What's wrong with my poor peyote cutting?
    #4216853 - 05/25/05 01:49 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

This peyote cutting was planted about 2 weeks ago, since then it has began to cave in on the side, is this rot, shrivel or what, it was only watered once a few days after planting.


What should I do? Let it dry more, spray with fungicide solution or what?

I have 2 others, one is in perfect health that was planted about one week earlier, and another which looks pretty good, but with a very small patch that looks like the same condition as the severe one.(you can kind of see it, it's on the one next to the bad one.)

That's a humidity dome where I germinate seeds, the RH of the room outside of that dome is only like 50%.

I'm going to just let it dry out more, I had the same idea, thanks for the support. However, if anyone knows anymore about this, or has any suggestions, I'm all ears.

It seems that high humidity created a fungus problem.

First of all you should lower the humidity.
This plants don?t need high humidity anymore. Contrary, it creates them a problem.

Maybe the soil humidity is high as well.
Your pot is big. Do you use cactus soil?
Normal soil holds more humidity.
You should not water them very often.
Apart from that you should not water cactuses after repotting them for a while.
They are prune to root rot.

The best thing you can do now is water them sparingly, lower the humidity and fight the fungus.

Maybe some one can identify the fungus so that you can look for the appropriate fungicide. I had seen some peyotes with the same problem in a cactus nursery.

Once you know the name of the fungus you can look for the remedy!
Good luck!

Put them in dry stoney soil, water them once a month with just four of five ML of water from a syringe or eye dropper. Do that for a few years while they devlop roots.

yup, get them out of that soil.

lophs like a mix low in organic matter, yours appears to be mostly organic. you should mix your own, they aren't very fond of store bought cactus mixes. I mixed up some with gravel, river sand, pumice, horticultural charcoal and a small amount of potting soil, there are other recipes out there though. the watering advice given above is not correct, they should be watered generously when dry and allowed to dry out completely between waterings.

here's a closeup of some of the soil I mixed up recently. notice it's mostly sand, pumice and gravel, i tried to keep organic material (regular potting mix) below 10% of the total...



you might want to cut out that rotted part if you can, before it spreads. definitely get all of them out of that dirt though or the same thing will happen.

i have seen something similar before...
it was a parasite who layed an egg inside the lophs skin and the bug left a hole in the lophs side as it came out...
re-plant it on a clean vase/soil mix and let it recover...

The soil is a cactus mix, with about 1/3 perlite, some calcium carbonate and an inch of pure perlite at the bottom for drainage. I changed up my grow area yesterday, they now receive more light and even a light breeze from a fan. It even seems to be looking a little better today, drier and lighter in color, maybe it's just the extra light though that makes it look that way.  :tongue:

1/3rd perlite and the look of the soil tell me it's mostly organic. some cacti like that, lophophoras do not.

i think that stuff is bad news man, seriously, i would bet money that soil is the root of your problem and the same thing will happen to the others if it's not changed.

good luck anywho...

Personally. I would cute off all the rot/fungus, let it dry/callous over, and probably replant in a better soil mix. Then watch it very closely and wait up to a month before I watered it again. Good luck.

Well I replanted, mixed the soil with mostly sand and gravel, hopefully they all do a lot better now.
They even look cooler now. I'll take a picture in like a month or so and show if it's doing any better.

DH is right on the money. You want the soil to have a coarse texture so that it drains well. Lophophora also likes a somewhat alkaline pH, commercial soils contain tons of peat which is acidic and will encourage rot. Hope they're doing better now in their new home.

I don't think pH was ever a problem, as I added calcium carbonate right at the start.
