Identification / Bitter Girl
« Last post by Inyan on May 16, 2018, 10:11:16 AM »
I might have named this one fat bottom girl as she was the fattest fastest grower out of this particular cross for me. However...

Alright my friends, you know how many people lick their fingers and turn the pages of a book... liking their fingers each time? Yeah, kind of gross.

Well, I have this habit of licking my cacti seedlings every time I cut one to propagate them. Suffice it to say I have never tasted a seedling in my cacti bed this Bitter in the past 2 years. With that being said, I have settled on Bitter Girl for this sweet gem. I will be offering this one very soon and propagating her like made. Suffice it to say Bitter Girl has back and she can do side bends or sit-ups, but she better not loose that attitude. Bitter Girl has bite!

Cultivation / Re: Pereskiopsis spacing / how many per square foot?
« Last post by Inyan on May 07, 2018, 09:41:37 AM »
Just my thoughts a day late and a dollar short here, but I try not to let the leaves of my cacti or plants touch and definitely don't allow my plants to shadow each other if I am trying to optimize growth. The reason for this is that chlorophyl requires light to produce energy for the plant. The more overcrowded you have them the slower the growth can be. Similarly, the more root space a plant has the faster it tends to grow. Some plants actually produce inhibitors to slow the growth of those plants that encroach upon them. A good rule of thumb, for me at least, is to space my cacti at least far enough apart that the Pereskiopsis leaves just barely touch so that none of their leaves block the sun to another Pereskiopsis or grafted cacti underneath them.
