Yeah my friend, but I guess this parafilm has been outdoors, right? I think in the constant weather of my growbox, with no rain it might stay (almost) as is. If not, I don't care, the main aim is to have it grown!


You are 100% right on the fact that I move my grafts out into full sunlight when its not winter. I expose them fully to the elements whether it is rain, sun, hurricane, or tornado. I just skimp on the full brunt of the winter only allowing my specimens to experience a few hours of freezing weather.

Nice. Why is the tricho green? Aren't you trying to provide it as much light as possible?

Here is my "little" macrogonus, 38 days ...

Second picture is one of many successful areole grafts (Pach Jessica x Scopulicola), inspired by Wakynian. The top graft is Brigesii, I grafted it first an it was not growing, so I grafted the areole. Then it suddenly started to grow, so I will have to decide which will get the chance to grow.

Hi pete666, thats some really nice work thereThumbs up
A couple things on the lighting. It mainly comes down to my lack of experience with lights coupled with my schedule, so its a matter of just some minor adjustments. Its a little trickier than that tho because like you can see in the pics, it seems to b perfect for the lophophoras but not quite strong enough for the trichs. Ive had to move other trays of lophs back further from the light cuz i was literally melting some of them. For a trich that reddish color looks nice and healthy, but the lophs will only seem to tolerate it for a week or 2 and then disappearShocked
I also sow everything i plan on grafting all in one sectioned off tray to save on space and material so i have to adjust according to the lophs appearance. Theres a lot more i dont graft that takes up much of the space here so a couple extra trays is a hassle to squeeze in. You can see in the pics tho that the texana has a nice reddish color, so i had to back that tray up going off of that ones looks, now that ive taken all them and the albertos out to graft the tray is back directly under the light.

As I am getting more experience, I realize how important is having the seedlings as fat as possible. If it is fat, it is more likely to lay on the vascular bundle and it is more stable, so the hands don't have to be so steady when applying the parafilm. It all means higher success rate.
I was expecting the more light the fatter the seedling is going to be, but honestly I am not sure it works this way. At least in my case - I have plenty of light, but am still not happy with the fatness. But there can be other factors in the game too.

And lophos - I have decided to start just with trichos for first year or two, so I don't have an idea whether it is normal that they are so sensitive to light. But I don't remember Wakynian would mention any difference between them regarding full sun exposition.

Day 20 alberto vojtechii, stalled out for a bit. I see others using the little 2 or 4 inch seed starting trays for their peres but mine didnt seem to enjoy them very much, figured id given em enough time to show some kinda growth and gave em more space.....a couple days later and look much happier.
tersheckii that i had all but given up on, hadnt done anything for proly 2 months, all it wanted was somethin to stretch out in.

Lovely CatPharm. Yes, I am using the trays, but it is just because I am growing indoors, so the space is very limited. I am aware the root mass is not ideal, but this is the constraint I have to accept. They are really handy for manipulation though.

Thanks pete.....im also growing indoors for half the year and am tryin to take up as little space as possible.
Ive looked into the same kind of trays i see that you have but was unwilling to pay the more than double the price for shipping than the original cost of the trays themselves. Ive also got a million other pots layin around but would take up way too much space.

Instead ive been using containers like this, i can fit about 20 peres in one container but they look happier at about 10 or 12, they can be moved and watered fairly quickly and easily, and they cost less than a dollar.

So much of this is kinda on the fly right now and i wasnt really expecting to have everything at the point its at. If all keeps going this well, ill make sure to be much more prepared next fall/winter.

If you are able to successfully graft all of them at once, it is ok. It might be difficult to regraft just some once there are growing scions around. I guess you are grafting two or three seedlings to one peres? How do you label them, do you have just one variety per container?

Ive had multiple stock in one planter before and have done well with them. I only decided towards the end of the summer to use the 6 cell, 2in trays for the newest cuttings to help save on space. Its been less than 2 weeks since theyve been moved from those trays, so i havent been able to really do any grafting and proly wont for some more weeks, but i dont think the actual grafting work will be the biggest concern.

If anything Id be more nervous about some sort of infection or fungus that would effect a dozen or so at once, but ive made sure to keep everything as sanitary as i can and judging by how all my other plants, that ive either brought in for the winter or that have just recently been planted, are looking healthy and issue free, i felt ok taking that chance.

Since ive never put as many in one pot before, i was thinkin to just keep the same seedling in each tray, itd just b easier to keep track of. Im missing out on the handiness of manipulation u mentioned, another downside, but i needed a quick and cheap solution. So im just happy for now to see their leaves turning a nice full green again and the couple of last seedlings grafted starting to grow again. Eventually ill find what i need that makes the best use of what space ive got, this years all trial and error really.

Yeah, the same here. I wanted initially just to finish the box, learn to grow peres and learn grafting in the first year and wait for next year for full-on run, but it goes quite good, so I think I will have all sections full of grafts this year. But I made many errors too and spent much more time on that than was necessary. Next season should be easier.

So, found some time and a couple stock looking to be doin fine. I believe ive damaged a few peres with some lighting, but for the early part of the fall they were the only lights i had, and they seem to be taking a pretty long time to recover. Grafts seem to be growing a bit slower also, but ive also got other stock that are growing daily it seems, and feels like the right time to throw some more seeds down.

Sown the last few of these astrophytum super cabuto × capricorne back on christmas and grafted a couple. Heres 1 on Day 1 out of the parafilm

Sorry bout upside down pic

Well, this thread is not dead Smile I would like to know what's up with Wakinyan...?
Here is a picture of some of my grafts. As I've stated in another thread, I am using up to four grafts per one grafting of one rootstock, here is how it looks few weeks after. Two graftings, two seedlings per graft...
