Gr0's cacti garden
    #3316011 - 11/03/04 07:16 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hey guys i finally decided to post some pics of my cacti collection. So far i have 4 pedros with a total of 6 pups, 5 peruvian torches seedlings 2 months old, 22 pedro seedlings about 3 months old, and 8 Pereskiopsis plants. I have two of the Pereskiopsis grafted one with a pedro pup and one a willi. I just grated them 6 and 3 days ago and ther looking real good. The willi is already showing increased growth after 3 days in partial light.





willi on the left pedro on the right

That is a very nice garden you have there Gr0wer :thumbup:

I hope to start my own cactus garden relatively soon (within 2 months I should have some pictures up - all I need is a digital camera and some cacti :crazy2: so it might take more than 2)

Edit: In the third picture, what is in the container with the green crusty substance in it :confused:?

Just out of curiosity, what percentage of your torch and pedro seeds germinated?

I had a real good pedro germ rate of about 50-60 but the torches was real bad only like 10-20. That green stuff is sand and i just ferted last watering so alge grew, those are the torch seedlings in that pot. The other 2 pots are all pedros.

Looking good, Grower. Shows what you can do with a small amount of space. Some day you'll have a huge garden.

Yea they dont find much smaller then a big steel pipe. About the plants, I water em every day with shultz 10-10-10 ferts at 1 and 1 tsp per gal and foliar feed. The pedros only get a mix of 2-7-7 cactus ferts. I also keep the lights 1/2" from the tops at all times.

Stonehenge, yea its small now but soon i hope to have half the table full once i get my 400w MH and set up my hydro system.

And if anyone noticed those small groth tips in hte pot with the other rooting cutting there an experiment. There the tips from the two grafts i made and im trying to root them only being about 1/2". Theres only 4-6 nodes in the soil. I hate to throw out growth tips because they take a good 2 weeks to grow. So far its only been 3 and 6 days with no roots and they normally throw out roots in 4-7 days but im sure the smaller tips will take longer if at all. Im hoping for the best.

yea its the storage side of my basment, its just piles of crap that we never use ie. the POS metal detector. The other side is a shop and much nicer. Ill be moving the garden to a table over there soon and ill have much more space to work with. The HBW is right at the end of the cactus setup. If you look to the left you can see the lights down.

Hopefully i'll update this thread with new pics every 2-4 weeks so you can see how fast they actually grow. I'll also have a how too pictorial as i set up the MH and make and set up the hydro system. I'll be making a aerospring style system, i like the design because I can play with the watering timing to change root growth and i can easily expand the system. http://www.overgrow.com/growfaq/1219

you can achieve amazing growth with aeroponic or aeroganic (same but w/ organic ferts) systems greater than any other system but they are really prone to root disease and once you get it for some reason it keeps coming back no matter the steps taken to eliminate it (i.e. complete sterlization of greenhouse and all equip. used, or in you case the basement) my school actually has a whole team of grad students trying to find a reliable and pratical way to stop this as they lost massive amounts of strawberrys grow aeroganically. if they happen upon sucess i'll let you know :smirk: :stoned:

Well im hoping for no problems.  :crazy: A bit of peroxide on a regular basis should keep most problems to a minimal and increase RO in the water.

I lost my peyote :frown: It started to swell up and i was introducing it slowly to thefloros then it turned to mush. The pedro graft is doing well though. Im going to graft a torch or two then propigate out my pereskiopsis for a while and hold off on the grafting. Then come spring i should have 50+ rootstocks and buy willi, diffusa, fricii and bridgesii seeds.

I found out how.
This is new to me. I know about hydro tho. (I grow hydro veggies) And have some tomato, greanbeans, pepper, catnip(for the cats), and trying hydro vadalia onions.
So I added this puppy to see how it will do.
The bottom of the cacti is 1 inch above the highest level the water gets. The roots of the cacti stretch all the way down into the bottom of the plastic container, in the water. Is it better to have the bottom of the cacti touch the water, or have just the roots touch the water? This cacti was purchased from BBB and has alot of skin damage.

Looks good from here! Theres no puropse at having it flood the stump as the roots are what absorb the water+nutes. Keeping the callused base dry can also make it throw out more roots. By having it flood the base its more likley to rot, so i think its perfect as is. How long have you had it in that system? And this is under a HPS?

Thanks!

Those 2 micro clones finally rooted! There under partial light now.

Yesterday I chopped the main shoot of the pereskiopsis on the right of the first pic into 2 2" cuttings.

Also i found a small crappy branch of Pereskiopsis with one leaf at the top and 4 stripped nodes in a shady section with 2 shriveled up roots and a sickly looking leaf. This was the only non rotted section from a plant i threw out and i never got to planting it, thinking it wouldnt root. I planted this a few days ago and today i found a healty 1/2" root coming out! Im going to start microcloning these more often, they seem to respond well.
