Looks great Burger. Those grafts are not only puffing up nicely, but they're showing maturity too. Huge tufts of hair coming from the 3'rd photo. I'd say that that's officially a job well done.

I do have a question for you though. Do you have a size limit, or time limit that you like to keep your grafts on their stalks? When do you decide its time to get those plants growing on their own roots?

Im as green as those beautifull cacti w/ envy. I wish I could boast such a garden, cacti facsinate me, at this point as something i know very little about. I hope very soon to be entranced even more so by a first hand experience with them. Nice work Burger!

I do have a question for you though. Do you have a size limit, or time limit that you like to keep your grafts on their stalks? When do you decide its time to get those plants growing on their own roots?


I don't have a set size or time limit.

They get degrafted when the scion growth has noticably slowed/stopped, or when the stock begins to deteriorate in health.

It has been my experience that Loph's don't really benifit from the Peres after approx. two years (at the most), and I have been degrafting them at approx. 14- 18 months of age.

The Loph grafts I have left for longer than this time are more susceptible to disease and orange rot, as the peres starts to rot inside the scion.

Degrafting should also be timed with growing seasons, so when they have been degrafted and have formed their own roots, they can go straight into a natural growing environment (outside) and continue to develop a healthy root system and adapt to sunlight, before winter arrives, increasing their chances of survival.

Very impressive Burger!
I'm curious...what's your preferred method for getting the Loph's to root? Or do you just regraph to a Pedro?
