Any Epi pros know this one?
Grown from seeds from a plant hanging from the branches of a tree on the shore of Lake Catemaco, Veracruz, Mexico. Seeds collected in 1993 - cactus bloomed for the first time in Sept. 2001.
Unfortunately, I didn't take any pictures of the fruit, but I seem to remember it was large and shaped like the comercially available pitaya/dragon fruit.
I have had it so long that I cannot remember how I came to have it. My very first, a pink variety, came from a couple who were selling their small plastic greenhouse. I bought the greenhouse and the plant. Later I bought some more exotic ones, one was name Three Oranges, but none survived the long term. Now I have another pink that is different from the old one, this white that are a mystery to me. Thus is the problem of growing old.
Lopophora, I don't know what your cactus is, but I do want to welcome you to Dave's Garden! This is a great place as I'm sure you will soon see (if you haven't already). Lots of nice, helpful people here and a personable webmaster to boot. If you ever have any questions on how to use your journal, the tradetracker or anything else, drop me a line. I'd be glad to help! And, thank you so much for all your additions to the Plants Database! They are much appreciated.
