Ariocarpus trigonus seedling graft acting weird.
« on: Wednesday, 19 February 2014 - 08:32:13 »
So. I started this one a while back. It's an A. trigonus. I wanted to see what you all think about this. I cracked it up to it being on a graft as to why it's pupping like mad like this.  It first started off by pupping out of one of the early tubercles.  Then i realized it had pectinate spines kind of like the A. retusus pectinatus.  Then it started pupping out of every spot possible. It's even had new areoles pop up in seemingly clear spots where no sign of areoles and pupping out of them.  Here are some pictures.

Think it's a freak or just forced growth? Also, if this is a bad place for this thread feel free to move it. I'm a noob around here.

Hi Lophophan,
Nice Little ario you have there!
I believe that the strange growth is caused by the pereskiopsis stock. I often see this when I graft on pereskiopsis. Eventually it will slow down and start to grow more normal.

I'd second that. I also have a few arois growing weird on peres stock, some even develop pups from areole's tip.

Yeah, this one has been doing that AnTTun. 

Thanks you guys, I thought it was forced growth as well.  I wish they didn't grow so funky on pereskiopsis stock.

Hey, don't complain, now you have more offsets to graft on some other stock :)

Hi folks! this is my first post and I thought i'd share one of mine that did something similar... this one
looked more like colorful chimeras out of the base but then turned into regular heads.. no tubercle sprouts tho...
this is supposed to be Ariocarpus Restusus Confusus, but my Fissuratus from the same vendor haven't grown fissures
so I guess time will tell...

but anyways I really like this one, its the only one that did this and I grafted half a dozen of them...
it took forever to pump like well over a month and then grew super slow for another month... I thought it might be a chimera or some root growth at first because of the weird way they sprout out of the base eh...
