Echinopsis pachanoi
« on: January 10, 2007, 22:37:09 PM »
These usually start to open in the evening also, but the blooms last for 2-3 days.  They have a wonderful fragrance and have 2-3 bloom flushes in the summer.

I've only discovered this photo now. What a beauty Ron. These are fascinating plants. Does anyone else here grow them?

Can these be of the same family as my plant (we call it moonflower/maanblom) - the flowers look very similar in appearance and size?

Glad you found this post and bumped it to the fore Michael

A very nice specimen indeed Ron  :good:  :good:

 
A beautiful pix Rena  :clap:  :clap: but it looks a lot like "Epiphyllum Oxipetallum" to me

Wow - I have never seen a Echinopsis Pachanoi flowerin like this. I am growing two specimen, one in the garden and one in a pot and they are doing well in Cape Town. They are also called San Pedro cactus and is one of the most written about cacti as it contains mescaline.

Rena - that is a beautiful epi - I started growing epi's last year and have lost quite a few - just can't seem to get the watering right, but I guess ubung macht meister!!! Still got quite a few and I am hoping to see the first bloom next year.

Best Regards,

Here's an Echinopsis with some lophophoria and a trichocereus bridgesii 'monstrose' grafted onto its pups:

I got the stump about a year ago and did the grafts about six months back.
It was the most amazing coincidence how I got the stump. I'd decided to take a drive to Port Elizabeth to look for cactus at the nurseries, and on my way out of town saw a pile of it lying on the pavement! I knocked on the door and the old man said he was taking it out because he was tired of mowing the lawn around them. I got a bunch of tip cuttings to trade for different types, and have slowly been building up from there. The day that mine flower, I'll be a happy man.

Looks like a nice collection of cacti you have there and the grafted pups are looking really cool. Where do you source your cacti and succulents - I haven't yet explored the South Coast area for plants.
