Hi corrobee. I was able to obtain some nice genetics of south american columner succulents over a few months. All have started rooting and are in full sun. Starter them in a sunny window for a month. Jealous of you Australians you all seem to have the best genetics. None the less I was able to procure some good ones. Anyway, my question about my cuttings is this. While most are doing well, there are a few that the old growth is either thin and weak looking and or soft, although not showing rot or any disease. The new growth is firm and healthy feeling. Has anyone dealt with this? Will this effect their life in the long run? Any suggestions or comments? I guess that's all for now, thanks!
Here is a wide and closeup of my new wild Matucana pachanoi pup. Here is the original mother of this pre-collection in habitat: And here is the same of my new pananoi var. L.E.R. The LER I got from Mallacht is WAY fatter than the three I got directly from L.E.R. back in the 90's. The spines seem smaller too, but that is going from memory. They might have been selling cuttings from several seed-grown or separately selected clones. I wouldn't have purchased them at all but they put a "sale" flyer in with some seeds I had purchased.
I have some caapi hardwood cuttings I took just before Spring started, they're in sphagnum They haven't moved at all, though there seems to be swelling and water movement in parts of the stem relative to how damp the sphagnum is. Maybe they're waiting for some warmer weather But the sphagnum is starting to send threads into some of the cuttings, and attach itself to the outer bark Is this normal? Does it mean that the cutting is dead? Should I let the sphagnum threads penetrate the cuttings? Will that help? I don't have a lot of experience with sphagnum, and google wasn't any help that I can see thanks
