i have been paying close attention to peoples lophs to see if mine needs to be deeper in the soil, but i could never get the correct angle. judging by yours mine should be okay hopefully.




That can depend on the mix, and personal preference/aesthetics.
For safe practice, keep soil away from the main body, and where it meets the roots, and top off with a gravel collar to finish.




thats exactly what i did :laugh: good to hear that was correct, thanks <3

Just did my first alberto-vojtechii graft last night


And this L. Difussa is already having a pup at just 3 months! I'm sure it could be bigger if it had a bigger root-stock, but it's not doing too bad!

Hi everybody, I'm expanding into cacti and it's exciting learning so many new things about these plants I didn't know before. I'm having a real hard time getting my hands on some of the soil amendments (chip limestone being the hardest). I live in remote northern california forest land, so I typically have to order specialized items off the web. Any recommendations on where to scrounge this stuff up would really be appreciated!

If you go to home Depot or a department store go to the concrete and sand area. Usually find bags of limestone screenings for cheep. Tbh promix cacti soil with limestone screenings would work just fine.

From what I understand, LW decipiens is actually fricii - even if it is some variety of it making it a little less clear. Though it actually explains a lot of things that would otherwise not make sense.
I have some too, one grafted flowering plant being the notable one.

Hey does anyone have experience with cresting as a result of cramped space and the squeezing pressure it has as consequence? Have wondered about emulating a situation like that.. but i seem to have one now on a clusterpupping fricii.

Cresting from this cause, or any physical cause perhaps such as insect damage as well.. is the most likely to revert, is it not? And immediate reversion could i think also explain dichotomous growth? Last time it happened also on a Loph that pupped everywhere because of an insect damaged apex, it resulted in basically a trichotomous head.

too bad i cant even find a digital version of the book Teratopia..

Some of you prob already know this but just a random tip of something to look into (i will be trying it myself too) is that rooting powder can be used on grafts to promote the process and get better results.

https://www.ajol.info/index.php/ajb/article/view/101990/92036

Note this is for Trichocereus but I posted here because the scion is often Loph at least a favorite of mine to graft... you may wanna lowball this dosage so as not to get a counterproductive effect.
Bottomline, the best dosage in the study was 100 mg/L IBA and applied a few more times with 9 days waiting in between each application.

Gotta check tho - a concentration should also come with an amount to make sense...

It doesnt say... is it me or is it very strange that nothing is detailed about this "auxin treatment", if its like an ointment then i'd at least like some elucidation on why the amount of ointment isnt important.

Well, I think an update is required as of now.
First pic is the situation as the end of last month. I was still dealing with molds.

As today, thanks to all the great info you provided, molds seem to be under control, mainly h2o2 when things got too bad and regular oil mixed with my misting water. but one of the little lophs is not looking that healthy. Any tips?

If one had happened to get a plant similar to this species, and it had been unpotted and the roots pruned down to the main tap root, and it looked like those cuts had callused over, but you are not really sure how long ago it had been pruned, how long would you wait to repot it?

Hey all got a question...
These are both L. williamsii var Huizache ~ planted from seem at the exact same time in 2014.

Any idea why that one is growing so tall and not growing very much laterally?
It’s the only Loph I’ve got that’s got this growing structure..

Should I bury it deeper?

Is there anything you can do to encourage Loph’s to pup out?


In other news I just made another order for Loph seeds.
L. williamsii x 100 seeds
L. williamsii var. Caespitosa x 20 seeds
L. williamsii var. Huizache  -  I really like this one it’s a fast grower and very tolerant of my northern climate.
L. williamsii var. Big Bend  - I’ve read this is the most northern found variety so I’m hoping it’s even more cold tolerant than the Huizache have proven to be.


I’m also curious if you guys can shed some light on Loph seed prices?
I buy from a place that sells 10 seeds of most Loph species for between $7-$10. But there are 3 varieties that are double that, they sell for $20/10 seeds. I guess I’m wondering what makes them so pricey and if there’s anything special about them...

Here’s the pricey strains in question:
- L.Williamsii var. Weisse Bluete
- L.Williamsii var. Grau-Bleu
- L.Williamsii var. El Milagro de Guadelupe  (These seeds are sold out so it must have been popular/desirable, even for the price @ $20 x 10 seeds).
- L.Williamsii var. Saltillo-Monclova Km39 - First of all what does the “Km39” represent/distinguish????    (Also, These seeds are sold out also so it must have been popular/desirable, even for the price @ $22).
- L.Williamsii var. decipiens  (Also sold out. Is this variety active?    (Prices were insane @ $25 x 10 seeds.

A couple of them are descriptions of the color in German, white-blue and gray-blue I think.

My understanding is that L. williamsii var. decipiens is williamsii that looks deceptively like L. fricii (deeper pink flowers and a different skin tone). Think it should be active like any williamsii.

My plan is to order a few different species/varieties once a month until I’ve got all the Loph’s I can get.
