Godamnit! I gave my cactus a melanoma...
    #3993916 - 03/31/05 08:51 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Well, not a melanoma obviously but i sunburnt it when i put it outside and now yellow and brown lumpy spots are appearing all over the branch which is most exposed to the sun.



I reckon i shouldn't have bring it inside in the winter with no special lighting. I tried moving it gradually from shade to partial sun over the last 4 or 5 weeks but as low as 1h of direct (morning) sunlight is doing more damage, i think...

I've been watering it once a week or so and temps have been high but the thing doesn't seem to have broken dormancy yet.

Is this damage going to cost me the whole affected branch?
Should i cut this one branch off and eat it or is it still possible that it recovers and resumes growing?

As a side note i have a new addition, a small T. Peruvianus shoot with pups all over :grin:

Is this a San Pedro? If so, i've had the same problem before, and it takes a long time to regenerate. Can you possibly take a picture from further away, so we can view the whole cactus + the sunburn? After i brought my pedro in for winter months, and then brought it back out, going from shade to full sunlight in 6 weeks, it got sunburnt. After that, i couldn't bring it outside anymore. I'm interested in more replies in this thread now, i think i'm gonna get me another san pedro. I have a close friend that has 25 year old cacti, and they are absolutely enormous and gorgeous. I'll ask him if i can get some pics :smile:

Yup! My camera is shitty tho. Here they are

The burnt side


The healthy side

I'm portuguese but the cutting was actually sent to me from Brazil. The magazine is from Brazil, it came inside the package to protect the plant :wink:
Glad to know your cactus recovered. Hope mine does that as well. What did you do to it? Went slower with the process of acclimatizing it, or just left it be and it eventually stopped getting burned and healed?

It was sold to me as a t. pachanoi. The spines are larger than usual and the overall look is slightly different from the prototypical Pedro. But it doesn't look like a peruvianus, or a scopulicula or a bridgesii.

One thing i know for sure: whatever it is, it is very potent :grin:
But i'd bet it is Pedro grown from seed, instead of that one common clone.
