17/10/19 – Some photos from our grow room…

Hey everyone!

We thought it was high time we posted a few more pictures from our grow room, purely for the plant pervs among you (hopefully, anybody reading this)!

It’s particularly interesting to us to see the apparently monstrose-type growth on a few of our Lophophora williamsii (‘Peyote’), induced by mechanical damage to the plants. We’re not sure if they will grow in this fashion forever, but we’re keen to watch their progress, whatever path it may follow! We’ve included a (sadly lower-quality) photo of one of these cacti further down the page, but will probably post some better pictures soon too.

We’re also pretty chuffed to have in our possession a young Psychotria viridis ‘UDV’ (also pictured lower down this page), as well as five larger plants of the ‘standard’ species variety (not pictured). And that’s before we mention our rather precious Phyllodium pulchellum seedlings; the seed might be quite hard to get going, but perseverance pays off eventually…

That’s enough for now anyway, so we hope you like the photographs and that they inspire you to try growing something new for your own collection!

All the best,
Arkham’s Botanical
