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.
20190217_095623.jpg
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.

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.

Here's a question Boebs...........

It appears you have removed all the areoles off the graft stock on this one?

I have long considered champer cuts  like this to stop the efforts of the stock from trying to grow new side pups, and put all the energy into the grafted cutting. Is this the logic of what I see here?

 

You achieved a great fusing where they were joined originally, and the new pup looks great. If this was your intention with the areola removal, it appears to have been quite successful. 

I have abundances of San Pedro, and may be trying this come spring. It is very frustrating to achieve a successful graft, only to have a side pup push it off before it erupts through the skin.............................

 

(edit, I forgot to add the picture clarifying which graft....oops)

Yes, excactly what you think, on most cactus i remove the areoles down an inch or so, it does help force the growth where you want it, aka your scion. Also keeps the pups from pushing off your scion since they can not form.
I feel its bonsai cactus style lol,
Some grafters only notch out the areoles to save the skin for better photosynthesis. I dont feel its worth rth the time.

Boebs, I think someone is messing with you............... Not cool at all.

Your notice appears legit enough

I just checked on EBay and there are as of this morning plenty of listings for San Pedro and Bridgesii.

 

I went in as if I was going to buy one and there were no restrictions. The statement on your notice contains false info as to my knowledge, ebay has never restricted the sale of legal cactus. I will keep digging because this is concerning for its potential chain reaction effect. 

Please at least keep me updated on developments.
