You already Gno!
some other fun grafts outside of the tricho family of cacti
From a tiny little nipple thing, an Opuntia Monacantha Monstrose
the mother of this cactus has alot of nipples
Melocactus Intortus seed collected from the Virgin Islands
How to save a life
The next round.. . squared
here are some Macrogonus ssp Ebay.... definitely not the Icaros Macrogonus variety lulzThey are from two different USA vendors... well at least from two different ebay accounts... not sure
Some on their own roots... I got these as seedlings a year earlier.. I thought they were looking funny
Then these came from the other vendor, I think both from the same state tho...
I know for sure one of the vendors has multiple accounts but these might be a little different I dunno
one of them is a grafted pup off another which did the splits!
this guy is from the same batch.. a late pumper... I just grafted a couple more month old seedling of these in the past
10 days.. not many sprouted eh ... me like the spinys... I guess they are candicans or validus or something like that...
a real joy to look at!
Man they are some nice looking grafts I really love the 1st pic in the 3rd lot. Do you know if the vendor still has any seeds for sale?
Well I better update my first post in this thread as that was the reason for starting it .
My first post was all about my Lophophora grafts, well the good news is that they are all going well. The only exception was one of the jourdanian, it was a successful graft but had grown very little over the past 8 months so last week I re-grafted it, I will post pics of it in a few days. Anyway here is a bit of information & photos of my loph grafts.
sown: 3/11/12 grafted: 29/1/13
Day it was grafted
Photos taken today 6/9/13
L. fricii X 2
Photos taken today 6/9/13 (swelled a lot over the last month so I let it dry right out. It has stretch marks )
Photos taken today 6/9/13 (it is growing slower than the other fricii)
L. koehresii X 2
Photos taken today (I love this little cacti photos don't do it justice!)
This graft was growing very well, last most I gave it some fertilizer & a week later it had a big split on
one side then a week later the other side split open, this is my first graft to ever split.
It is healing well & I am quite excited to watch how it progresses for here.
Photos of the splits
L. williamsii var texana X 2
I can't find the photos of when I first grafted these.
L.ziegleri is an old name for williamsii, the person who gave me this seed collected it from
there old plant which they purchased years ago labeled ziegleri, I decided to
leave it with this name so I can keep track of it amongst the other lophs.
L. williamsii X 2
sown: 18/4/12 grafted: 13/8/12
These are a bit older than the other grafts, I am hoping they will flower & set seed
this year, if they do I will be de-grafting them & getting them on there own roots.
Photo taken 23/2/13
Thanks for looking, I look forward to seeing some updated photos of your grafts .
Yay update for my icaros dna seedling. It took on a pachanoi graft. So excited! !!!!
i'd cut that pup that its grafted too from the main plant should increase growth.
That pup wasnt there 2 months ago. That why I grafted on to it cause all ths growth was going to the pup. And the loph on top of the main graft had slowed growth. Now the loph started growing again. If I take that pup out and its sept. On Nov itll be to cold to grow outside maybeby nnext spring ill try to root the pup. Since it just gave signs that the graft took and that both sions are growing im pretty comfortable
Alright, time for an update then. Sorry Jox, I will never be as neat and organised as you, I have since given away several of the grafts from my first post in this thread, and I had a spazz day and deleted all my loph and trich pics at one point of paranoia. I have most photos on file so I will rectify what I can. I feel a bit stupid now lol
So, heres what I have got.
Since my first post on the 27th febuary 2013, some things have grown alot, some bugger all!!

Soo, the most obvious lesson learnt is that tricho grafts don't grow over winter whereas pereskiopsis grafts do!
And here are some other grafts who's progress i will be tracking over summer.
Sorry i have no idea when most of them were grafted.. i will backtrack with any photos i can..
(Note to self: in future write down the dates when you do grafts damn it!?!)

Can't wait to see update in six months, your going to have some beautiful grafts Ceres
Hahaha cheers buddies, i couldnt have done it without SAB, when i started here my collection consisted of one san pedro and one scopulicola
Hey Jox, do you have any recent photo's of your pure albino?
LW seedlings on pachanoi grafted a week ago
And a L. Decipiens on pachanoi grafted in May grafted 60 days old
Keen to see also!
Yeh c'mon Jox, show us your beautiful freak
*PEER PRESSURE, PEER PRESSURE*
.. I hope its still alive ...!?
Bring it brother, the whole team is waiting!
Alright I will show you but looking back through this thread I realized that I have never posted about it here & it goes to show that you people asking for updates spend to much time on this site!! Just like myself .
I wont put up photos of it as a seedling or young graft here because I am planning on starting a thread just about this awesome cactus & I will put all the info there & keep updating that, seems you are so keen I took these tonight
Took these photos with a light on in the back ground
Hope that satisfies you all LOL!!
God dam its still white. That is just amazing........................ Brilliant stuff Jox :worship: :worship:
My left testie or my first born are up for grabs if it ever pups. What about redheads I have one of those as well.
Jox that would have to be the coolest trich iv seen. Can't wait to see it in a years time
That is amazing. Can I use a couple of those photos ^ for a presentation?
It doesn't appear to produce any chlorophyll or carotenoids. or extremely low levels of carotenoids maybe? Hows it handling light? I had Lobivia with pretty extreme albinism but when I put them out side they melted.
Incredible Jox. Simply incredible!
While i'll accept that i do spend too much time on the forum, i do have a pretty good memory, and if this memory serves me correctly myself and others were asking about albi (have you named it!?) in the tek thread a while ago and you never brought out the eye candy!
Wow, that is spectacular! Never seen anything like that..
