hey whats up, the grafts turned out awesome!!

keep it updated

don't forget to prop the stock as the scion get bigger!



I am also curious about what grow rates you will have with those long and wide stocks. It might even be another Pereskiopsis species, than I am using..

I have been really busy with work so i didnt get around to doing as many grafts as i would like so ill have to wait now till march.
I have shown a pic of one of my grafts it is showing hanazono characteristics at a young age i am happy with this one. They could have grown much more but i simply have not had the time to nurture them.
After my trail with periskiopsis grafting i am still in favour of using harrissia as those little spines on peri are so annoying i think both have there own benefits.

Nice result CC. I agree pereskiopsis is a bit of a pain, I usually only use it for very young seedlings less than a month old. After that Hylocereus works just fine. With the exception of Lophophora SP I find these two are a match made in heaven and growth rate is unbelievable on Pereskiopsis.

Grafting on the topic I have found two interesting videos from the netherlands.

Another this is from the same seed pod funny how some seem to get such different characteristics i guess thats what i like so much about the different forms of asterias and there are so many. That is a good reason for grafting then you can speed up the process and create your own forms in a short time.

Thanks Bloss for the vids on grafting makes me motivated again to do some more i need to get my hands on some good seed of the different froms of astrophytums i have heaps of seeds but it is of plants i already have.
It is very hot at the moment here so i am getting seeds organised to sow ready for grafting in march. Ill show some pics of some seedlings i grafted last march. Under my grafted seedlings.

One thing i have learnt about periskiopsis is that it loves water and should be kept growing for maximum growth i have had some that have lost there leaves and i notice they still grow but much slower. So in the past i may have let them dry out too much that they lose there leaves if you can avoid this the growth of scion is much faster.
