Lophophora Williamsii areole grafting
    #4574002 - 08/24/05 08:38 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I was wondering if a Lophophora Williamsii areole cutting could be sent in the mail, if it would remain viable throughout the trip? Would it be sent wrapped in wet tissue ala cutting or perhaps on an agar slant? If so... Hrm. If anyone's wants to test this, I'd be a willing recipient!

P.S.
I have never done an areole graft, have not done alot of research on it... but can other cacti genera be propagated this way?

I'd bet most/all cacti can be propagated this way. Some might be more difficult than others, but I can't think of a reson why it couldn't be done with all, in theory.

If I was sending an aereole for grafting, I'd leave as much flesh on it as possible, and let it partially callous over. Then the recipient could trim off the excess flesh (which will have helped to prevent it from drying out in the mail), which will at the same time expose nice fresh tissue for grafting. I would definitely let it heal a bit before sending, and not seal it up too much or it might rot. A little polypropylene culture tube might be a good thing to package it into, perhaps wrap the aereole in cotton wool or something inside.

That's what I'd do, anyway.

Maybe the best thing to do would be for the sender to graft the aereole onto pereskiopsis, and then when it had fully joined together, cut off the graft, leaving a couple of inches of pereskiopsis attached. I bet this would work quite well.

AVIATION accident?

I'm too curious not to ask.... :lol:

Anyway, I've just made some areole grafts, I'll post my progress in the link Psiloman gave.

Well.. Not much of an "aviation" accident ,like something flew on them like the septemper 11 desperate attempt but more of an "Aviator" accident.

Some birds ,took a liking on my plump lophophoras.They pecked on them,ate one in half (!) and...took of with a button they completely uprootet (it was in gravel loosely put). Of course one could say that even eating half of one,let alone uprooting and carying away a whole button for feasting and sharing can QUITE PROPABLY cause some ...aviation accidents.

The freaky possibility would be the birdy that did it,crushing under the influence on the third potted plant and ruining it!

It has displeased me a lot but also upped my curiosity on why did birds peck only at this cacti...They did in the past but minor bites.Did they like it and come back for more? Ytse has the interesting semi humorous theory that the bird was actually Aldous Huxley reincarnated...

I can only pray for those flying rats!

That's interesting, a bird once pecked at one of mine too - they've never pecked at my other cacti. Luckily I saw it and scared it off before it flew away with the whole plant!!

My theory was that lophs might look a little bit like curled up caterpillars, which the birds eat.

Ah ,they certainly have a curled caterpillar look.

I hope the bird survives it,i think by now it might have got its lesson...
