Calling all cacti enthusiasts,

I know it has been a while since I have posted, I have been busy adulting... But I just did a search online tonight looking to pick up a new Bridgesii cactus for my patio, since I have in the past, BUT THERE ARE NO CUTTINGS TO BE FOUND!

It's not the end of the world since I can try to grow some pups, but does anyone know what happened? Why are good cacti cuttings no longer available online?

FYI Bridgesii are my favorite for their consistent high potency. Pleased

I still see Bridgesii cuttings for sale on Reddit and the Facebook groups. But the prices can be very high. It seems like demand is just way up. Lots more people want the cuttings than what is available for sale online. Its been getting this way for awhile. But during the pandemic the interest and demand have increased even more.

Man I wouldn't think the pandemic would affect availability of cacti cuttings... they are still growing regardless. I was thinking it was some government crackdown I missed?

But yeah could just be more demand like you say Grey Fox. Maybe more people staying at home wanting to get high or there are more people reading about the best psychedelic now, one of the two. Confused

Yes, the demand has seemed to grow in relation to the supply; the prices seem to be steadily going up over the past, well almost a decade I guess. There are new people selling them but it's hard to sort chaff from the green outer layer and lots of the prices are high... Sacred succulents has more or less stayed at a steady price (when you correct for inflation) but there turn around time has become absolutely ridiculous over the last couple years (I assume it's still the same or worse).

Honestly, if you're looking to invest in growing then i would say to opt for seeds. If not, how much bridgesii are you trying to buy? There were a few good sellers on eBay a year or so ago when I was still checking the markets. Again though, chaff and price etc.

Are you on sts?

Not cuttings, but I have been getting a bunch of different cacti seeds, including brigesii from StrictlyMedicinalseeds, worldseedsupply, Iamshaman/shamansgarden. All have the seeds, which are not hard to grow. You just have to follow specific specs, and after day 1 you pretty much just wait. Maybe take the plastic off and spray twice a week, if that, but I am having great success with mixing my own custom soil w/ heavy perlite. My trichocerus macrogonus from strictlymedicinal is 90% successful. The other vendors were about 50%, with world seed coming in last at about 25%. Hope this helps

I think part of the reason that Bridgesii cuttings in particular are challenging to find is due to the growing recognition out there that Bridgesii is so consistently strong. If you're going to pay $40 for a 6 inch cutting then you might as well get the most bang for your buck. Seasonal availability is also part of it I think, as many growers harvest cuttings from their cacti at the end of the growing season in the fall.

One would hope that, as more and more cacti are grown, that more cuttings would become available at reasonable prices. But since so many are still relatively new to growing, and since demand is still so high from those justing getting into the hobby, it seems that the market is still a ways off from being flooded with affordable, high quality cuttings. Honestly it might take a long, long time to get there. Just have to wait and see. The good news is that once you get enough of your own plants growing then your personal supply will be set for life.

What is the main cause of good Bridgesii growing?
Stable living: houses with yards.
How do we make houses with yards more affordable for people?
We offer sub prime mortgages. 0 Money down? No problem!
We give these out like candy and sink the country into another recession
Enjoy the fruits of our labor by drinking Bridgesii under a bridge

Here in Canada I can say it is mostly seeming to be due to the growing interest in these plants viewed as "legal highs", combined with increased media spotlight on them etc..and the budding legal weed and psychedelics markets. These combined have forced health canada to shut down some really nice shops that were around for a long time. Kratom is used in part as an excuse, as it is an issue of debate atm.

Stuff is still out there, but good luck finding much other than $$$seed. We had walk in shops full of trichs and salvia clones, mimosa trees etc..and now nothin like that that I know of.

I am glad I have been starting lots of seed every winter, as I have well over 100 potent trichs(most of it seed grown bridge) that have reached at least 1-3 feet and been divided etc.

Start now. You dont need much lol. I had at least 70 of them in a tiny basement right downtown in a big city before I moved to a better climate for them. I had no yard, only concrete steps outside my door to put them on, in a rainforest in Canada. They still grew, to full maturity. Then I moved them all 4 hours east in my car. Took a few trips but you dont need to be rich and own a house to grow trichs.

Grey Fox I think is right. Lot's of people have gardens that future generations will enjoy. I hope that this is peoples intent.

