I prepped a 1.858kg log of fresh torch and weighed the separate parts - just thought it would be interesting to compare results across spp.

The weights were

Dark Green outer layer = 622g
Lighter Green inner layer = 880g
Core and Wood = 286g
Skin and Spines = 70g

Ah, nice info!

Do you still know the length and diameter of the log?

Phluxy, is SWIY planning to dry? If so, post the results here: http://www.dmt-nexus.me/forum/default.aspx?g=posts&t=4475

Eventually, if we get enough data like this, we could chart the results and get a nice average. Maybe we could even develop a calculator.

Great! I can then create an online calculator for it with approximate results.

49cm - 7cm(tip to tip) of Pachanoi:

1336g Total weight
969g White flesh & core
319g Green flesh
48g Outer skin & spines

The strips of green flesh have been airdried at about 35C, which took 2 days.
The weight of the strips dropped from 319g (wet) to 19g (dry). So thats about 6% dry matter.

There is some info in Trout's Notes about this... I'll try to get it up soon.
WARNING: DO NOT INGEST ANY BOTANICAL WHICH YOU HAVE NOT FULLY RESEARCHED AND CORRECTLY IDENTIFIED!!!

I am Teotzlcoatl, older cousin of Quetzalcoatl. My most famous physical incarnation was Nezahualcoyotl, but I have taken many forms since the dawn of the cosmos. In this realm I manifest as multiple entities at a single time. I am many, I am numbered. I am few, but more than one. I am a multifaceted being, a winged serpent with many heads. We are Teotzlcoatl.

Trichocereus bridgesii monstrose = Penis plants

greenhouse grown given good organic food and ample water (fully hydrated).

30 small-medium stems of newer growth (no woody stuff) and spines removed.
fresh 575g
dried 35g
=94% water


batch 2 drying now but its also 30 stems.
fresh 677g
dried 45
=94% water

so a total of 1252 grams made 80 grams dry (almost exactly).

so about 6-6.5% of fresh cactus is the real weight of cactus (minus water) for well watered TBM.
