Grafting Lophophora jourdaniana var. mammilaris 18 OCT 18

Recommended Posts

Grafting Lophophora jourdaniana var. mammillaris on 18 OCT 18 at 1700.

 

I'm a bit more hopeful with this graft made today and if everything proceeds as planned I will be showing pictures as this one progresses.

 

Note, it is cold out as winter is approaching so we shall see how this graft does given the cold temperatures.

Why is it called " var. mammillaris"?

The simple answer is because that is how it was labeled when I purchased it.

LOPHOPHORA jourdaniana 10K - v mammilaris 10K (3185)  https://www.koehres-kaktus.de/shop/Cactus-seeds/Lophophora---1_364-2.html

or  LOPHOPHORA jourdaniana 10K  (4930) https://www.koehres-kaktus.de/shop/Cactus-seeds/Lophophora---1_364.html

 

Mammilaris though... refers to nipples so you know I had to have it.

nice work on the v. mamm. I've got a few going from last season, plenty of strange growth, i think there'll be a few varis in there too. I'll post some pics of mine when they get a bit bigger...

Quick questions for you @MountainGoat 

1. Did you graft yours?

2. Were yours sourced from Koehres?

3. Why not post here now?

 

I love to see seedlings as they progress through their stages. Or am I just a little nutty that way? At any rate, I'd love to see a bunch of different Lophophora jourdaniana var. mammilaris on a single thread. Especially so if there is any variation from seedling to seedling or if sourced from a place other than Koehres.

For me at least, I think it would help to identify L. jourdaniana var. mammilaria when compared to Lophophora jourdaniana.  I mean, I get the difference in the name, but for me... it helps to see a lot of pictures showing the differences as sometimes they are subtle to me. Could be I just need more exposure though.

yeah, i grafted mine. They had a hard life though and are just starting to look ok. I've got a double header on some huge stock, graft was done in winter and is just starting to grow. The other few i'll have to find them in the sea of grafted lophs... 

 

Seeds were from koehres. i only got 10 seeds, i think... I'll see how many are alive and kicking....

mine are all emerging from skin issues, so its near impossible to tell any differences yet, but they definitely seem more nipple-y...
