One bridgesii seedling cut into 5 parts, grafted onto a spineless opuntia.

This seedling had been badly sunburnt and wasnt growing anywhere near as much as his comrades.
The way i look at it, even if i only get one to take, i still have the same number of cactus, but now accelerated growth rates!

Sorry if i am getting annoying with my cactus post.
I just know information is usaly far and few on alot of long term upkeeps on trichocereus grafts.

It is wild how different these two bridgesii seeds are turning out.

This one has all spines bending more like a terscheckii,

20190217_095615.jpg
This one seems to be keeping long very straight spines.

20190217_095603.jpg
Both were sold to me simply as trichocereus bridgesii seeds in the same batch.

Nice Boebs !!!

Thank you for the progress show on the tricho grafts. My seeds on most anything seem to always show some genetic differences. I am curious on the new graft, cut into 5 parts, do you leave the thread on for very long? I have only used rubber bands to hold a graft until it sets.

Please do continue the posts, not annoying at all. I know nothing of cactus, so seldom comment, but I am absorbing the knowledge. Thank you!

I leave the thread on for 3-7 days just like rubber bands.
I just like the idea of being able to easily adjust the pressure and spread out the tension more evenly.

Have to love the old ways sometimes.

Thank you, i picked this site over others to share what i know because this site helped me threw alot years ago.
Mushrooms really helped me find who i was, this site helped me stay safe with proper knowledge and help with identifying and different teks. I very soon have a wild craving for a wild feild tripp with an old friend. I think i may document it the camping/hike collection tripp on here, mid to late summer.

Trichocereus bridgesii graft,
This was a successful experiment of the thinnest cutting i could take off a very sought after clone.
It had 3 very strong areoles, about 3/4" thick.

Seems to be enjoying life.
