Can you salvage at least one head to graft.
The mealies luv sulco's i spray as a preventative even if i don't see any.
Sorry for your loss trust me i know what it is like especially with a nice clump.
I have sent pups to 2 friends of nearly every clone that i have this is my insurance policy in case i lose one.
I have heaps of photos over the last few days just have to find the time to put them up.

Unfortunately not, it was totally rotted out below ground. Did cut it up in the hopes to save atleast a head or 2 but everywhere I cut it was brown and more brown tissue.
Might of been able to cut high and graft but don't have any real grafting stock on hand or experience in grafting for that matter.

Now is the time to learn how to graft Very Happy

If you don't have any stock grab one of those small "scop's"from bunnings / hamiltons / collecter corner and get yours self a sharp knife and have a go at worst you are going to end op with a scop with it head cut off and it will pup and give you more grafting stock to play with. If you manage to pull it off its a win win as you have a successful graft and you saved a cacti.

Gorgeous plants mate! Wish mine would put on a show like that!

As for the grafting...I'd have to go bin diving now if I were to do that mate! lol Might stock up with some grafting stock just in case though, or just lop a stem of my M. geometrizans.

Great thread! I love the pictures and the grafting info. ( I want to try and graft rebutias onto opuntia pads.)

One thing I have often read is that sulcos flower best if they have a cold winter/dormant period. And that they are reluctant to flower in the tropics where the winters are warm.

Yet your sulcos flower beautifully. Maybe the winters in Adelaide are cold enough to do the job. Maybe really cold winters aren't as important as they say.

So I was wondering if you knew how successful growing sulcos for flowers would be in the warmer parts of Australia. Do they really need cold winters?

cheers

We have cold winters here in Adelaide but it rarely gets below 5degrees and not much above 15degress in winter.
I think a definite dormant period helps with flowering and that goes for most cacti. Also they need plenty of light, plants in dark corners of the hot houses always seem to flower less profusely then there counterparts in areas of more light. santa

Thanks for that! Winters there don't sound hugely different to the ones we get here. I had visions of sticking them in the fridge!

I wouldn't go to that extreme they are cacti after all. Very Happy
You should have no trouble were you are remember they like plenty of light i grow everything under a 50% white shade cloth and some extra covering in the extremes of summer.

That sounds good, I'll try some 50% white shade cloth. I guess some sort of detachable plastic covering might help as well, we can get very heavy rain.

cheers
