Lophophora tender care
    #1263799 - 01/31/03 01:05 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I have a quick question. I see everyones' posts of young lophs, and they appear slender and very upright. As I see pictures of older lophs they seem very round and appear to merely break the surface of their environment. Do they bulk up and spread out like a balloon? Or does the long slender body which forms while young act as an extension of the tap root, and become covered with the various rocks you guys like to collage them in? Because the young ones appear to be similar on the top, but they have an extremely long body down to the root. Any experienced response would be appreciated. Hasta.

Some of my peyote-seedlings are also long and thin in the beginning,but than  the upper part becomes wider after the first year. Normally I transplant my seedlings after the first year and so I place the lower, thin part of the seedling deeper in the ground. But I make sure that the upper layer of that ground doesn't contain any soil or peat or something, only very small stones (like the ones they sell for the bottom of an aquarium). This way the none-root-part of the cactus can't stay wet for a longer period, which prevents rotting. The real root does come in contact with soil. Another year later the peyotes look a lot more normal, and they are just round with a very thick root under it.
Anyway, to answer your question: Even though I treat the thin part a bit like a root, I don't think it eventually becomes part of the root. I wish I could explain myself better with some pics (also because my english isn't really good). But to really understand it, you should try to grow some yourself. It's easy!

BTW, welcome to the Shroomery. :wink:
