One of the arms on my San Pedro has fallen over
    #4333886 - 06/24/05 10:39 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I just got back from the gathering and went on my porch to see that one of the arms of my beautiful cactus has collapsed seemingly under its own weight. What does this mean, is it bad, and can I fix the problem? The arm just looks like it flopped right over.

replant it anew or better yet... eat it!!!

I was just asking about inducing my cacti to branch. And advice for a non-green thumb?

What ^^^^^ he said.

The cactus decided to present you with either a new specimen (root it in dry soil and plant it) or a nice mesc trip :wink:

Drugsaregood, there is one thread around from Una which details a procedure for forcing branching in san pedro with some sort of plant hormone (BZP or something). The search engine is your friend.

That is if you don't want to cut off the tip, which a simpler chem free way of having your cactus pup.

I'd like to see a pic. Normally this is highly unusual. There could have been rot involved.

thanks, but I read those threads before. A bunch of chemical names and biology doesn't help an engineer much. Is kieti paste/BAP/cyto-whatever available in green house stores? And wouldn't cutting off the tip cause it to slow it's vertical growth?

No it would not just slow the vertical growth of the branch it would stall it completely.No more vertical growth for this branch!

Search in garden shops for Keiki paste if you want something readymade,its used usually on orchids. Ask for cytokinins (pronounce : Shy-toe-keen-eens).If everything fails try some Coconut milk.This can be found in cans at your local asian/indian food market (i hope you livei n the stases or somewhere were asian shops are widespread.)

Cutting the tip would cause it to completely cease vertical growth in that one branch.
