san pedro questions
    #2549103 - 04/11/04 08:25 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

lucky enough to aquire this pedro. a few concerns though - the holes in the sides. not sure if from a bug or what, but should these pepper looking holes be bored out? or do they pose no threat.






also theres black at the top as shown here. concern?



peace

I'd give it lots of diffused sunlight (no water) and see if the rot keeps growing. If it does, you could try cutting the tip... but I dunno about boaring out those holes in the side, you're likely to lose the whole cactus if the rot IS that deep. If the holes continue growing, I'd consider lopping it off above the rot and hoping for the best.

But frankly just make sure the rot isn't growing. Usually some dry sunlight to control the rot, and they'll do fine.

badly fucked.. hmm.. thats not good at all.
heres another shot of the tip as requested.



the new growth was heavily damaged in transit, and was removed. the black at the tip , seems to "chip" off easily.

also the holes of "rot" seem very dry, and do not seem to be spreading. this is roughly a 3 foot section, -- so it seems it would be best to cut out the section with the holes in it?

peace

If I were you, I would get a very sharp knife (razor, pen knife would work well) and peel off the black looking stuff on the tip. After you remove all the black stuff, rinse it under some water and let it callous over. I don't know about the holes, but I'd leave them alone unless it looks like they start to rot or anything.

Some of my Pedro tips got frozen. The tips turned black, calloused themselves off, then pupped out at the healed spot.This was over a couple months with dry weather.

I have similar but smaller spots going on my pedro. i think it was from water settling on the body and clogging pores.
anyone have a remedy for getting rid of them? or maybe stopping them from growing? I have picked them off, but they keep coming back. any help would be appreciated.

Pedro are very resiliant, keep an eye on it and make sure the necrotic areas don't spread, but you should be fine. :laugh:

Trichocereus grow through almost all problems especially if they are in decent soil with a good pH, but if you have tissue that is soft or spongy and is spreading then you have rot which needs to be completely cut out and the area dusted with sulfur. Hope that helps.
