good advice geezer has  :)
in my experience the color of the cacti doesn't seem to be of much importance..
they are pretty much the same color all the time, except they can turn a dark red/purple if sunburned or cold burned..
but this doesn't seem to effect growth very much. i just water less in the winter time, let soil dry out between watering,
sometimes i go 2-3 weeks between watering, and they grow fine. ive noticed if i water to much in winter it can lead to rot.

Best use Sphagnum Moss to germinate Erys. And most importantly, no tap water, only rainwater or treated demineralised water. The calcium in tap water kills E. coca and novo. Also no fertilizer with calcium. The substrate humos with many coarse components. 

The germination can be done by using pots with substrate and a layer of sphagnum on top. Put the seeds in the moss and let the roots grow down into the substrate. This way you combine the best of two substrates during germination and don't stress the young freshly germinated plants with a transfer.

Hello all i just ordered my first E. novo seeds. I could only afford 15 and its still pretty chilly here in the north east. But i was going to start my eggplants and other random solanums and wanted to try my hand at something new. I wanted to know if anyone has germinated seeds by soaking them in water untill a tap root comes out? Thank you in advance to anyone who responds.
cheers. ß

If they're needing water they'll be thin and yield to pressure , not plump and firm

You're correct that if they need nitrogen they'll get yellowish. Otherwise color changes are also caused by changes in the amount of sunlight/shade they get.

I get it that you don't see color well but can you see the difference between a light and darker shade of the same color? If so I'd guess you could like at pics online and get a pretty good idea of the depth of color in a healthy cactus and compare it to yours.

As long as your soil drains quickly and well it's almost impossible to water them too much. They'd have to get zero rain and low humidity for a year or so before you would notice the plumpness of a well hydrated column turning to softness. Get your soil right and water 'em like tomatoes if you want.

Hey fellas I need a bit of advise. So I've just started growing trichocereus cactus this year and am learming the basics of taking care of them.

I've been told that when tricho cactuses are in need of food or water and when dormant they change to different shades of green to signify it

This would be no problem for most people but sadly I suffer from protonopia otherwise none as red green colorblindness

So my main question is. Is their any other signs besides color that my tricho are in need of food and or water?
