Musical instruments

These are off-topic for any subject on this website but I came across some Ethiopian musical instruments I know nothing about.

If anyone knows something about either sort please let me know via an email.

These two small drums have a striker inside.

This is apparently played with a bow. Musical folk instruments in Ethiopian are said to often be made by the musician from found items and this certainly fits the bill. The tuning peg is a bent rusty nail.

Hybrids 2

F1 hybrids

(The first ten are larger images of the same plants as were shown on the previous page. Those share the same parents. There may be two peruvianus forms involved with the plants in the other images and some of those are additional views of other plants shown. Pachanot was a parent in all cases.)

 

F1 hybrids produced by George Fuller (using both directions of crossing) for Trichocereus pachanot X Trichocereus peruvianus:

more questions

One positive change occurred last year in the form of a large California bay that was removed. This provided the cactus garden area with in-between several to a few additional hours of sun through the year. They’ve responded really well so the potted cacti were moved out of the shade house with plans for expanding the cactus bed to incorporate them too. This is easily the most unfriendly environment I’ve exposed cacti to.

This was one of the five that were merged together in a single pot in the shadehouse. I could not find a tag. I’d guess from body and spines that this probably involved Juul’s and something like peruvianus. Thanks for any thoughts.
(The largest one in that group was tagged Kimura’s Giant but I have not yet taken images of it. I believe the ID is right on that plant.)
Two of the others had the same name tag and the last lacked a name tag but could have been a sibling unless I mistook its tag for one of those two when separating them. I’ll get some photos of those three and their tags together soon.

This one possessed a tag with the name pallarensis. It was attacked by some sort of apical rot in the shade house this last winter but seems to have survived.

J 6-8

The tags on these next three may have gotten switched around in-between two of them as I suspect you will agree.

Thanks for any thoughts on those!

I seem to vaguely recall that “Oz pach” as *maybe* being Dutchie’s “Big Bluey” or some other seeds that were distributed by him a fairly long time ago?

To me it looks like the tag on J-6 may have been for J-7?
