New cacti, and some not so new
    #2976001 - 08/07/04 06:32 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

got a couple new ones today to add some variety to the collection :wink:


Ariocarpus fissuratus, haven't potted it yet, need to mix up some more soil...


Astrophytum asterias

the others:

Next season I'll cut the branches off and repot the grafts separately, I think some new roots would do them good


a pup! :grin:

Nice collection. That astrophytum fooled me for a second, I'd never seen one perfectly round before.

I dunno, I'll probably go ahead and graft it if I can find a nice stock plant for it.

think the roots will sprout some new growth if I plant them after/if I graft the top?

Or you could do an upside down graft with the bottom portion like i did with this Lophphora lutea. This is an old pic but the bottom portion has sprouted 5 new pups :laugh:

yeah, I'm pretty impressed with the plants I got, nice color, clean, no blemishes. got em from www.plant-planet.net for $5 each, pretty good deal.

nice Una! I might give that a try, I don't know if I'll be able to keep any of the green tissue on the root part though, would it still work?

Una what inspired you to do the upside down graft? Does it put out more pups then right side up? Is that peyote on the roght a control of sorts?

LOL i didnt realize what youd did there. So you put the top on one and the bottom on the other. Cool idea! Couldnt you also slice it into 3-4 slices and graft them then wait for pups, much like your other graft with just a sliver of scion.
