Peyote, light and water preferences???
    #3513614 - 12/17/04 02:42 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I was wondering what needs for water and light lophophora williamsii (sp?) had. A freind received a couple plants off the net. Two big buttos and 22 small buttons. Problem is the flesh of them feels slightly soft and looks a bit wrinkled. The group has been planted about a month and root progress is slow ( the plant got tipped over and only one root appeared to be growing. Should he just give it time or is more needed. Right now its about 1" from 2 growlux lights on for 12 hours a day, and gets watered about every 4 days, when its really dry, and has been for about a day. I advised him that it probably didn't like a lot of water but wanted to be able to give hime better advice. He doesn't have access to the net, and I figured I could find an expert here. Thanks for your help. BTW, I got some advice here for pereskiopsis cloning and that's going fairly well, but there is some green algae looking stuff growing on the top of the soil on one pot. What should I do? Fungicide? I spooned it off the top and only a bit has come back. Should I just keep removing it until it disappears (that method worked for another pot few monthes ago)?

I report what it says. The sacred mushroom takes me by the hand and brings me to the world where everything is known. It is they, the sacred mushrooms, that speak in a way I can understand. I ask them and they answer me. When I return from the trip that I have taken with them, I tell what they have told me and what they have shown me."

Stop watering that thing right now before you kill it! They can go a long time without water and if it's soft, it's likely got some rot. Water is the worst thing for rot. Let it sit dry for a while and do not give it a lot of light. I'd give it indirect light until it gets better. Good luck.

“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)

Thanks for the advice, I'll make sure the watering stops immediately. Since its in cactus soil it dries out really fast, so it should get better with luck. Is the rot internal? The "roots" seem fine/unrotted. Its not doomed is it? There are so many puppies it would be a real shame if it died.

If its just soft that means its full and stop watering. Watering every 2 weeks is a better schedule for indoors under flos. You can bring those lights much closer. Floros only work real well 3" and closer, i keep my cacti even seedlings within 1" of my flo tubes. Brining the lights down should increase growth and get rid of the mush quciker so you can water sooner.

If they show some purple from too much light pull the lights away an inch or two then drop them back on in a week, but floros shouldnt burn them even if your 1" away. Dont bring the lights too close to the bulbs because if you not carefull the lights hitting the buttons can give them bruises.

Im sure there all growing but you cant tell. You should look into grafting onto a collumar cacti like pedro or Myrtillocactus geometrizans, you could also try opuntia if the buttons are less then 1cm. Try mesagarden.com if you want some grafting stocks for cheap. Good luck!
