I never bother callousing or drying the pereskiopsis cuttings. I always put them in dirt as soon as they are cut. I havent lost one yet. They are tough to kill, drying them out will kill them faster than anything ime. I believe they will be fine. Water once every two weeks sparingly or once a month with more water.

A friend sent me some and I planted, they did well. A few others I didn't plant I forgot about in a glass of water... a month later they rooted fine too...
I let the soil dry out almost completely before adding more water... remember it has cactus in it's blood so it likes a little drying out.

ime they don't like to dry out, they should root in time, unlike other cacti, they do like regular waterings.

Your cuttings don't look too bad, I have seen them drop all leaves before starting new growth.... Goodluck :)

They get the same watering schedule my MJ plants do... about twice a week, but I do let the soil dry. One is getting away from me...

UPDATE:
Thanks to everyone for all the advice so far.
I've made some adjustments and things seem to have stabilized.

I removed the cuttings from what I found to be soaking wet soil. I added in about 1/3 part Perlite to the existing cactus soil mix and allowed it to dry some for a day.
Then, I dipped the Pereskiopsis cuttings into Rootone rooting hormone and placed them about 1/2 to 1 in. into the soil, just deep enough that they stand in place.

Glad you are sorting things out zekesdream. Keep your cuts moist but not soaking wet until they root and start new growth, then let them dry slightly between waterings. The addition of perlite to your mix is wise imo.

i googled it and it seems that both are used for grafting. they look a lot alike and i think either would be ok for what you want to do.

He's probably a spathulata vendor trying to convert aspiring cactus grafters into beleiving in spathulata as 'the' Pereskiopsis to graft on... :mistrust: :crazy1: all I grafted on pereskiopsis were on velutina but I would like to see proof other than net-gossip on the matter that P.spathulata is any better than P.velutina as grafting stock...

A mistrusted spathulata vendor? :lol: :lol: :lol: well thats a new one :bow: Yep there is an abundance of evidence suggesting that. I don't see anyone saying one or the other is superior, net gossip? go figure :lol: :amazed:

I know spathulata works from experience. I havent tried any other varieties. Spathulata was also easy to find, and fairly cheap.

Yep, and it grows very fast, propagates easily and tolerates a variety of conditions.
