roasted my torch/terschekii outdoors, HELP!
    #2089563 - 11/10/03 03:53 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

high fellows!
well, making more room for the cactus i keep inside (glass tiles) on my cactus spot, i tried to move the more cacti i could outside so i happily put my terschekii and my torch on the spots that get sun from the sunrise to around 2-3 pm.
results: the sun is kicking in already (he always does it), the terschekii has taken more days (cloudy days) to get hurt and got it's top dried up.
the torches side got shriveled and yellowed, for a one-day exposure. i've brought it in already. it's top is not damaged, its side has the most critical damage so at least i can take a top cutting from this one.
my question is: what can i do for my torch to try to bring it back to health?
i am wary of watering it...

The torch is probably be fine just make sure it gets used to the strong sun gradually, it is never good to change lightning too much,
put it semi shaded and let it get more and more direct sunlight every 3rd or 4th day...then it would be fine in a a cupple of weeks.
The terschekii is harder though..i leave it up to someone more experienced to tell you what to do..

peace and good luck..

thanks for the hint, i've given a LITTLE water to the torch, it doesn't looks really bad, the worse that can happen is the terschekii lose it's growth point and starts to pup... not bad.
lesson learnt: trichs are not as resistent to light and heat as cereus or pilosocereus (some ornamentals i have)...
i hope the glaucus i planted outside on soil don't melt in the summer...

Was this the first time it was placed in direct sunlight?
It often just takes a while for it getting used to the new light conditions.

peace...

dude, they were already taking a lot of DIRECT sun in the glass roofed room!
i made it the most gradual possible! it would work for a pilosocereus or most native ones. the trichs seem more resilient in the cold end of the temps...
which is ok because sometimes the winter still kicks.
actually, my t. spachianus 'family' and my t. grandiflorus are UNDER FULL ROASTING SUN (they seem to like it) with no problems! i guess the pachanoi/peruvianus species are not used to the extreme temp swing the spachianus take easily...
