Peyote, Pedro, and Pereskiopsis
    #2480470 - 03/29/04 05:27 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Lately I've been reading about and purchasing cacti.
I have a lot of questions though, and appreciate any help/advice i can get  :thumbup:

First here is the Pedro i plan to graft to...

Two of them are lookin real light colored on top, is this normal?
They are 1in-1.5in in diameter
The Peyote i want to graft on it are all 3/4in in diameter.  Here is a shittie picture of my peyote.

Are these sizes good for grafting?
Should take them out of the pots and do the graft while there bare root?

I also got this pathetic looking pereskiopsios from mesa garden.

They were supposed to send 3, but i only got one.... Also all the pictures of it I've seen in the past have leaves, but this one is just a stick...
Of course the peyote i have is too big to graft on pereskiopsis, i need seedlings...How long do peyote and pedro seeds last?  Can i keep them a few years before germination?

And my final question(s) is how the heck do i take care of these things?  :crazy2:  There gonna be indoors all year long.  When should i water them?  When the soil is dry? (seems like after 3 days the soil drys...)  Everywhere i read says only to water them "more" in the summer and "less" in the winter.  Does the pereskiopsis need more water than the pedro and peyote?

I also have a non-psychedilic cactus that is turning yellow.  It looks like coral (Euphorbia Flanaganii Cristata) but some of the "leaves" are turning yellow.  Is this something i did and is it something i can fix?  Does it need fertilizer or more/less light/water?

Thx for your help!

Your pereskiopsis is fine. It will grow leaves with the new growth. Also, I would recommend you get those cactus outside. They need a lot of light to stay healthy. That or get ahold of a beefy grow light. :smile: Good luck.

I wouldn't graft the peyote yet, especially the one that looks like it has two legs. Or graft one, and plant the others in a long rectangular clay pot. Let them grow for a year or two, and if you ever want to graft another one, just cut the button off slightly above soil level. Good luck in whatever you decide to do!

New growth at the tips of clumnar cacti is usually a lighter green. A Good sunny place will make them darker and fatter.

You're Perekiopsis looks like most cuttings people get in the mail. Plant it and water it in. Give it time to grow.

Your peyote look fine and are suitable now for grafting onto a columnar cactus root stock, but not your perekiopsis. You can graft both the button and the root (upside down) onto two separate cacti or you could replant the root and allow the woudn to heal for multiple buttons. Your choice.

For watering your cacti more in the summer and less in the winter is good. When you water them give them a good soaking and allow the soil to dry completely and stay that way for a few days. You can check the moisture level with a meter that you can stick in the soil or probe into it with a wood dowel and see.
