    Upside down Lophophora grafting

    All you need is a single areole on either side and your in business.
  2. You never have to put your graft in humidity if your using parafilm. You also never have to remove the parafilm. With that being said, one slice down the side after the graft has taken off should allow the parafilm to be rolled back and easily removed. If its hard to remove your parafilm your trying too hard. You can also simply make your one slice and leave your parafilm in place. The parafilm will fall off on its own. Hope that helps guys. For those that have been wondering what I've been up to... I've subjected my entire collection to freezing weather in hopes of getting a few specimens that can take nice frost, snow, etc. and come up with a very tiny limited gene pool to work with. Very devastating to say the least if I was actually concerned with specimens that lacked hardiness... which I am not. So, here's to having a very few Trichocereus and Echinopsis that made it through the freezing conditions I've exposed them to this year. And when I say a few... I can count my entire collection now on two hands. Ahh, such is life.

    Grafting Stock Pros/Cons

    Pachanoi is most assuredly suited for small seedlings and small areoles to boot....
  4. Lophophora w. x L. fricii from KoehresSorry, I was getting impatient waiting for mine to grow.
  5. Looks like growth is stalling with lows in the mid 30's and highs in the low to mid 40's at night. Still, I thought I'd share a few pictures so you guys didn't think I forgot about this thread. Just not much to show when its this cold out.

    The Sowing Out Thread

    I won't bore you with a long list. Instead, one very high quality cross that I am extremely excited about.... In the cup of water as we speak.

  9. Lophophora williamsii x Lophophora fricii 21 OCT18 26 days
  10. For me at least, I think it would help to identify L. jourdaniana var. mammilaria when compared to Lophophora jourdaniana. I mean, I get the difference in the name, but for me... it helps to see a lot of pictures showing the differences as sometimes they are subtle to me. Could be I just need more exposure though.
  11. Quick questions for you @MountainGoat 1. Did you graft yours? 2. Were yours sourced from Koehres? 3. Why not post here now? I love to see seedlings as they progress through their stages. Or am I just a little nutty that way? At any rate, I'd love to see a bunch of different Lophophora jourdaniana var. mammilaris on a single thread. Especially so if there is any variation from seedling to seedling or if sourced from a place other than Koehres.

    Pruning Trichocereus roots

    I have literally grow many of my Trichocereus in a bog without ever trimming their roots. In fact, growing in a bog like that tends to stunt their roots. If your roots are root bound, it is common practice to cut through them or untangle them so as to free them up, but I can't see doing anything more than that. Light pinch off the bottom of the roots or and run your fingers through the sides of the roots. If the roots are too small to do that you can use another tool like a chopstick, etc. This applies to other plants besides just cacti as well. If you want to prune your Astrophytum tap roots on the other hand go right ahead as I have seen Astrophytum grown hydroponically that way as it is the finer roots that you need in home cultivation.
  13. The simple answer is because that is how it was labeled when I purchased it. LOPHOPHORA jourdaniana 10K - v mammilaris 10K (3185) https://www.koehres-kaktus.de/shop/Cactus-seeds/Lophophora---1_364-2.html or LOPHOPHORA jourdaniana 10K (4930) https://www.koehres-kaktus.de/shop/Cactus-seeds/Lophophora---1_364.html Mammilaris though... refers to nipples so you know I had to have it.
  14. Lophophora jourdaniana var. mammillaris on 20 OCT 18 day 2 Note, rained today and as I keep my grafts outdoors this time of year graft was fully drenched.
