UPDATE: Help with a regraft
    #9856623 - 02/24/09 04:25 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I'm gonna be degrafting my A. myriostigma quadricostatum as the pereskiopsis it is on is dying. I've never degrafted and regrafted before and I'm wondering what stock I should use. I have P. azureus and myrillocactus geometrizans at my place and I can go out and buy any common home depot cactus. What do you guys recommend?

UPDATE: Here are the grafts I did. I just pulled them out of the humidity chamber. They seem to be doing alright.




I just noticed my A. fissuratus v. hintonii is growing another tubercle... it only took 6 months....

both your pilocereus and myrtillo will make great stocks.

take your pick :thumbup:

Noice. I think I'm gonna go with the myrtillo just to avoid being stuck on spines half the time. Thanks bud.

hehe that's half my reasoning for using myrtillo, they are so easy to work with, they are not the fastest stock but still :thumbup:

if i had easy access to p. azureus, i would use them more :yesnod:

Ah, I see. So would you recommend giving the azureus a haircut and then proceeding as normal?

Just recommend you to cut that scion on the top half of it and graft it to another stock. You won´t be regrafting the whole scion, that won´t work.

a haircut? lol
i suppose you could cut some of the upper spines off but if you remove loads that will spoil the appearance of the stock. (if that is what you meant) :shrug:

if you are certain that the pereskiopsis is going to die, perhaps try grafting the bottom half of the scion too, like an upsidedown graft.
considering that it is only going to perish if left on a dying stock, there is nothing to lose.

Yeah. It looks like it's just old. The areoles are all black and the spines are giant, the leaves are all falling off, and the stock is getting woody as hell. It's not rot or pests or anything. That much I'm sure of. Even if it isn't dying, growth has slowed to the point where its unnoticable over the past 6 months.
That was my plan for the bottom half. And yes, haha... that's what I meant by a haircut. I guess I'm not really concerned with the appearance of the stock. I just want the damned myriostigma to commence growing again.

Because in the connection the vascular tissues of grafts become very thick (woody), and will not pick, unless you graft a higher portion (softer) of the scion.
