    Melb winter rot for grafted lophophora

    I keep mine indoors and out of the direct light for at least few months. It seems to be a while, well after union is achieved that a robust resistance to sun, ect is achieved. Perhaps the initial union is followed by the creation of more complex, substantial vasculation over a period of time. For me this seems the case on both peres and tricho stock. Not having alot of sun protection, my loph grafts get soft if i leave them in the greenhouse over summer. That arvo sun can spank em. I prefer to graft at the start of the growing season, i think things happen quicker and my offcuts heal and root faster too. Rot can seem to also happen as the peres deprives the loph scion of goodies in favour of its own new growth. It can be annoying trying to terminate growth on peres stock. I muse that this is moreso the case with slow growing grafts like Lw,. Throw in a little too much sun as well and you can reach that tipping point into rot pretty quick.

    Hello Corroboree from North Coast NSW.

    Hey mate, sheesh took a while. A hearty welcome from me.
  6. Most of the cacti ive had with fungal issues are the ones whose defenses have been lowered with poor care, commonly its a desperate need of repotting. I seasol and keep out in the breeze till things look up.

    Varigated seedlings (or not)

    You misunderstood me I think. I wasnt asking about grafting, rather: Why is varigation occurring? 'Is varigation caused by a contact virus?' If so 'Is all varigation caused by the same factors?' I grafted a couple yesterday see how they go.

    B.caapi dropped 85% of its leaves, HELP! :(

    I have some success reducing indoor pests by putting plants outside in the wind for the day ( But caapi might not be so easy to move.) Ive thought about getting a few little usb fans to make life less cosy.

    Varigated seedlings (or not)

    I separated the above treshicchii and my take is that the colouring is from a virus spread by contact. These prior to separating contacted at the point where it's pink. For better or worse i grafted the two other smaller pieces. Check out the cut! I have one other pot of seedlings showing similar colour. A knuthianus x. The two teeny ones will probably cark it if i dont act. The larger appears to be bending (apex pointing towards the camera) so as to shield the yellow area from light.

    Salvia divinorum

    I been burnt a fair bit over the past couple of years and like you feel its not worth getting too upset. I did post about it once but admin took it down. Its a shame because it disproportionately detracts from the site/community. These days i dont trade much because its dodgy, (its the thought that annoys me most, not the $ or plants.) The free trade thread now falls over quickly due to people taking but not giving. I ķnda know whos trustworthy from past trades and think carefully before trading with anyone else.

    Frost tolerant Trichocereus?

    Size matters.
