Hi All,

I've got a couple of grafts on pereskiopsis stocks and also a few pereskiopsis that i haven't used for grafting yet. How do i look after them through the winter? I've withheld water like my other cactus and ungrafted lophos, but the leaves on the pereskiopsis are already starting to look really rough and the lophos grafted to pereskiopsis are going soft.

am i doing something wrong? should i be giving them some water or not? I'm keeping them at about 10 degree centegrade but they have minimal light.

<font color="0000ff">Just bring them inside and place them in a window unless you use a grow light indoors. They do fine indoors with enough light. I would continue to water as normal. Pere's need a lot of light.</font>

They don't like freezing whether, they went the same way as my salvia, with all the laves going mushy. Im hoping the stems will survive the winter, if not, oh well, I'll just have to get some new ones. Might being them inside if its possible.

I'm sure Peyote can cause I saw hundreds of them in the windows at a place in Holland, and it get's cold there. Just don't want them getting frosty. I know trichos need a lot of light and you have to keep them in the dark, when there are low light conditions, and water very little because they'll get skinny in sections, if you don't.
