What did you do to your cacti today?

Hey Fancypants, I have a few small grafts that stalled and are now growing again and showing the same growth pattern as yours.

Nice idea on not using take away containers. Do you have any top cover over the trays for germination ? How about sterilising the soil, and what is your mix? Your seedlings look great for their age! Cheers :)

I use about 60% pearlite, and 40% potting soil, No strylization at all. I just cover the top usualyl with pearlite or vermiculite. Then algea grows on it but it can be removed and replaced easy enough. I do used humidty dome or platic wrap with minor airflow from start then after 1-1.5 months I start to wean then to inside humidity once they show a lil size. Then they sit inside anywhere from 1-4 months to bulk up 2 inches under the flourescent. Once they have tiny bit of size over 1 inch they go outside for sun hardening. Now these trays get busted up into 3.5x3.5 inch pots, 4-5 to a pot. Then in 6 months its 1 to a pot.

jaguar shaman is in an E-type lol ,,

blood type could be M+ ;) ,

shin huachuma 33-hit combo cuz it is complex and star treks with pretty flecks and purple specs

that doesn't make a lot of sense :P

but i was asking whether it's a cusco, i.e. or peru (doesn't look like it) or a pachanoi (could be)

and etc.

Peruvianus/wild pachanoi I'd reckon Stu. It introduced someone to a dragon apparently.

Hmm that would probably make sense; that it had stalled a bit. I think it looks cool, like it's giving birth lol

packaged a nice sized loph and posted it to a far away land in the hope that some virola seeds might come to fruition via the same avenue..

watered seedlings ...

and cranked the heat up , gna go for 25-30C and see if the big cacties will allow me to feed them early seeing as this winter is so fkn mild AND they're in the living rom :3 I mean indoor garden yeah..

probably haven't got the right light levels though but just cant even begin to afford ganja growing LEDs for the cacticalities, not even one... and i need at least 2!!

also very luckily procured one of the finest legendary trichosaurs thanks to an equally legendary Sabber...

so better wish to the cactus faerie..

I wish now safe passage of this beast to my hands ...

unscathed and unfettered to land on my sands,

in spirit and body or call me by phone,

just whatever the fk ya do, make it safe to my home :P

So one of our Loph grafts' stock finally went cactus and fell over where we hadn't noticed and rotted. I've never grafted or degrafted before so I'm nervous. I don't have any rooting powder. I just cut the heads off leaving the smallest surface area, and did the same with the big head although it has the places where the smaller ones were cut. Am I ok to just leave them to dry and callous somewhere warm and dry until they root? N00b I know but I don't want to lose these guys

I rooted some loph de grafts recently. i took the peres stock out.. it was much deeper then i would have liked. I also took the bottom pups off. I put sulphur on the cut surfaces right after cutting. i left them with the wound exposed in on a bench in room with the fan on.. wound was reasonably hard in a week. I then flipped em and put them on top of bone dry soil mix. after 2 weeks i now have roots. they root whilst on top of a shelf with a bit of bottom heat. idk if that's necessary but it didn't hurt. I pulled about 3 pups off the button. two where quite small and dried up :( but one has also rooted. in the same amount of time.
