Here are some updated pics of some grafts, got plenty more todo.
Here is my largest graft that I can enter in the comp.
Here is a 0.8cm graft about to flower!!! unfortunatly it was sown before the comp starts.
This is a picture of my setup, the shelves are 150cmx60cmx180cm and there are 5 shelves which equals 4 growing shelves
The bottom two shelves are for peres (one isnt uncovered in the pic), they fit 6 trays and a tray holds 48 peres therefore 288 peres per shelf :D The top two shelves are for seedlings, as you can see I have not planted many yet as Im still running test batches to see if its ok to grow under. They are covered with panda film to reflect the light but this also raises the temp to over 40 celcius. The peres are under 4x 36 watt cool white and the lophs under 2.
These are my peres for grafting onto, ones in middle are 30cm+.
This is my humidity chamber where I keep the grafts for upto a week after grafting.
And these are my stock peres plants.
This category is where all my pictures of other plants I grow or encounter on my travels will be posted.......
The Pereskiopsis grafting competition is being held over at Ethnobotany Australia and anyone is welcome to enter. I figured this feature would be a great way of keeping track of how the grafts are doing so enjoy.....