I wanted to get some other cuttings this year as well, but dont really need them either so started a bunch of tersch,peru and santaensis seed. Got some saguaros going as well.

When I'm in the market these days I'll watch Ebay until someone posts half a dozen listings for stouter than average cuttings (usually from Cali or Florida) and PM them with an offer for all of it at a reduced price.

That being said I still can't believe what I recently paid for a big chunk of Ogun. Shocked

I’ll send you a bridgesii cutting, Kash! PM me.

The Cactus Jones sells a bunch of high quality cuttings, he posts new cacti every few days. It is mostly pachanoi crosses but there is a psychoO bridgesii cross on his website right now. Hope this finds you well, I have a bunch of seedlings popping now but they won't be ready for a while. I would also love a nice bridgesii cutting but I agree the prices are high right now.

If you want seedlings High Country Cactus is doing 10 small seedlings for $55 shipped. I got some and they sent an extra which was nice. All are crosses and labeled accurately but they may have bridgesii seedlings or specific strains if you message them.

Yes, you are sorely missed.

https://www.dmt-nexus.me...spx?g=posts&t=96861

FYI: with certain cactus being harder to find, I stretch out my cactus as explained below:

Part 3: Tetrahydroharmine (THH) effects
Part 4: Tetrahydroharmine receptorome similarities to mescaline; potentiates cactus & safety note


Part 4: Tetrahydroharmine receptorome similarities to mescaline; potentiates cactus & safety note


A little off topic, but I think tetrahydroharmine is a pretty special compound. I've used 250mg of it to potentiate cactus to very strong levels, it makes a 12" medium san pedro cactus tea which may contain around 250mg mescaline feel like an X-large 12" thick san pedro cactus containing around 400mg mescaline. It makes a 12" thick bridgesii cactus feel closer to a tea made with a 12" bridgesii cactus along with an extra 6" piece.

In the data I've seen for THH, it strongly blocks serotonin just like cactus, but also agonizes the adrenal A2A thru A2C receptors (the receptors associated with aesthetics & beauty), just like mescaline has been shown to do receptorome wise, explaining perhaps why they "overlap" so well. THH being able to make mescaline in cactus feel much stronger than it really is. Anyone who has ever taken cactus or high dose THH knows the appreciation for beauty experienced is "over the top".

But you have to stagger the THH from the cactus by taking the tetrahydroharmine around an hour after the cactus is taken, that way any minor maoi's or rima's in the cactus won't interact with the SRI which is THH, which can result in a faster heartbeat for a few hours which has happened to me before...so long as you take it later, it potentiates the cactus quite incredibly...it feels like I've taken 400mg of mescaline containing cactus tea when it's really only 250mg mescaline containing cactus, and they both lasts around 6 hours with super strong activity, so they wind down at around the same time. I have around 7 months experience combining the two, giving myself around 2 weeks apart from journeys.

It works so well, I won't take cactus any other way from now on. I get much more mileage from cactus this way. Visuals and visions are insane, music is so good sounding, you would think you were an alien experiencing sound and music for the very first time, every instrument stands out on it's own, like hearing a track for the very first time.

If anyone lives near Escalon, California or knows someone who does the Cactus Kate farm is having a sale.
Let us declare nature to be legitimate. All plants should be declared legal, and all animals for that matter. The notion of illegal plants and animals is obnoxious and ridiculous.

It has nothing to do with the pandemic.

The community around cacti shifted over the past 5 years. Something in 2017 happened where -- all of a sudden -- trichocereus became very collectable. It's changed the shape of the game in a lot of ways.

Trichocereus cuttings are very easy to find if you search a little better and don't try to get the mainstream clones. There are a lot of emergent grower that do also new cross, even with new and almost unknown genetics.

OMG JIIMZ *cry* that is where I found my beloved Bri. Luckily she is still growing strong... In three different pots now. About to be 4 and 5 in a few weeks. Smile

I am sorry I am not as active as I used to be, but I really appreciate all of the cacti loving members that have reached out. For now I will continue propagating from what I have sown!

And yeah you are totally right Jamie. Every serious psychonaught should really start propogating seeds, and I think I will do just when I get some free time. As long as you have a green thumb, there is really no reason not to. Thumbs up
