Fail to trim and you scion will fail to grow. Case in pointtrimmsneedbedone27.thumb.jpg.e807067b6b8a5edc39bd089f9ab06bd4.jpg So, you can guess that in addition to rectifying this travesty by trimming my stock plants today I also made a handful of grafts as is the case most days. While I was at it though, I also took a Pereskiopsis from full sun to partial shade to demonstrate dark green growth on bottom half indicative of full sun exposure and light green growth on top showing shade growthfullsuntoshade.thumb.jpg.74743cbaa367c8b2d01a472bd7912caa.jpg

Today... I removed the parafilm wax from a few of my grafts. 873361992_Lophophoraw_xL.fricii.thumb.jpg.18b53849fe481481882866565a838178.jpgSmallish specimen here is a Lophophora w. x L. fricii. Anyone else growing these?

I emailed them about getting seeds and they never replied. Fuck em

 

Edit: 22/8, so 4+ weeks is ample to reply.

 

Edit2: Second email got a prompt reply. Wtf sort of business is this?

Very nice Inyan!

Yeah I also grow both hybrids Koehres has on offer, fricii x koehresii F2 and williamsii x fricii.

Still too small to show anything interesting, I have one of each grafted, about the same.size as yours.

Hey Guys I need your help. 

 

I live in Turkey and it is almost impossible to find active cacti here. Today I bought these from a local nursery for quite cheap price. I am going to replant them in larger pots. BUt some of them got quite thin. should I cut and replant or just leave them as they are? do you think I can save them with lots of care? it is about to be october so weather will get colder in here. 

 

any opinion appreciated.

Just to be clear these are Myrtillocactus geometrizans, not Trichocereus in case you thought they were.

 

They look fairly healthy, since you're going into winter now I would wait until Spring before taking cuttings.

Your best bet is probably to order seeds if you can't find Tricho cuttings locally.

Thanks MeanGreen. I am a bit disappointed but I heard they make good root stock for grafting.

Looks like all you need are some high quality seeds to graft now that you have started collecting your grafting stock already.

So, this happened... (Peru x Juuls) x TPM. The ugly leftover bit is a good platform to either get (hopefully) reverts from. BAP the shit out of it

I have heard the fruits are tasty as well http://www.botmuc.de/en/audio_tour/281.html

In the book Tihkal by Shulgin,  Myrtillocactus geometrizans contains mes cal ine, What amounts or other things are present i have no idea, i have not studied or looked for further info on it.

It can survive, but I wouldn't bet much money on it. 

 

You cut a lot of tissue off which helps the seedling dry out faster.

 

Increasing humidity or simply placing parafilm stretched out over your grafted scion would have prevented the seedling from drying out. 

 

If you have a big seedling like you appear to have had, try cutting it down so the seedling forms a square or a rectangle with the small size down/horizontal and the long sides up/vertical if grafting with areoles pointing upwards.

 

I sometimes graft seedlings on their side to good effect as well, but that is just for play. You want a nice fat seedling for that and you barely go into the tissue at all.

Hi, this graft is about 3 months old. Today i noticed one side of the loph looking dehydrated.  Its the side copping the sun so ive moved it to a filtered spot.

The stock is firm and has bulked up a little but is a cutting itself so not well rooted i assume.  Ive watered it twice over the last 3 weeks.

Located in Sth Tas so temps arent much over 18c but in the window temps are 30c+.

Have i given it too much sun for the age of the graft and root development of the 15393909131923694797766520926429.thumb.jpg.b4c0462c15216fdfbf132d3cf5e6a2db.jpgstock?

Any advice greatly appreciated

Looks like the echinopsis ruby visions x terscheckii  and echinopsis calochlora are going to flower, will be trying at making a cross both ways of these two :  )

It has flowered once before, has a beautiful purple/reddish colour, will post a pic when it blooms :  )

Would like to cross it with a trich one day when the flower timing works out, last season had a couple of trichos flower but ruby skipped that year :ana: no signs of flowers so far on any of the trichos
