My Lophophora adventure
« on: November 04, 2015, 06:44:33 AM »
Hello all!

I have two 1.5-2cm big lophophora williamsii and a bunch of pereskiopsis grafting stock. I would like to attempt Anne's hydrophora tek, and the first step towards it is grafting the loph to the pere. I drew a simple graph showing my plan. Can you guys confirm if it will work? Also, is it OK if the scion is slightly bigger than the stock's thickness?

ok ya have the basics.......
lemme think for a minit, as i just woke up.

then ill walk ya thru this,
and maybe in 3-4 months youll have a small forest.

step one, show me your work area for graft surgery and tools.
step 2 , get some larger pots for the peres.
step 3 tell me about your lights/ grow area,
step 4 , what kinda hydro containers are you thinking of?

planning is esssential.
once they start growing it moves FAST.
youll wanna run with it without slow downs.

this thread is a prime opportunity
 to demo how anyone with determination, can grow an entire phorest in a season!


dont cut anything til we discuss this more..............

ok lets touch on basics first.......

observe the pics.

first ones from the original HTTL teks

then some tools ( use safety glasses)

and then some charts........for future reference thru this thread.

ill go down the list for peres ,grafting. lights, nutes, and handling.
lets give paper a chance to catch up.

this is actually a multi part thing.
part is growing peres, part is growing lophs, part is growing both together in hydro.

next post, a fast " pereskiopsis 101"............

awesome.  that clears things up as for nutrient concentration and water levels!  thanks anne!  i see why adjustments must be made very slow.  as you're waiting weeks for feedback.  probably best for me to start with three slightly different concentrations for three sample groups and learn to spot the subtle changes.  good luck sprac!  post some pics!
