Sucessful Grafts
    #3436368 - 12/02/04 09:59 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Here are some grafts I have done and thought I'd share them.


Here is a Lophopora graft on a Pereskiopsis that has started to pup in 6 months.



Here are some Lophs that were started at the same time but grafted onto some Opuntia.



Here is a T. Pachanoi grafted onto a Pereskiopsis. The grafted T. Pachanoi is from Mesa Garden and appears to be a longer spined variety.

The rootstock is Opuntia Compressa. So far I like it. It is almost impossible to kill. If you do a web search for grafting onto Opuntia, one of the traits is that the grafted plant tends to grow faster with a more natural appearance. Additionally it tends to flower faster than other grafts. I should know in the spring/summer if this is true.

do you have any pictures from when the grafts were started? How long have the trich on the pereskiopsis and the lophs on the opuntias been grafted? How big were they all when you grafted them?

Unfortunetly I did not take any pics when I grafted them.

I grafted them in July when they were 2-3 week old seedlings. The Pachanoi I grafted just to see what would happen. The same batch of Pachanoi's are now 1/2" high while the grafted one is over 3" tall.

I got the idea from Una's posts where he had performed the same grafts onto Pereskiopsis. The grafts onto the Opuntia are different from what has been seen here so far. I'll be updating the pics as time goes on likely.

Nice! There are tons of prickly pears growing around here. I think they're ficus-indica but i'm really not sure.

Will any opuntia species work?
Can you graft as small seedlings as you graft onto pereskiopsis?

I'm pretty sure you can use any type of Opuntia. In the spring I'm going to try grafting onto a O. Humifusa.

Regarding the size of the scion, I let the Lophs age to 2 months for the Opuntia grafts. It is possible to graft seedlings onto new pads that are growing from an Opuntia.

Do a quick search under Opuntia grafting and you'll see some great examples and how to do it.

The seedlings in the back are T. Pachanoi and T. Peruvianus seedlings.

I'll go ahead and post some seedling pictures in a new post.

Nice work Aelph! How long have you been growing cacti? Do you have any big cacti or there all seedlings? 3 years down the road and you'll have your hands full!

I started with one T. Pachanoi 2 years ago and now it's four feet tall.

Now I have about 40 cactus of various sizes not counting seedlings. I started on the seedlings in the spring to give it a try. So far I've been quite sucessful raising them. I want to get a few hundred more Trichocereus seedlings started this spring.

In fact.... I just started 6 varieties of cactus today... Aztekium, 2 types of Pelecyphora, and 3 varieties of Lophophora (diffusa, fricii, decipiens). I figure in 6 weeks I'll start grafting these seedlings onto Pereskiopsis.

How large is your pereskiopsis collection? How many will you be grafting onto? Have you seen the advanced graffting meathod where you graft many seedlings allong the vertical shaft.

How often and how much do you fert the seedlings and full grown cacti?

I have at least 100 Pereskiopsis on hand right now that I can graft to. I have about 20 more that have grafts on them.

I've seen the advanced grafting method, but it's easier to just cut off the tip and put one seedling on a single plant. I also figure that the plant would put all of it's energy into the one graft.

I just want to point out that Una that used to post here was the inspiration for grafting onto Pereskiopsis.

I'll be doing some grafts in the spring onto Selenicereus and more Opuntia grafts. The Opuntia grafts are some of the most natural grafts I've seen so far unlike the Pereskiopsis grafts.

In the summer I fert the cactus pretty heavy... about every third watering. I switch between cactus fertilizer, Miricle Gro and DynaGro. Where I live it's pretty hot in the summer and I can set out the cold hardier cactus in April and not bring them in till November. This year I ran into trouble with nursery containers and cactus, the pots got too hot and gave the cuttings the bowling pin shape. No more nursery pots for cactus.

Some quick replys......

Peyote is a type of Lophophora. Notice the picture shows a Lophophora grafted onto a Pereskiopsis. Una was the one that posted tons of pictures of how to graft a Peyote (lophaphora williamansi) onto a Pereskiopsis. I just followed his lead. Grafting a lophophora onto a Opuntia was my idea.

I've never seen Pereskiopsis seed for sale (yet). I just propogate the ones I originally purchased to get more Pereskiopsis. Hint Hint... it grows like a weed.

What kind of soil mix do you use for starting cactus seeds? Do you use a fungicide at any point in the growth cycle? Do you think one could use hydrogen peroxide as a fungicide?

Here are a few more grafts that are now 1 month old. The seedlings were 2 weeks old when I grafted them.
