Echinocereus

I don't really know what genus this plant is, but I have not really seen it in nurseries, so it might be a survivor of one of my seed batches, possibly the SuccSeed one. That batch contained two Echinocereus picks and two Lobivia picks, so one of that might be this plant. Anyway, I'm not that concerned about identification right now -- can't waste too much time poring over the books again and again.

This species seem to work quite well as stock plants for grafting. You can see lots of grafting attempts in my Grafting Pages. These are a bunch of plants ready for grafting. They are extremely vigorous; in aquaculture these plants can grow out of control.

A Two-headed Specimen

This is a specimen with a damaged growing tip. The head split into two, and later one head split up again. The three heads can be seen more clearly in the pictures below. An early photo can be found in the Echinocereus Aquaculture Page.
