A beginner's first cultivation of cacti
SwedishPsychonaut posted a topic in Cacti & SucculentsHello people of The Corroboree! I want to start by thanking the administrators for giving me access to this lovely forum. I have been searching for a specific thread for beginner questions but I have not found one, feel free to move this post if you want. I am a 26 year old student living in the cold north of Sweden that recently decided to try out cacti cultivation. English is not my first language, so I apologize in advance for grammatical errors. In order to start my cacti cultivation I started searching the internet and found some helpful guides and tips. I had trouble finding a forum to discuss this kind of cacti cultivation, which is why I am posting here (feeling hopeful). I found a desert plant company in Sweden which I contacted and purchased 20 seeds of Lophophora williamsii ("Peyote"), Trichocereus pachanoi ("San Pedro") and Trichocereus peruvianus ("Peruvian Torch"). I went and purchased cacti soil, a small greenhouse and a combined thermometer and hygrometer. As I am writing this, I put the seeds into the soil 36 days ago. Below you can see a few pictures of how the cacti are looking right now: The Greenhouse Pots Peyote. Also peyote. The only San Pedro The only Peruvian torch So, after 36 days, the 20 seeds of peyote resulted in 6 small cactuses, the 20 seeds of san pedro resulted in 1 small cactus and the 20 seeds of peruvian torch resulted in 1 small cactus. I feel like its a pretty bad outcome, but this is my first time trying this. At this point, I want to try and make the ones that made it grow large! As a complete beginner I would like to ask some questions about my cultivation: 1. So far I have watered the pots and let new air into the greenhouse daily. I have not yet put any lights into the greenhouse, because the guide I am reading suggests lights first when the little lives look like small cacti. I live in Sweden, which at this time of year has very few hours of sun, so the only light the cacti are getting at the moment is from the lamp in my ceiling. Do you think that its time to install some lights? 2. The seeds that has not produced a small cacti yet, do you think there is still a chance that they will pop up? I would also appreciate if you would have any general tips on how to get my cultivation to go further! Thanks very much in advance for answers! Stay humle!

How resilient are young lophs?
Slocombe posted a topic in Cacti & SucculentsNoob here. I think I have given my tiny (roughly) 8 week-old lophs sunburn. I have had them on my (partially) shaded window sill for most of the past 8 weeks no problem. I've been misting them every so often and when I did so today they are a redish/brown colour. I think it’s the high temperatures and the high UV rating that we’ve had over the past week or so that has gotten to them. I have since moved them further indoors underneath my frosted skylight and given them a drink of water. My question is, how resistant to this sort of thing are they and what can I do to help them recover (other than moving them further indoors)? I'd also appreciate any growing tips you have for young cactus seedlings since this is my "first time".
how big should a loph be in diameter before it is at a good size to be grafted?
newageshaman posted a topic in Cacti & SucculentsJust wondeing about what size a loph should be before you can graft it relatively easy to a trich? i have just bought one that has arrived and the main pup is 2cm in diameter and the other pups are about 1 cm or smaller and i was thinking of grafting some of the littler pups to my trichs? or should i let them grow a bit bigger before attempting to graft? any feedback would be greatly appreciated

Trichocereus bridgesii, Ariocarpus fissuratus and Peyote- impressions
mindperformer posted a topic in Cacti & Succulentslikely Trichocereus cuzcoensis KK242 (previously named as Trichocereus bridgesii): Ariocarpus fissuratus: Lophophora williamsii:
drumthumper001 posted a topic in Cacti & SucculentsHey guys I just needed some help with my Lophophora. I kind of thought that his skin condition was due to sunburn so decided to move him out of direct sunlight but to no avail, it seems to be getting worse with a lot of dry patchiness. He has been getting the correct amount of water I believe. Could someone give me a hand?? Cheers in advance.
