Humidity for grafting cacti?
    #1045034 - 11/12/02 12:17 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Hey there people,
Soon I am going to be grafting a nice small button cactus onto the tip of a 10cm tall Trichocereus Pachanoi (San Pedro). Just a few questions before preform the surgery....
Firstly, in the first days / weeks after I join the two parts, is it best to have a high, medium or low humidity? The guy who is giving me the button suggested a high humidity, but he has never done a graft before. I thought I should ask you guys as to what to do about that.
Also, how much light should I expose them to in the first weeks? (I am doing two grafts, one of the button, and another of the upside down root stock)...
One more question...should I continue watering once a week as usual, or cut back for a while after I have done the grafts?
Thanks a lot for any input, also any other advice on grafting would be good, from someone who has done it before :smile:

High Humidity is almost always death for a cactus. Cacti are cam plants. They like high humidity but only relative humidity within their cell structures under the skin.

Cut back on the watering only for a little bit. In my experience I've watered only every other time on my watering schedule and seemed to find no problem. Light requirements are still the same in my experiences, you want the parts of the T. Pach that are exposed and not covered by the graft to dry, if they don't get light it won't facilitate the drying process.
