This is a fresh cut of bridgesii 'Jeans', one of two received in a recent order. Neither have rooted yet but this is occurring on one of the two specimens. I have previously purchased two same cuts of this jeans bridge long ago that have rooted and are growing well, no dramas (not that this means anything). I thought it might of been sun damage, as other unrooted pieces purchased and planted at the same time have really lightened up in colour on the side in direct sunlight. So I moved this Jeans into a full shade position and the skin patch seems to be growing, even out out of the sun entirely. It is not bruised either, the cactus was packed well and arrived without this blemish. Just for visual comparison below is an example of a cut that had been BASHED in transit, then the mushy bruised flesh dried and healed scarred looking like this: But the above healed bruising is not the same as what is occurring on the Jeans. What could this issue be, is it my first bout of sunburn, and the damage is delayed still yet to level out even in the shade? Sunburn is a more even spread isn't it? This shit is growing it seems too, well it has grown a tiny bit bigger since being in the shade the last half week. Thanks in advance peeps - omg! everything is pupping too with the change of seasons - I love cacti! - This is my first year collecting.
