Re: Bryan's Plants

Nice pics! 🙂 It’s always interesting to get a glimpse of the flora and fauna from other parts of the world. The scented sundew, what kind of scent are we talking about? They are very lightly sweet and pleasant scent, you will need many flowers to be able to smell it. Here is the flower. Scented sun...

Re: What Blue Cactus am I?

Agreed it's E. platyacanthus.
They can be quite blue when young, had seen them in a friend's nursery.
Here is the picture for young E. platyacanthus (on the left) and F. emoryi.
Can see the different colours of the spines.

Re: What am I please.

Thank you pointing in the correct direction. Spent time again on Llifle and I think it may be this Echinopsis chiloensis var. borealis since many Trichocereus are now classified as Echinopsis. What do you think? Hi Mike, You could be right. It's very hard to differentiate some Trichocereus, especia...

Thanks mmcavall! Weather still a bit cold here, but I can see there are more flower buds.
Day time temperature might go down to 5°C again next week, hopefully not affecting the cactus too much.

Re: Cereus peruvianus monstrose as the leaning tower of Pisa

Thank you, BryanT, for your ideas. I dare say you have thought about that problem: Do you have many plants with the same tendency to lean over? The first variant with the ropes will not work here. I would slice the cactus. The plant supports in the picture are much to fragile. I have no idea how I ...

Re: Some of my young San Pedro's Need help standing fall over.

IMHO, I think they look etiolated. San Pedro seedlings at this age/height, the stem should be a bit wider? Maybe that's why the stem is not strong?

Re: Cereus peruvianus monstrose as the leaning tower of Pisa

Hi Nachtkrabb, Another idea for you. Tie a rope or wire around the neck of your pot (you can match the colour of your pot), then tie as many ropes (with some soft material as cushion to avoid damage to the plant) to support the plant, as picture on the left. Or, if you don't like to tied to the plan...
