Trichocereus peruvianus "Serra Blue" x Trichocereus pachanoi OST 90641


More grafts done today. I try to make these little showings a bit informative so others can pick things up about grafting and I also come back and show in real time how these grafts look from one month to the next. This again provides more learning opportunities for those that want to learn how to graft. The more exposure to grafting pictures and techniques the easier it becomes to spot when something is amiss. 


Without further ado, my little baby grafts done today. Labels made SerraBlue_x_OST_90641_587.thumb.jpg.ff9f8b440aa68531261ee0b8956f98ea.jpg5a9de4609ec07_SerraBluexOST9064188.thumb.jpg.8c06a63598e99a7d8347580ee564b323.jpg If you've been following me... you should know how this is done by now and what comes next. So, I will instead give you a few pictures to focus on that will help with alignment of seedlings of your scion on your stock cacti. 5a9de4923099b_SerraBluexOST90641589.thumb.jpg.6ab9491c7bd8016420bafc7b3d39c76f.jpg5a9de49bbbca1_SerraBluexOST906413590.thumb.jpg.7c059720e300d6b8260d9091c25963fb.jpg5a9de49fab565_SerraBluexOST90641pachanoi3592.thumb.jpg.393364dbd0a08aecdeb089def7a1d99c.jpg5a9de4a6ec66b_SerraBluexOST90641pachanoi3593.thumb.jpg.e88b894442115d9410e4951f6df0e4d1.jpg  At the risk of sounding like a broken record, stretched out parafilm will keep your graft, regardless of size, from drying out and this helps prevent lifting up of the edges of your graft that you often see when humidity is low. Larger grafts may benefit from the addition of a bit of self adhesive coban to further snug down your graft.


I will come back to post pictures ever so often to show how these are progressing. As always, I welcome others to post pictures of their own specimens from this cross here so I can see what I may end up with many months down the road. Suffice it to say, I am excited to see these babies mature.
