The new plant and its dropped leaves in new conditions, the .t.m., p.m., and juuls inside the tent. Looking well the p.var. has recovered nicely and grown 3 nodes since putting it in the bag! Been a successful season this year

So it's been a while and I've made progress, I culled the hurd down to 45ish columnar cacti of 3 types, they are labeled on they're pots respectively. In regards to l.w. I had 25 seeds of 35 germinate of those 25 8 died along the way and in the last month I've lost 4, 3 just couldn't survive being taken out of the humid fish tank and I broke one but I didn't graft it in time so it turned brown on top of the othe cacti it was try to graft, leaving me with 13. Well here some photos too

Pereskiopsis loves light an it loves water, chances are that all of our pereskiopsis are clones. So even if we didn’t get it from the same vendor per say, we basically all have the same plant.... which is pretty cool.

Alright so with the arrival of the pereskiopsis I decided to start some more seeds, I want to try grafting.

I was lucky enough to be gifted a variety of columnar cacti seeds and about 50 l.w. seeds 9 months ago. At the time I was very anxious about this project and decided to only start enough seeds to give myself a large start but not all you know just as a back up. Well maybe a month ago I tried starting the remaining 15 l.w. seeds but I forgot a step.... I did not take into consideration that I had been gifted these seeds almost one year ago and I didn't soak the seeds overnight. I also reused the starting material from where I culled a majority of my cacti garden. So 2 mistakes over looked because I was upset at going from 25 l.w. down to 17..... man what a blow.
Here I have remembered to soak my seeds 24 hours and I made sure they dropped before starting. I also am using fresh sand. I only have 10 pereskiopsis to start and it's going to take a while to get roots and clones of pereskiopsis but I am going to try.

Does anyone think these are elongated? And if so do I top off with sand or put closer to the light? Also I've had these in the top corner of my grow tent to get the most heat with less direct light should I put these under my lights and with my lights on 12/12 will it be to much light? I have a power strip in my tent so plugging in a softer light and setting a timer for a shorter time isn't an issue.

They do not look to be reaching to me. They look pretty good actually.

I never soak cactus seeds myself, I just figure it will take a few days more to germinate. I also re-use germinating material, but I will sterilize it first.

 

If you want to try the lighting in the stronger area, just watch extra close the first day and for a few after. Any sign of reddening or sunburn warrants moving to lower light again, or providing some screening.

If they look good to you then I dont think I'll change what I'm doing. They have grown a lot in 6 weeks and I want to continue that growth so as long as they aren't reaching for light I should probably leave well enough alone for now

I have an example of why these are etoliated at home, I have two setsof the same variety of lw. One set was grown in substandard light and look a lot like what you have(. They are defiantly getting enough light to grow but they don’t look like lw grown in optimal lighting.

Allthough your lw are slightly etoliated this isn’t a bad thing especially since you are getting into grafting, I like useing etoliated lw’s for grafting as you can get multiple grafts from one plant if done properly.

I’ll put some pictures up after I get off work.

I was seeing top and bottom grafts from meyer's page a few years ago does grafting the root end of an l.w. grow out to be a normal plant?

 does grafting the root end of an l.w. grow out to be a normal plant?

If it takes, it will be more likely to produce side growth, which will eventually orient itself normally.
