Has anyone tried aeroponics with cacti?

Ive got a dozen monstrose laying around waiting to be potted and I've been misting the roots to keep em limber.

I'm wondering with cactis low need for nutes, would they grow like this?

Has anyone tried?

Right now I'm at kinda a stand still; have about 60-80ish bridge seedlings (can't get a good count, foggy brained) and 4 sand pedros thatr'e a few inches tall and 13 monstrose that are waiting to be potted. Was gunna put them under lights for the winter/fall but after some research I think they'll be alright in my bay windows; who needs a kitchen table to eat on :P

I will take pix when i have a camera, working on some other stuff right now like getting rid of this old (atleast a decade when we bought the house) carpet that is surely what's destroying my lungs and getting some seeds together and lights for indoor lophs.

Will start a thread when I have time and camera. You have a thread on the aeorponics?

just got back froma week vacation. left my brridge seedling by the window, they never got misted as they were supposed to be so when i got back alotof em were birght red almost pink and somekind of dark looking but it doesnt look like ive lost any.

as i suspected the lack of water made them unfit to be in the bright sun as theyve always been by the birghter part of the table but were being misted a few times a day. so i brought them back to darker part of the table and have misted a few times and they look like theyll be fine, theyve grown some too.itll give em character.

got another big almost 3 foot tall bridgesii very well rooted. that was potted abuot 1-3 days before i left and now it has a few of those black spots near the top. im starting to think those are being caused by something elseother than to much water as this bridge was healthy and the soil it was potted in was just a little moist as the soil is alot of the time when u get it at the store. all of my cacti are in a mix of sand perlite and shpagnum peat moss. I try to get the mixture more or less uniform for all my cacti with a little bit more perllite and a little less sand. tops are covered with sand for aesthetics, to discourage parasitic flies and to help hold them in place as i dont want anything wet touching green parts of the cacti.

I've still been looking for loph seeds but im not in a hurry to get much more; i have stuff i need to get in order before i can really crack down on the cacti.  Most of the carpet is gone and my lungs and brain are startting to hit an upswing. also trying to let some relationships fall by the way side without making to many more enemies here.

glad to hear the flies are starting to retreat at work

The seedling are fine now and will be getting peres to graft to soon. Also alot more seeds on the way. going to cut a piece off my crested pachanoi and graft to a very well eslablished bridge stump.

I'm wondering about LEDs,I see all these peoplesaying you'll need to spend alot but I fot a 60 "piece" red and blue led that crews into a regular socket. I'm guessing that is 6o watts; I thinkmost pieces are 3 or 5 watts but 180 watts seemsti high (if they were 3 watts a diode in each piece) These were under 5 bucks and i should be able to source more so I'm thinking that might work.

Anys ideas ont the LED thing? Still trying to procure loph seeds; my triches are inmy bay south facing window

sprac , your gonna need way more light than that.
no matter what your gonna need 30-50W sq ft. @ 1 foot.
thats your target, study specs on lights..
google research on makes, models, and LED chips will yield info galore.
done right, youll need sunglasses.
always show caution with power LED.
keep your face out of them , and wear blue block sunglasses / safety glasses


im giving paperjack a chance to catch up on his thread.....

welcome deaths angel.........


im always watching peeps.
just been hyper busy.
the maid is actually running the farm lately.

combo of club and building new studio killing me.

stay tuned though.

jappy turkeyday and post turkeyday capitalism day anne and all

procuredsome loph seedbut could use more of course

i was thinkging of tryinthe "tajeaway tek" if youve heard of that or just open air but this time wash my sand with l bleach and the h202 first and leave opena air and mist with distilled water ina cleanarea,,, not sure why my lophs died last time but burde are still doing fine

imalso wondering if gibberallic acid soak would help germrates,maybe will try 15 with soak and 15 without

the led i have seemslike you should have glasses on to go near;my gut tells me 8 of those would be atleaest enought for a sqft once theyre really growing,need ti get peres and leaern how to graft, have a smallloph button i might try to graft using the stab method with apsilocereus for scion one that cerus has good roots

will be trying the crested pach to bridge graft soon

hvae a bunch of papaver somniferum seeds to start learning to germand grow soon ;)

then i have my5hostilis seeds and hoepfully soon moretotrygerming again; also looking into acuminatas

tried a dry tek on some cacti in the middlefo that still;will post reults and get an updated growlog etc going soon oncei have some courrt/jail problems out of the way, trip to peru and get out of the states may be in order

thats about all im working on now,wish i had full lab and more money to play with

muchlove
