5 year old pereskopsis Grafts

Recommended Posts

Who says Pere is a temporary stock?

These were grafted Oct 2012 as 8 day old seedlings. They look shiny, as i'd just washed off some tomato dust before photographing. The spinosad doesn't seem to have knocked the mealy around at all, and neither has the sulphur, but both chemicals seem to smash the spider mite. I think the pot size is 83mm but dont quote me.

This Willamsii var Mazapil was purchased off Watertrade in late 2012 and is still on its original stock, however was cut down, rerooted on a rockwool cube, and then planted back out once roots emerged from the bottom of the rockwool, the stock is about 3 cm long these days.

Nice to see a few seed grown specimens in your collection. Your grafts definitely look to be doing very well indeed. Congrats on getting  8 day old seedling to take as well.

the shortness of the stock plays a role in it be long living.. hiding the stock is also pretty cool Idea, as grafts are usually ugly... 

 

longer stocks would give far best speed of growth though.. 

 

lopho on tricho works amazing as well, grafts on pere are temporary indeed if they grow fast enough: stock cannot handle to carry the weight of scion...

Wow amazing plant, any plans for degrafting? I am thinking about leaving my graft as it is. How long is it possible?

Don't plan on de grafting it. I guess as long as it is healthy it can stay there for decades
