PostSubject: Hana's seedling grafting in 2015/2016   Tue Jul 28, 2015 8:24 am

I used various grafting stocks as cactus seedling grafting for years.
Pereskiopsis is the current main grafting stock.
Since I use new off-shoots for the stocks, the preparation has to be started now.

Primary stocks of Pereskiopsis
72 plants in 90 mm square x 180 mm pot each
This is enough numbers to get stocks for a year.
You can see off-shoots grown last autumn but these are not able to use as the grafting stocks.


I cut old off-shoots back and added high nitrogen manure.
I will use new off-shoots in September.


The life of Pereskiopsis is relatively short.
The stock loses leaves in 2nd winter and the growing speed of scions is reduced significantly in here.
I degraft 2 years old scions by the reason.
The photo is 2 years old Ariocarpus retusus v furfuraceus cv Daruma Seiji.
I will degraft 84 of 2 years old scions and so I can graft 84 of new seedlings in this year.
I grafted 216 seedlings last year. It is less than a half in this year.

Is there a good source of Pereskiopsis seed? Im in WA and we cant import cuttings, and i cant find any seed online either.

I understand a matured Pereskiopsis velutina is in flower and can make fruits/seeds but I have never seen any matured plants in Australia.
I also have never seen seeds in market.  

I can understand the situation of WA but ----
You may try to find Hylocereus stocks.
They will work well as same as Pereskiopsis.

Thanks Hana, I'll look into Hylocereus.

In the case of Hylocereus undatus, 2 ways of propagation are available.

1. Seedlings
Collect seeds from a dragon fruit and sow as same way as other cacti seeds.
You can used these seedlings as stocks in 4~5 years.

2. Cuttings
Buy a grafted variegated Gimno, which stock is a Hylocereus.
Cut the scion off and wait off-sets coming out.
You can use some off-sets as the grafting stocks in 2nd year.

I have experience of both ways.

The photo is Hylocereus stocks which I used some years ago.
Scions are protected by paper caps.

Young off-shoots of Pereskiopsis have been developed but I need more than 15 cm length for the cuttings.
I have to wait a while.

Just 7 off-sets of Pereskiopsis had grown enough length as the stocks.
I cut them 15 cm in length and set for the rooting in the afternoon.
They were set in 5 cm square tubes and accommodated in a wet-box.

I will start to graft seedlings next Sunday.

The 1st batch of seedling grafting process has been completed.
I repotted them into 90 mm square pots in this morning.

Scions: 7 Ariocarpus retusus v furfuraceus cv Suguri-cauliflower, 1 year old
Stock setting: 04/10/2015
Grafting: 12/10/2015
Grafting process completion: 23/10/2015
Success rate: 100 %

Roots from stock cutting have reached to the bottom on tubes.
I think I can shorten days between the stock setting and the grafting.

Stocks with scions removed from tubes

After repotted

I grafted 8 seedlings in this morning.
7-Ariocarpus retusus v furfuraceus cv Daruma royal, sown seeds on 13/08/2015
1-Ariocarpus kotschoubeyanus v elephantidens, sown seeds on 13/08/2015

I used stocks set for the rooting on 20th, 4 days ago.
I believe stocks have no roots.
Scions were grafted on no-roots stocks.
The grafting box, is possible to accommodate 18 stocks.

Since I used 8 stocks, I added 8 new cuttings for the rooting.
The rooting box, also is possible to accommodate 18 cuttings.
