Description

A hybrid cross of pach. FIELDS and SAPITO#2. A seed cross from Australian breeder Rodni Kisar.

T. pach Fields is an Australian clone from the Fields Collection, is a very old strain with a rich history. Ralph Fields, the founder of the Fields Collection, was a supporter of Harry Blossfeld’s early South America trips and it is thought this clone comes from one of those early trips, however this has not been verified due to lack of quotable sources.

Fields is a typical pach with large areoles which are covered in fluff and short golden spines. The body displays very dominant V notches and the colour changes from bright green to glaucous blue.

SAPITO#2 was a seed grown cactus that Rodni Kisar received from a SAB forum member who had named it peruvianus Sapito. Rodni cloned the cactus, giving it the name Sapito#2 and removed the incorrect species of peruvianus. This clone displays long 10cm+ spines at the base, growing out to be almost spineless at the tip.

A hybrid is formed when crossing two genetically different species with each other. Most hybrids are manmade however some are natural.

With cross pollination the mother plant is the first name, and the father plant is the second. The mother is the plant whose flower was pollenated, and the fruit ripens on, and the father is the pollen donor. When the crossing plants, in most cases, the resulting offspring comes closer to the mother than to the father. However, there are a lot of exceptions to this and sometimes, the genes of the father are simply more dominant.

Germination.
Best to use a container with drainage holes, takeaway containers work well with holes punctured in them. Layer with high quality potting mix and top layer with zeolite – layers of 2 cm each is fine. Sow seeds on top of the moist zeolite, do not cover seeds. Place this container into a sealed, larger clear container with water in its base. Prop up the seed container, so it isn’t sitting in the water. The humid environment you create with containers will keep the seeds moist from then on. Place lid on and do not remove. Do not water again until re-potting is needed. Removing the lid will destroy the humid environment you are trying to create.

Every seed packet is hand counted and is guaranteed to contain at least the number of seeds specified, however human error can occur and please don’t hesitate to contact us if there are any discrepancies.
To the best of our knowledge these seeds are viable to the standard percentage for its species, either SAB nursery grown or purchased from a reputable trusted breeder. However, if you disagree, please do not hesitate to contact us for up-to-date germination rates or for a germination test to be conducted.
