    Aio grafts onto pere keep failing (troubleshooting help)

    Have you tried stab grafting them?
  4. Hey all! I've got some extra Astrophytum capricorne seed leftover that I'm not going to sow for the year. So I've got x7 packets of x25 seeds for anyone who will sow & enjoy them. To claim a pack, just number off from 1 to 7 (so others know who's claimed a pack) and then drop me a PM with your postage deets. Cheers, Q

    Pronouncing 'pachanoi'

    I used to say 'patch-annoy' and then someone told me "no, its actually pronounced 'pack-annoy'. Then years later an older Chilean cactiphile said to me "no, its pronounced 'pack-a-know-y". So that's how I now pronounce it.

    Site offline?

    Apparently it was just a problem with the DNS server that was fixed and took a cpl of days to re-route.

    Spores to Syringe

    If its spore print, scrape spores carefully into a shot glass/egg cup or of the likes using the tip of a clean blade. Using a sterile syringe full of sterile water, shoot some water into the shot glass. Suck up the spores. You want to empty the whole syringe into the shot glass and suck the water back up trying to get it all back in. It's best done in 'one fell swoop'. It takes some practice to get the hand of it. If print is on foil, glass slide, or a petri dish you can shoot some of the fluid from the syringe back on to the print and into the shot glass, to get to the last of the spores. Once you're happy with the amount of spores you've captured in the syringe, you can empty it back into the shot glass, and then suck the multispore (MS) solution back into the syringe, do this a few times. 2 or 3 times will suffice. This helps to separate the spores as they love to clump together. You now have a multispore syringe Just keep in mind that MS syringes usually do carry a few contaminants with them.

  13. So I was lucky enough to sprout one of these bad boys, this is my 1st albino loph seedling after 15 years of growing them so not only am I excited but I'm thinking it's also about damn time! And in celebration of that I thought I would share some pics of the albino menchaca specimen with you all. It has been grafted onto peres. I'll post some updates from time to time. I dont mind if it turns variegate just as long as it doesn't revert back to green haha fingers crossed. Cheers QR
