Grafting / Re: Grafting a Pennies worth of seedlings

Very small....

I think I am going to go do a graft right now... I really need a good straight razor though... Pretty sure using the knife I've been using has lead to some infections...

So maybe I will walk to the store first and then graft tonight...

Seriously, these scions are almost the same size as the lettering on this penny. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IQKwj8j8-ZU&feature=youtu.be

Good to see you Sprac.

As for getting things rolling... how about a seedling just 15 days old from sprouting.

Nice collection S, now if you can just get those oscars grafted your going to have a boat load of mutants.

Hey,

Just thought I'd update this.. These pictures were from a few years ago when i was living in Virginia.. As I'm sure you can tell by reading my old posts I wasn't doing too well back then.... I ended up having to leave my house abruptly and left all my cacti to one of my neighbors ... I haven't heard from him (although I haven't put a lot of effort into contacting him) since then... So hopefully the cactus were given a good home...

Anyways, now it's been a few years and I am more or less starting over. I have a good handful of trichcereus hybrids germinating and seedlings germinated, a few "pure" species germinating and a handful of bigger seedlings and small cacti that were gifted to me. In fact the majority of my seeds and cacti have been either given to me as gifts or at a  very low price from members of this forum and other similar forums...  It is very much appreciated and hopefully I will have enough to share by next season...

I will take some pictures and upload them later today... Right now I am just as broke as I was years ago so my main focus is to try and get a job or some steady form of income so I won't have to worry about expenses so much that should really be benign,,,, Once I have a bit of money my idea is to get an LED light to augment the lighting in the winter time .... I know people say you can't grow trichocereus under an LED but maybe with some natural light from the window and an LED they will grow... Also I plan on having other cacti growing that will be able to grow ok under and LED... Think halonium style...

Ok everyone, sorry for the long winded post.... Let's get this forum rolling again!

I didn't start this from seed myself....

But I wanted to keep a log of how it's going.... It has developed 2 new sets of areoles since it entered my greenhouse about 3 or 4 weeks ago...

Hey,

Haven't posted on this forum in years....

Just wanted to say ; these things look amazing! Very very nice. I am keeping my ear to the ground to get some astrophora hybrid seeds as soon as possible... The things look beautiful !

Good to be on here again; maybe we can get things rolling on here... This site has alot of potential.

Hope everyone is doing good.

Datura inoxia is often sold as Datura wrightii so it is hard to find a good source. My seed was collected in the wild and I continue to grow Datura wrightii pure species.

Datura discolor is another beautiful Datura I have sourced from the wild that I continue to grow.

As for the hybrid seed I have created, I have traded some individuals seeds from that hybrid and still have some seed as well. If you have your own plants, the cross is easy enough to make.
