Spring 2017 trade/sell/donation/garbage list

Post Number:#1  Postby Melt in the Sun » Wed Apr 05, 2017 1:19 pm

Hi gang, here's what I need to get rid of this year! Anyone interested? Most of these photos were taken yesterday so the number of offsets visible is probably all I have.

'Mad Cow', Greg Starr's version of A. colorata x bovicornuta

Agave "titanota" from Greg, grown from lazily documented seed so may not be real titanota...if you care about that kind of stuff.

'Sharkskin' decent size pups. The big plant is blooming and I want this deathtrap of a plant out of my yard.

Agave utahensis v. eborispina is very slow. I think the pups crowd the nice main plant so have decided to rip it apart this year. Spines are longer than the leaves.

Agave 'Little Shark' is larger, bluer, and faster then the sorta similar 'Royal Spine'.

Aloe hemmingii was thrown into the yard as a death sentence and has thrived instead. Blooms dinky flowers all year and is rather pretty.

Sign me up for 'Cubic', both Orbea and Stapela leendertziae. Check my thread if anything grabs your attention. I have at least 50 containers full of seed here too.
Agave
"American aloe plant," 1797, from Greek Agaue, proper name in mythology (mother of Pentheus), from agauos "noble," perhaps from agasthai "wonder at".

Done. I'll take a look at your thread. I'm still not really growing stuff from seed...out of town too much for that to work well.

Here's a new photo of the salmiana x lophantha. I pulled 2 pups this evening but there are more. Just a heads up - the pups I ship from this plant almost certainly will be rootless. They seem to remain totally reliant on the mother plant for much longer than most plants. I pulled one with 9" leaves today and it has no roots whatsoever, just a big fat rhizome. So, if you get a rootless plant from me, that's why...I'm not just ripping you off! They are vigorous and will root easily.

Since this was not really pertinent to the Huntington Sale thread, I figured I'd answer the Schick hybrid conversation we started here:
I just did a check and the number of viable offsets on the Huntington Schick plants I have (about 20-25 or so) is remarkably low.

The following Schicks I have, have viable offsets:

Sierra Skyline
Sasquatch
Maria Piazza
Oberon
Edwardian Lady

But I have bunches of offsets on other hybrids:
Some well rooted plants of a couple of Paramount hybrids:
Los Angeles (growing this in the ground and it is doing quite well - I have a big plant in a pot that is definitely flowering, and some smaller plants that should be close)
Fluffy Ruffles (lost one of the two parent plants I had, but had a bunch of offsets already growing in pots and the other plant has plenty of offsets going)

Another rooted offset
Trichocereus 'Roxanna' (Got it from the DBG, origin beyond that unknown - I lost a huge chunk off the main plant a few years back and while it has new growth, it has not flowered since, but this is a pretty amazing one)

Then I have a bunch of hybrids from other sources with offsets:
Bright Eye
Gates Yellow
Kaleidoscope
Killian (Gary Buie)
Apricot Glow (Trichocereus - Dimmitt - it would likely be a cutting rather than an offset)
Arizona Sunset (Trichocereus - cutting)
Volcanic Sunset (Trichocereus - cutting)
Raspberry (Trichocereus - cutting)
Prometheus (Trichocereus - cutting)
Queen Mary (according to pictures, but I would have to go look for the plant - may have lost its label)
Red Meteor
and a bunch more, but I am so far behind in cataloging things that I'd have to go check the labels in the pots, or go digging through my pile of pictures.

I'd happily swap some, if you are interested in any, for the June Noon, Flying Saucer, and/or Epic (I have first light, which is only just starting to grow more arms), and/or mangave pups and/or a 'maybe' titanota pup (to add to my other 'maybe' titanotas) and/or a salmiana x lophantha pup. Unfortunately I cannot help you with much on your want list, I have an A. sebastiana, but afaik it has no offsets (I guess I should check the pot as I have not looked at it in any detail since last Fall).
It is what it is!

Am interested in an A. utahensis eborispina and Puya alpestris. Can offer the ersatz hookeri again; perhaps a larger one. Also you might like to try the old timey version of univittata. This one has a spread of almost 4 feet and none of the "lophantha" look about it. I know it's perflora non glora (if I may coin a phrase) but perhaps it hasn't been used much in your area. I still have lots of Orostachys japonica I can throw in the box. My agave maximilliana has filled the pot with pups and can send them if you please. It was TC from Shady Oaks? and not sure the species is supposed to pup.

Well I originally started this thread to get rid of some excess stuff...thin the herd so to speak, and perhaps pick up a few cool new things. I think I miscalculated somewhere along the way...45 new plants (not counting duplicates) and I'm not sure I didn't forget some in the picture as well. :shock: I am out of pots and out of dirt (for the second time).

I like it. Find a home for one, and acquire two more in it's stead. ::wink::

I've been going through the same thing. I actually made an effort to place a few plants, and did, but wound up adding twice as many more. :lol:

Lol, I have not even gotten around to posting my trade/sell/donate/garbage list... Happy to have contributed to the haul! I will also be going shopping for soil got everything I received from you in pots and squared away for the summer though, now it is back to the long list of plants that need to be up-potted because I did not finish my back yard cactus bed yet...

I did get another batch of Echinopsis hybrids from Gary Buie, some the Echinopsis/Trichocereus collection has expanded by about 15 plants... Here a couple of flower shots from plants that had flowers this morning:

Thanks! Viegener is indeed correct: it is Killian iso Kilian, I misspelled it.

I will see how many offsets of decent size there are when I have some time, but work and being late on the second anti-weevil treatment of the year will keep me occupied for the near future.

Cheers!
