PostSubject: Hydro Cacti   Mon Aug 13, 2012 7:07 pm

I've been playing around with some Astros, Arios & some Lophs and when they are grafted onto Pereskiopsis, they can grow completely without soil, and in the last few months I have been experimenting, none have split (yet). I only have a photo I did some weeks ago, and there's only one grafted in it )on the right side of the photo). I will do some updated photos tonight or tomorrow.

It really does look more like a science lab than a gardeners workspace... Then again I guess it really is an experiment!

All plants look pretty sweet. How come they don't rot being completely submersed in water all the time? Were the peres placed in the water without roots?

Is that A. Trigonus? massive or does the scale of the photo make everything look out of proportion?

Keep up the experimenting!

I've had some of the pereskiopsis in the water for 4 or 5 months straight, with no signs of rot, *** except for the leaves *** If you put the leaves under the water level, they will rot off, but the stems are watertight / waterproof. All of them were originally put into the water / nutrients with no roots. And yeah that is a big Ariocarpus in the background, it's at least 40 years old, and I was very lucky to be able to buy it back in May.
