Lophophora fricii done by @Inyan parafilm tent method

Looking good Gimli. My favorite way to graft small seedling... especially so if one is making a small army of grafts at the same time is with that parafilm method. Yours is looking good.

Coromandel Cacti x Scop from @Padonkluft across the pond

 

 

Nice! Coromandel Cacti is a nursery over here with a number of Trich clones used in crosses like peru, cuzco, pach etc so you might want to check what the mother plant was

Lucky! That is a very glaucous Peru.
Here is a slightly dehydrated cut

Tried grafting some new things, I'll be interested to see how they go.

I grafted the base too then cored out the remaining peres tissue after unwrapping.  Its on a pretty small offcut without roots so see if it dehydrates or kicks on.  Nothing to lose was just banging together leftovers.

Did some lophs too.  Huizache.

...and one of those yellow jobbers that they flog at mitre10.  You know the ones the kids make you buy as part of an unwritten agreement to actually get out of the car and come in.

Hi Humboldt,

Those loph grafts look great, and you have some chunky stock!

I don't mean to offend, but your pere appears less than favourable (Losing leaves / few leaves), why didn't you wait for it to grow more leaves? or do you think leaves / no leaves the difference is negligible?

 

Thank you :)

Hi Mcgrath, these were the best sticks i had too. No stress my ego can survive my shitty peres.  Couple of thoughts. 

I do find peres hard to grow over the Tas winter but ive also given little attention to them too.  Had been growing in pots sitting in sphagnum moss.

From my limited xp it seems spring is a good time to graft for me.  

I pull off quite a few leaves too below the graft to make life easier. 

 

In answer to your question I'm not sure leaves are all that...re peres.  But as a novice im not solid on any assumptions, maybe a wiser head might chime in. 

 I choose for woodyness (lack of) and the diameter that will suit my scion.  To give you some idea the Lophs and the Rebutia are all degrafts from 1yo grafts on peres (shouldda seen them mate).  They seemed to grow at a good enough rate they got to about 4cm across in a year with little foliage but maybe im missing out on boomtown.

 

Im having fun as Ive grown a few hundred grusonii and was curious to experiment with if i can speed up growth and degraft to root and what are the best times and methods for this. For example how much stock tissue does the scion take on? Will this effect the ball shape i want if i have to take too much (i doubt this)? Is trich or opuntia better?  Trich tissue seems to not invade the scion as much in my observations. Having done lophs it seems to me you have to cut out a fair bit, they're pretty soft eh.  This was a 1st experiment into that. Of course first of all wanted to see if they'd take.  Once ive experimented I'll do a bulk lot.  I took a sneaky peak at one today.  Check this little fellow.  Atm they all showing signs of punching into the parafilm and its been a week.  Good signs.

Heres a 1yo loph with just 2 leaves.  The peres is getting woody now but the scion is firm and fruity.

The bottom section of the Rebutia (that i cut stock tissue out of) i let heal for a few days then redressed (without making a tight seal) the cut to keep moisture in.  It was an experiment into how can i degraft the above Loph and keep in as much of 1 piece as i can.  Ie. can i minimize moisture reduction and risk of rot?
