Variegating (?) Pachanoi

This spineless san pedro cutting came in like this, it wasn't like that in the pic I was sent but I doubt the just 4 days it spent in a box could have caused it.


Do you think it will keep growing some albino growth, or revert?

Maybe the pic was taken shortly after he took the cutting. Then maybe you purchased the cutting months after it was cut.
If they spend too long in a dark place without being planted, they sort of start growing albino on the tip. What ever new growth that has received no light at all grows albino like that I've heard.

I think once you get it in the sun it should green up.

Thanks, I was suspecting this is the case.

So that means if you graft a regular cactus and somehow block the light on the scion it will come out variegated, right? I think some people on ebay use this trick to sell artificially variegated plants
