Areole Grafting * 1
    #4407493 - 07/15/05 01:23 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)




I did a really slovenly grafting of a Gymnocalycium areole to a Pereskiopsis subject.
I didn?t expect it to work so I didn?t even make the effort of sterilizing and quickly working. I was wrong. It is adapting to its new house very good

It proved to be much easier than expected!

The procedure is:

1) Cut the thorns of an areole with a clipper (so that you can apply pressure easier afterwards)

2) Cut a piece from the cactus containing that areole.

3) Make a sharp straight cut so that it can be placed on the pereskiopsis

4) Proceed as if you had a seedling

Just imagine what that means to Trichocereus cacti that have lots of areoles and are not so easy to flower!!!

Keep in mind that the produced plant is a clone of the original,
meaning that if you have a Trich with an interesting feature (nice taste for example) you can have a clone of it with no cost to you or to the original plant!

Its a very interesting thread! Once you master this teqnique you could go about grafting more precious speciment aeroles.

Could one optimize the two surfaces to "fit together" better ensuring a sure bind? Look at tree grafting and you should get an idea what im talking about!

Its also very precious when you have a unique plant that doesn't do well. ( infection etc) You just cut a healthy areole and you clone it.

My answer to binding:

Nice and simple!

Nothing better than some good ol' weight on top! This kind of rubber you use as a "stand" for the lighter are very nice since their height can be easily manipulated to fit the height of any reasonable sized pereskiopsis. The worst case senario you can encounter with this method is having to utilise some books underneath the rubber for unusually tall pereskiopsis :laugh: (Well,its not a good idea to graft on hude pereskiopsis anyway!)

Thanks Faslimy!

Psilo:

*I?m not very sure about the necessity of applying pressure to pereskiopsis grafts but I always use it. Next time I?m gona do it without pressure.

*The rubber-lighter thing is the best for small scale grafting. There is always the ?tape? way but it is more prone to overthrowing the graft.
(BTW , books don?t like 95+ RH )

*Grafting on a huge pereskiopsis could provide faster growing rate and support up to a bigger size. Maybe I?ll try it to see what happens.

The scion had become one piece with the stock.
I thought it would be safe to water it.
:foreheadslap:
But it seems that I overdid it and the ?inner fluids pressure? became so high that it pushed off  the scion?  :bitch:

Nevermind?
Next time!

OK, so I had a not-very-healthy looking loph (too wet for too long I think, although there were no signs of it actually rotting), so I decided to experiment a bit.

The largest four pedros in the picture have areole grafts on, the little pedro has the meristem grafted on top.

I just hope it works, I'm not sure how much the apparently poor health of the loph will affect it :shrug:.

I'll check them at the weekend and let you know if they've healed up.



And a few new loph seedling on pereskiopsis grafts which I thought I might as well show you.

Hey ytse and openminded - any upates on your areole grafting? I am thinking of doing this soon and want to know how well these went. I am planning on grafting a lopho areole on a pereskiopsis. Anyone else with any areole grafting tips? :smile: :peace:

My normal grafts are doing great.

As for the areole grafting you should check my previus post. Its quite clear I think.

Oh, yeah. It is clear, sorry. You just tried the one areole graft? How long after the graft did you water it? Thanks for the response. :smile:
