graft:why, how to, problems rootstock and mad scientist work!
« on: Saturday, 24 December 2011 - 18:24:19 »
this tread is a call for you guys that obviusly dont grow eerithing from seeds to adult plants, i hope to see your work, your results, your how to report.
my 20 cents are about how o use cianoacrilic glue.
i use this glue to graft little scions like 1 year old seedling on big rootstoc like mirtillocactus or harisia jusbertyin the 20to 40 cm dimension avoiding the use of elastic fixture, usually they are hard to fix securely but using the superglue and just puscing it for some  seconds over the frescly cut stock it are securely fixed and  the graft heal in les time giving you no problem of scion jumping around flipped by the elastic  fixture!

Good morning cortona!

I also have graft little seedlings on big stocks, a make this with rubber!
I know the problems, it`s hard to fix the little seedlings on the big stock, but it goes.
You can also take tape to fix it, but there I didn`t have any experience!

I will show you a little graft from Discocactus hartmanni, I seeded it last year in spring!

Two months after the grafting 2010 (graftingstock is a big T. schickendantzii):
-sorry for the bad old pictures-





A year later it`s a nice plant (pictures from spring 2011):

The first plant is the latest ;)

hello! we had some problems in rooting harrisia hybrid, any tips?
Because we have some plants grafted on high stocks but cutting them it's a bit risky...and postponed to next spring of course...
seedlings of this stock do not have this kind of problem.

Do anyone know where to find Pereskiopsis seeds? I don't have any access to adult plants and can't find any seeds to grow them neither (Kohres doesn't have them).

I've never seen seeds available commercially. Pereskiopsis is mainly propagated through cuttings since they rarely flower (at least outside their natural habitat)
