Hildewintera ‘Humkes Röschen’ Cleistocactus

Hildewintera Hybrid HUMKES RÖSCHEN (translates to Humke´s Rosie) is one of the hybrids that flowers all season long. I´ve had at least 50 flowers on a very little plant during this season, and quite a lot of them took and produced viable seeds. It´s a great and very useful hybrid. In this video I pollinated it with Lobivia/Trichocereus hybrid ALTENA.

My Grandpa in Law passed Away!

Here´s a video that I filmed a couple years ago when my wife’s grandfather passed away. He was very old, but he was a really special guy and as someone who lost both of his grandfathers very early on, I liked having someone from this older generation around to tell me barely funny jokes. I try to be very open about the things going on in my life, and this was one of the sadder moments.

While doing this, I pollinate a Wörlitz follow-up hybrid by Uwe Kahle. His breeder´s code for this cross is KA.2013.205.06 and the parents are Wörlitz x (Gröner Orange x Legon). The flower has a very strong contrast, which doesn’t even show accordingly in the video because it’s just too powerful.

This hybrid comes from an Uwe Kahle cross from 2012. The breeder´s code is KA.2012.61.09 and the parents are Takoradi x Flying Saucer. Both are excellent parents and most seedlings from this cross that I have seen looked great. Definitely a gorgeous hybrid and I´ve been making lots of crosses with this particular plant.

Lobivia Hybrid BLAZE aka BLAZA

Lobivia hybrid BLAZE is probably one of the most popular and best Lobivia hybrids out there. The parents of BLAZE are unknown, but I personally think that it is involving a Lobivia winteriana. The flowers are relatively small but absolutely beautiful. BLAZE is also called BLAZA, but I think that´s probably due to a typo.
