As far as I've seen, all columnar Trichocereus species can hybridize. Certainly all traditionally sacred species can.
In fact, modern genetic testing has collapsed peruvianus, pachanoi, and scopulicola all into macrogonus (because it was named first). T. bridgesii and terscheckii get their own individual species names still, but they can hybridize with the others.
As for inheritance patterns of antifeedant alkaloids that are arguably there to inhibit damage by insects, I dont think any dedicated work has been done to define the breeding implications. And I'm not sure we are supposed to talk about that here ;) But seed from known strongly antifeedant parents are popular among growers.

Reading some topics, I learn that different species of cacti can be crossbreed

I have few question about that.

In which cas hybridization can be possible and how does it work?
Crossbreeding entheogenics cacti preserve alkaloids or not? Or is it possible to increase cacti's power?
Where can I find more information about hybridization of cacti?

I'm learning a lot of tek here.

I got a message from a member on here, and would really like to reply to it. What do the mods and admins say to promoting me, pretty please? ;)

Absolutely i agree :)

Probably a mix of selling more when you state a shelf life, combined with rules that you have to put something like that on a lot of consumable products, but also other factors like people don't think beer is fresh if you don't put like a shelf life of 6 months on there even though it's much longer.. plus we have to consider that there are some unreasonable quality standards wanting a product to be used when it is kinda perfect and pretending that it's no good when it deteriorates just a little. (Of course people are often obsessed with ideas about how things should be even though these ideas are not objective or justified at all)

Anyway yea these forces conspire to get these date stamps.

As I am finding is true with a lot of things, people generally have very limited understanding of the subtleties of chemistry and the mentality sensitive to 'cognitive ease' demands matters to be polarized so that we can all understand it and agree to form a consensus.
You just have to know which compounds are stable and which are not, and indeed expiration dates don't necessarily tell you anything.

Well back to the topic at hand: I do recall that certain plant hormones I work with are not stable in aqueous solution, and this is also relevant for those substances that can deteriorate like you say when you don't screw the cap back on well - they tend to oxidize or hydrolyze and I think the latter is true for aspirin.
That said, another trick of chemistry (or rather our kneejerk brains) is that we assume that an overt smell of vinegar indicates that the degradation of aspirin was significant, just like we assume when a chemical product is very discolored that the impurities in there must be in significant amounts, but this is often not true and very tiny amounts of certain heavily colored compounds can quickly discolor the overall appearance.

Thank you for the compliment Halbwissen

I am trying to get an accustom to the layout of how the site works and learning about what I can and cannot do as a new member. I definitely do not want to get rid of anything that is good!! I have Brazilian pepper trees taking over the yard and aside from those it is just raking cleaning up dead palm brush prepping the soil and breathing some new life into the dead grass. I have set up a beautiful medicine wheel :)

Welcome, WhisperingFeather, awesome user name you got there!

Although I'm a newbie myself I'd recommend getting an overview of what actually grows in your yard, wouldn't want to kill a plant that's actually magical, would you? ;) Either way, do some reading here and there, maybe post a few questions or ideas and get yourself accustomed to the layout of this site, especially the search engine. There's so much valuable information and so many beautiful pictures around, I'm sure you'll get some inspiration out of it!

Hello all,

I am so very excited to be a part of this group! I have always had a great interest in ethnobotanicals and culturally significant plants. I have never had a garden before so I am new to eyerything. I am currently working on cleaning up the brush and overgrowth in my new yard so I can get started  :)
