White seedlings

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I got what appears to be my first white / variegated (not sure on the correct terminology) seedlings. They are from a batch of super ped x fields pach.

 

How long do I have to get them grafted before they will fade and die? I'm a total grafting noob so maybe I should practice with some others to get it right while I still have time..

There's more and more albinos popping up from that batch. I just read somewhere that it can be caused by excess humidity..  Will wait and see what they do, might let the soil dry out to see if they green up. I'm not sure how big they need to be to graft to pere.

If its large enuf to cut with a blade its large enuf to graft.....if you wait too long the next time you look they wont be there.....

 

no green chlorophyll means no growth and death not far behind...

This year i have germinated a few cacti. Had a batch of pach that had 7 albino in 45 odd that germinated. Also had quite a few lophs. Interestingly they started life lighter green than their companions and after i left them in a spot where they got a little bit to hot they went white. Another went variegated red and stayed that way.
