lophophora williamsii
    #1344831 - 03/01/03 12:34 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)



im not sure exactly how old it is.. im assuming around 4 or 5 years.
im just curious.. am i going to have to adjust the photoperiod in order for it to bloom? or will it just do so when its ready? im a little worried about this one in particular, my baby lophos seem to be growing noticably faster.. i would have thought, the bigger they are, the faster theyd grow..? I just transplanted this one into a deeper pot, in hopes that would help a little. i guess ill have to wait and see. any thoughts?

Try a potting mix that has a higher ratio of sand. That stuff looks it holds the water pretty good, it might get root/stem rot from fungi.
What is the diameter?

To me it looks older than 5 years.

Where did you get it? did you start from seed? Is it grafted?

well younger ones do grow a bit quicker than older so it may just be maturing.As to flowering mine will on a windowsill or under 24 hour light.It should hopefully flower in the next year or three.

Hola. Now when I look at that picture It appears that it must be a cutting which was rooted. For AFOAF's Lophs which were grown from seeds appear much taller yet they are only one year old. Now the base and mid portion closer to the root take on a reddish pink color. My question is does this portion get burried? And only the green top stick out the soil? Is this proper planting? Or does AFOAF just have a different specimen at a different growth point? Make any sense?

When they're in their first year from germination they grow like torches almost, until around the first year they fatten out. The reddish part may indicate too much sun. Those little guy's can't really take a direct blast like that, atleast not yet.

At one year lophs grown from seed are typically about the diameter of a pencil eraser. As far as size at one year, AFOAF in a country other than the USA, has some that are as short as 1/2" to as tall as 1 1/2" (and they are all said to be about one year old)

hello again :smile:
you guys are right about the soil.. it is actually a 50/50 mix of cactus soil, and regular potting soil.. i guess ill be off to the store soon to pick up another bag of cactus soil :smile:

im not entirely sure if im allowed to post sources here??  i ordered the older lopho from a very reliable online vendor..and was told all their lophos were grown from seed.  how can you tell if the cactus is a cutting? 

do young lophos really grow 'up' before they flatten out??  i got my young ones at around 6 months old, and they were very short and round...  i posted some fairly rescent pics of them  Here. ... i think theyre about a year old.  they do infact look a bit healthier than the larger one. must be the soil.. =/

thanks for the input everyone :smile:

they elongate at the very start of growth but that doesnt last long.You have a cacti started from seed imo.When did you pot it up as 50/50 isnt such a bad thing just dont let it sit in damp compost to oftern.i.e let it dry out between waterings espeicaly in the winter.If its been in the pot for a bit it may do more harm than good to repot it imo but if its only been in there about a month or less id repot ing just cacti compost.Id also put a layer of grit or gravel onto the surface as i do this with all mine.Not sure if it helps in anyway but its closer to it natural enviroment and looks nice :smile:
Good luck with her :smile: shes a healthy looking filly.


edit:just went to that link and see you have a gravel mulch :smile: dont forget to let them get a bit dry between waterings imo
