One of my favourite grafts has split and I mean literally in half !! So much so the vascular tissue is exposed Crying or Very sad
So not happy. Looks like todays hot dry windy weather and a little too much water caused it. It was grafted to Myrtillo Geo, I thought It looked pretty turgid and fat but didn't think it would split like that.

I really liked this plant....What a shame it looks terminal. That will teach me to force growth too early in spring Sad

I will post a pic tomorow.

sorry to hear it HN mate. Sad
it wouldn't have split here.. only got to 21C
i don't have one but i did have the opportunity recently to buy a small own roots one for $6.. perhaps i should have taken that opportunity!
apparently they have somewhat of a reputation for this splitting behaviour, even more so if grafted. i guess they just aren't designed for fast growth...the same could be said for a lot of miniatures i think.

Yeah it got real warm round our way HN too. My cacti loved it, though the Brugmansias drooped all day in the shade Razz

By the looks of things Cintia have very soft and thin skin much like lophophora. Too bad I guess, I have some small sedlings I will graft so not all is lost.

Still it sucks.

I would have jumped on that plant lewis !! I think Cintia are wonderful and still very rare.

very shitty Sad happens though.....

but you may still have a plant that lives. splitting in half is oogly as &*(& but they often make it through and pup form there Smile in 5 years you may not even be able to notice it cause you have a nice bouquet Smile

hope it pulls through SmileSmileSmileSmile

Ahh damn, sorry to hear about this HN.

This comes from Cactus Art.



Cultivation:

On a graft the plants are easier to grow, but the body splits if
over-watered (especially in spring).

I hope so. If you look from the other side it looks perfectly normal.

like said, keep it dry and you will have a nice cactus once more Smile

did you cut it or was the split that wide?

I have not touched it. I think it split so wide due to the dry heat and wind yesterday.

I got one of these little buggers, and I almost watered it once which caused it to split... it has survived so far, but I only think about watering it now. Rolling Eyes

This was before it split...

That sucks HN, I feel your pain mate. Some of my Turbs have come close to splitting this spring as well, and thats on their own roots.

CP, I dont blame for wanting to water it. She looks so thirsty...Crying or Very sad
I havent got any Cintia's my self, I might see if I can get my hands onto one...

Well Kada and Lewis apprear to be correct on this one. The plant have kinda sunken in near the growing tip but is continuing to put out new growth. I will post some updated pics in a week or 2.

Not as bad as I first thought.

An update. It looks to be growing quite rapidly regardless of the split....very weird. In the second image you can see a pup just breaking through Smile

I've heard of cacti that incur meristem damage becoming monstrose but it's hard to get consistent results from doing it intentionally.

I guess we will see, look forward to seeing pics.

I've got my fingers crossed for you HN. Shocked
