Good work man. Did you use some kind of plastic bag as a humidity dome? How many days did u leave it in for, and what temps was it outside? Looks like ur using artificial lights?

I've only succeeded in about 2-3 loph grafts out of about 20 or so attempts. Main problem being shrivelling of the scion from not enough humidity usually, or otherwise boiling of the scion due to bits of sunlight escaping through my shed and temps rising to 35 degrees plus :(

You should always bring your new graft inside for a few days atleast, once the scion has properly fused to the stock, then it is OK to introduce back into it's growing area, I would't suggest full sun straight away either. Are you grafting your scion on to an actively growing part of the stock?

Once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy.

Nice fat pedro you have there by the way bob-bob :wink:

Thanks SaBReT00tH, it is currently sitting inside a bucket with some glad wrap over the top.

I mist the sides of the bucket once a day, not directly on the graft. Today is its third day, the photo

was taken yesterday. Its left outside no artificial lights and its been about 28 degrees at its hottest

with no direct light as it is to cloudy.

Man thats gotta hurt, thats a lot of lophs to lose. Maybe bring them inside for the first few days. Surely

after one cactus has had its ass cut off and the other its head, a few days of lack of light couldnt hurt :P

and keep up the humidity.. :)

i got periskiopsis grafts happening and i put them in a tuppaware wiht a thin layer of water at the bottom then a 2 litre softe drink bottle with the bottom cut off over the top.

keeps it nice and humid. then as you want to decrease the humidity to get it ready to go outside you can take the cap off the bottle or drain the water out of the tuppaware before taking the bottle off completely.

all of this is kept inside with a fluro light on it by the way.

Nice pics bob-bob.

Bet you can't wait to graft the seedlings from the resulting fruit.

8 months full circle is much better then 5 years or so.

Thanks for the pics
