San Pedro Pics + Question
    #1647178 - 06/20/03 05:08 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Bought this cutting yesterday.





My question :
Whats the best method for growing?
Planting the whole cutting in a pot and give it time to root.
Or slicing it into smaller cuttings and wait for puppies?

I thought that the pups just come on their own , why would you cut that up?


I am not expert on cacti though, but I have seen cactus like that with pups

If the cut is fresh then let it dry for about a week to form a callus.
Then plant the cactus in a pot (not too big) about 3 inches deep in dry cactus soil so that it supports itself and leave undisturbed for about 10 days.
After about 10 days you can give it its first watering.
If you intend to cut the cactus in two before growing it then the part without the growing tip will pup simply because the growing tip has been lost. The part of the cactus with the growing tip will grow in the normal fashion.
Don't make the cuttings less than six inches. Larger cuttings are more reliable and grow away faster than smaller ones.

As for harvesting........once your cactus has reached a decent size. Make two cuts about 1/3 and 2/3 of the way up the cactus. At an angle so rainwater does not collect on the tip. The stump can be left in the pot to regrow (it will throw out pups). The top section can be rerooted as described above and the middle section is for you to do with as you will. You need about a foot of San Pedro for an experience.
With this method you increase your stock as well as enjoying the cactus.

I hope this helps.

Regards
chrisesq

I agree with Chrisesq.
Here's some instruction taken from Icaro of shamanshop.net:

As part of the natural healing process, cacti produce a light film or mold. In order to be ready for planting, the ends have to heal to a hard, light brown/light black scab.

First move it to the open air but out of direct sunlight. Second, let it heal for 1 more week. The color draining from the top is lack of chlorophyll - it trying to grow already.

I have tried all kinds of potting mixes and have found that regular cheap potting soil works great for these plants. A 12 inch cutting does great in a 8 to 12 inch pot. I sink about 1/3 of the plant in the soil, with the nettles sticking up.

I water my plants as soon as I plant them, but thereafter, only when the soil is completely dry - which can be every other day in some hotter climates. I don't water in the winter at all. And in the fall only as needed if we are having some hot spells.

As for nutrition I use fish emulsion solution once in the spring, once in the mid summer, and once at the end of summer. I use one cap-full per gallon.

These are particularly fast-growing cacti. The flowers can reach 12 inches in diameter, and bloom at night or early dawn.

More in-depth info can be found at: http://www.shamanshop.net/icaro.htm
including how to prepare. erowid is also a great source...
Good lookin' plants guy!

The end was hard but white, not brown/light black.
It also had already developped some roots at the base so i think it was the right time for planting. I hope :smile:
I pt about 3 inches of the San Pedro into the soil, its stable but i shouldnt push it hard for making it fall.

Btw, high quality pic for those intrested.

(still dont know how to thumbnail it, help is welcome :smile:)
