HAVE: Trichocereus peruvianus, mostrose, Opuntia argentinea

The crested peruvianus was sold to me as Lemaineocereus peruvianus, monostera. Cactus types have since then stated it is Trichocereus peruvianus monostera (or monstrosa I have seen it called either). Anyway its a nice lush green crested cactus which makes an "Alien brain gone wild" type of growth. Some of it grew normal and has a nice large white flower which lasts 3 days. I knock the "normal" pups off the main plant to keep the crested part going full strength.

I have several rooted crested pieces and also straight growing pieces.

I also grow Opuntia argentinea which makes a tree like structure, has many small yellow flowers in the spring. I have a couple of young plants, 2 years old. This one grows easily from a leaf, I have any number of these.

I would like to trade for any eclectic succulent or cactus, must be able to withstand Southern California winters under a roof but without heat. Am not interested in huge plants, more the unusual smaller types, really interested in the Stapelia group.
