Pereskiopsis Question
    #3376303 - 11/17/04 10:07 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I have Pereskiopsis cuttings which I attained from MesaGarden and have rooted and grown for a while. I have several cuttings which have rooted and I've established quite a collection. Mine look different then all of yours I see on here. Mine aren't as glossy looking, your leaves look so waxy and darker then mine. My plant looks very similar, but not as dark, and the leaves are skinnier and not waxy. Is this a different kind of Pereskiopsis? I've tried grafting San Pedro on it with no luck. I've failed twice. Any suggestions are awesome. Thanks.

well if u got it from mesa then it should be good.. If ur looking at una's picks hten dont try and compete with him.. Mine also have skinny leaves.. But their should be no reason that grafting shouldnt work.. try a higher humidity environment..

I have Pereskiopsis from 2 different sources and depending on light/nutrients they look different. They grow best in full sun with watering every day and putting the ferts to them.

Regarding grafting T. Pachanoi to Pereskiopsis, you have to be very careful with the grafting. My success rate with columnar cactus on to Pereskiopsis is terrible. I attribute this to using seedlings over 1 month old. I have real good luck with Lopho sp. on Pereskiopsis.

I also grafted 3 Aztekium R. to Pereskiopsis, and so far only 1 appears to have survived. Nothing like grafting a needle head onto a needle head.

I noticed the same thing, unas are nice and crisp and shiny looking mine are more matte and you can see the cells. However after some time stuck up between floro tubes and being foliar fed and feed full 10-10-10 ferts one took on a nice shiny finish with red around the tips at the top. I tried to graft a good 6 times and i still havet had one hold, i used 2 month old seedings though. I just thinks its that practice makes perfect. You need to learn to make perfect straight cuts without bruising the seedling. The humidity should be %90-100.

here you can see the cool redness and glossy leaves. I think its just from being in a high light and nutrient environment. I always keep the tops between my floro tubes for the most intense and surround lighting possible on the tip.

Always use a dome over your plant for a while when you do a graft. At least until you are sure it's taken. Low humidity will cause it to fail many times.

“A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship.” (attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville political philosopher Circa 1835)
