lid rust is an issue indeed, but it takes a while.
one would note i use plastic or open tubes.........

for fert 7-7-7 is where i start ususally.
not enough to shock anything , but enough for some color.
one of the trix on all this is adjusting nutes to light.

as one uses more power LED and other high energy lights, one needs more nutes.
serious lights and fast growth, cactus will run pale, so one would move to 10-10-10 , ( in 3 steps / 2 weeks)
as they color up, back off, and alwys keep in mind there are limits, they can be salt and pH shocked,
 and damage isnt always apparent for days or weeks.............

we can explore this line of question in this thread.
this method does make lophs and pereskiopsis really grow at a fast clip.
nute and light needs must be balanced indeed.


my answer to forum clutter is this XHTTL flagship thread,
wich is primarily what i do and present for actual cacti grow-0-rama,
AND,
my " annies daily cactus" thread in general discussion,
for all other cactus and associated "annie land".

keeps it simple, beyond that, i comment on threads when i see a direct need.
make every thread/ comment count.


i DO have several other cactus teks i intend to publish such as,......
( all direct spin offs or side teks from this basic XHTTL thread)

annies seed teks.

annies advanced hydro and LED system designs.

annies advanced re root and " aerophora" ( really really good new stuff)

 and probably gonna do a " greatest hits"
with bizzare stuff like........
 sushiphora, alienophora, loph racers, team carrot,
an all new "super lophs stress test" and tissue cloning...........on gels of course,
( you know , all the stuff that left the other forums aghast)

expect lophs on nylon also.......

and most of all, ( drum roll)
a pereskiopsis thread unrivaled.
( with associated grafting techniques for lophs en-masse)

stay tuned.....dont touch that mouse.
its all here on sacredcactus.org.

Great photos, thanks! :)

By the way Anne, what level of illuminance and color temp would you consider ideal for this tek?
Do you believe in the THIRD SUMMER OF LOVE?

good to see you psyduck!

my present reccomendations are 50 W sq ft, at one foot  6500k,

i use like 6x 24W LED , and sometimes a blue booster from a custom built 450 nm LED array.
for a 2 x 2 shelf.

theres alot of angles you can take on this.

my preference these days is toward LED spotlights.


one of the keys is power, the other color,
more blue is always better.
more power is good up to a point.

as one raises the power, be prepared for them to get neon greener,
and then inch up the nutes to dial in a more solid green color.

I need to know more about this, why have you stopped posting Anne?
I had the idea about growing peresk in hydro and was astounded to find th pictures and i found my way to this forum..
Its so depressing seeing so many negative comments about this Tek on different forums i really thought people were smarter but maybe they choose to not use their intelligence for some reason because this is some next level shit.
Anne Halonium i need to talk to you so bad, please PM me or post the rest of your results because im fucking dying here.

My suggestion would be not to die for those results you want, but to simply replicate them as best you can as fits your growing plan. Pereskiopsis lend themselves to growing in wide variety of environments from hydroponics to bog-ponics, to virtually whatever suits your fancy. Pereskiopsis can indeed facilitate your whim. But rather than take another's photos as evidence it is far simpler to simply perform a series of experiments yourself and thus claim the knowledge as your own practical first hand knowledge.

Im not actually dying its just a saying that is meant to express how much someone looks forward to something.
I'm asking for the pictures and notes because i want to see them and i want to know about her resuts, I do not want to replicate her work i am doing my own already and i have been growing hydro for a very long time.
What do you mean take anothers picture as evidence? I saw the pictures and sure its evidence it works.
I have zero interest in claiming knowledge as "my own" but tnx for your suggestion kind sir...now can we please see some more awesome cactiporn Anne? Im dying here!

Surely you jest? I did not need clarification that you were not actually dying, but understood completely your admiration for her work. I was not aware you were doing hydro already, but thank you for sharing. I would love to see some pictures of your own hydro work if you would be so kind to share. Semantics aside, if you are performing hydro with cacti already then I think we might be just as capable of learning from your posts as any others. I do however share your desire to see anyone else's take on a procedure or method whether it is identical or not. A matter of degree of change or difference matters not to me, but rather the sharing is what is important as I simply love to see others attempts. As for what do I mean about evidence... I meant simply to try hydro for yourself. As you already stated or implied... you are proficient at hydro already. Again, I would implore you to share here as it really sounds as if you have a lot to offer.

I know you don't need clarification and maybe this might be my mistake for expecting a harsh welcome but it does feel like you want evidence... i will provide.
I am an expirienced grower for sure and would love to share pictures and ideas and together as a community we can figure out things that none of us could by ourselves.
This is the best place for information on peresk in hydro and people are starting to understand how awesome LED lights are now even though most people think they wont be efficient enough to produce nice growth.
I googled "LED pereskiopsis hydro" and i found my way here.. I will do my best to bring people here but since most people dont have decent enough knowledge about growing they are currently failing to see why this TEK is so impressive and what this could lead to. We just need to keep posting impressive results and wait for people to raak fokken wys.

Again, please do not think I do not appreciate your comments or your knowledge. I think everyone has something to contribute. It has been my experience that those that know how to do something such as hydro will often post pictures to that effect. As I saw you were merely lamenting the absence of someone who knew a specific technique you liked I falsely assumed you must not have any experience of your own.

Why lament that which you can do yourself? For me, a more positive take would be to share ones own experience with this technique if it is one in which you yourself employ. For me, I would seek to be a voice of experience and share my experience with others if this is indeed a technique you are familiar with and enjoy. That may just be my own bias, but I really do feel we could stand to learn a lot more from you sharing your knowledge and experience and yes... photos if you have them.

For me, I prefer to grow via bog-ponics. So, I share those techniques which really aren't all that different from this one.

I genuinely look forward to your sharing of knowledge and your future posts Acidmademesmile. Perhaps your unique perspective on this technique or any other technique you have duplicated and would like to share would indeed be enlightening to many here. Any novel twists that you might like to share as well.... any and all are welcome here. And again, my humble apologies for assuming you had not practiced this technique yourself.

I appreciate what you are saying and indeed i think we will have a lot to talk about! However i do feel we are hijacking this thread and my post was intended to incentivise Anne to post more of her pictures and share information.
I am still experimenting but i felt that if my results could be of benefit to others then i would share my results for sure.. but ofcourse we can talk about what im trying out atm that is why i am here! And I will try my best to help out and hopefully learn a bunch myself at the same time.
I apologize for any misunderstandings.

I think this all relevant guys, so no need to feel you're highjacking the thread. Besides anne hasn't posted in this thread for over a year and a half. Necroposting maybe, highjacking no...
