Good luck to all... hope my grafts go alright... i've only ever had 2 fissuratus/pere grafts take

PostSubject: 1st attemption of the grafting   Mon Nov 23, 2009 8:31 am

This competion has given a good oppotunity to try very young seedling grafting.
I saw a note on the internet said "It was possible to graft Astrophytum seedlings, 2 days after germination."
I grafted a 2 days old Ario seedling at 10:00 am yesterday.
I am not sure this can take or not. I took a photo this morning.

Mine are down Smile put them all in on the 19/11

Approximate numbers:

30 x Ariocarpus Agavoides,
30 x Ariocarpus Retusus ssp Trigonus
50 x Ariocarpus Retusus v Elongatus
60 x Ariocarpus Kotschoubeyanus v albiflorus

Will post a photo in a day or so. No heatmat for mine either, it is plenty hot in my grow room.......probably too hot.


I still need a few Loph seeds if anyone has a couple to spare?

PostSubject: Repotting   Fri Nov 27, 2009 8:26 pm

I confirmed successfull grafting of a 2 days old seedling yesterday and repotted it into a parmanent pot.
I use 50 mm tube for grafting stock propagation but repot to 90 mm deep square pot (Olive pot) after grafted.
I perpared a special potting-mix for this plant.
Main soil: 75% cactus and succulent potting mix in market, 25% matured chiken pellet manure
Top soil: 100% matured chiken pellet manure

Darren
I think the sunlight in my greenhouse is softer than yours but the color of your elongatus is also not too bad.
I use two layers of 50% green shadecloth.

Nice work Darren and Hanazono, both looking good. I'm amazed how fast Hanazono's has grown. I have a few entries but they are struggling because I grafted them to young Hylo stock because that was all I had available. I will post a pic later today.

some closeups of these little babies... hows the pattern around the base of the smaller plant!!!

i think i damaged the growth point of the larger one and that is why it is pupping? they are under lights for 16/24 in standard potting mix which is constantly soaked in nitrosol soluble fertiliser but then left to dry for 1 day in every 7.

i have no idea about growing plants so this is all new to me but i am loving it!!! i am pruning my grafting stock everyday

PostSubject: Prematurity kotschoubeyanas   Thu Feb 04, 2010 8:01 pm

Please have a look the updated photo, taken on 02/02/10.
You can see a flower bud starting to appear.
The body size is still very small but I think autumn will be soon.
2 of 10 grafted kotschoubeyanus f Rio Verde for the competition have flower buds.
