself lol...

you got anything on your plate lewis?

isn't jourdaniana supposed to be a hybrid of a loph with a mamm or turb?
can i make one myself? lol actually i reeally want one of em spiny Turbinophoras, i think they're just the coolest thing ever. does anyone know what loph and turb species to use? i saw a superb self-rooted good sized one for sale last year here but it was too pricey for me at the time. it had small turbinicarpus spines on an otherwise lopho body and supposedly had 'crimson' flowers and was definitely legit. great stuff.
sorta like a larger specimen of this random one from the net.
has anyone here got one? if so i'd like to hear the specific species parentage and a pic if possible.
more here.

The two I have heard of having the best success is Turbinicarpus lophophoroides X Lophophora williamsii. This sometimes known as Lophoturbina.

BUT
