Unfortunately, I've sown all of the Sharxx Blue seed, but I have two other varieites on my desk. One is called "Alchemist" and the other is "Inti Solaris" and both were wild-harvested in Peru. "Inti Solaris" has very long spines and "Alchemist" has very short spines and looks quite thick. I have no idea if the seeds will propagate to be similar to the parents or not, but it will be fun to find out!

I hear TC can ramp up growth to insane levels, like Nepenthes.Yes, TC dramatically accelerates the speed at which plants grow. With Venus flytraps, you can have a full grown plant in only about 12 months and, not only that, but it will have divided into dozens and dozens of plants.

I knew nothing about growing Echinopsis but they are super easy so far and very rewarding because they grow fast compared to CPs!!
