Not so happy loph - Advice please.

Recommended Posts

Posting for a friend here, this is their loph family that's looking a bit depressed, at first glance I thought the soil looks all wrong, suffocating and not very aerated, but I said to them id ask here before re-potting to get the best advice and approach for a remedy as they don't want to make the wrong decision.

 

I haven't seen it in person. yet. To get a better look, maybe this week.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks guys.

Hi mate, that's a terrible soil for Lophophora. Your buddy needs a mineral soil consisting of stuff like Pumice, Lava and similar minerals. The soil needd to dry lightning fast.

Thanks EG yeah I thought the same, i'm actually amazed its gotten as far as it has in that soil. Do you think bare rooting would be the best step to take while they source a mineral base? or just leave it without any watering until they are ready to re-pot?

 

Thanks man. I've got a few seed grown in scoria and sand/pebbles but they're alot smaller, i've never dealt with anything of this size.

 

Cheers.
