a small one with buds:


Beautiful plant, we hope the weather stays for a nice bloom.

I have tried to increase the quantity of A. maruibo (Daruma seiji).
The photo is 2 years old degrafted ones, sown seeds on 3rd September 2011.
Some of them were in flower last autumn.



Beautiful plants Frank, the growth they have done in 2 years is amazing!
That the cultivation method you use? I live in northern Italy and following the natural growth of plants I think it takes me twice as long to get plants as well :(

G'morning Carlo

The method of maruibo on the photo was:

1. Grafted 40 days old seedlings onto Pereskiopsis stocks in spring
2. kept the scion with stock in organic base pottingmix with an organic fertilizer
3. Loosing all leaves of Pereskiopsis in 2nd winter in here and you can not expect further good growing
4. Degrafted with a short Pereskiopsis sticks, 15 mm in spring when the scion was 2 years old
5. Roots will come from the stock initially and the scion relies on the stock a while.
    Maruibos on the attached photo are the situation of item 5.
6. Since Pereskiopsis is not a permanent stock, it will die eventually but before that roots come out from the scion and switch over
7. Prerskiopsis will die in 2~3 years. Roots coming out from the scion are fine roots, not a taproot.

Good morning Frank,
 Thank you very much for the very clear explanation of the method that you use.
I'll definitely try next year.
I know that you used it with retusus CV. that is the most easily to emit roots in the family Ariocarpus.
I know that the sp fissuratus are harder to put down roots, have experience of these?

G'morning Carlo

Fissuratus related SP are difficult to do a normal degrafting.
When you cut a part of body, liquid comes out continuously and is hard to stop.
It will rot out as the result.

Japanese use a special degrafting method for fissuratus SP named "Zuituki Orishi".
You have to select the grafting stock at first. It should be a Hylocereus.
When the scion grown large enough possibly in 3~4 years, degraft with a short stock around 20 mm.
Remove all soft tissue and remained vascular bundle only.
You have to set it up immediately for rooting without drying.
The top-dressing of pottingmix should be rooting medium to consider roots coming out from the scion in future.
In this method, you are not necessary to cut any parts of the scion.
zui: vascular bundle
tuki: attached
oroshi: degrafting
This method utilizes the characteristic of non- permanent stock as same as Pereskiopsis.
Roots will come out from the vascular bundle initially and switched over to the scion later.
I believe you can use pereskiopsis stock also.

I did Hylocereus Zuituki oroshi for fissuratus, lloydii and intermedius with successful result.

Good morning Frank.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us!
I use peresk for no permanent stok, so I'll try with these.
Years ago I bought some big plants Aztekium hintonii, which were grown by this method that thou hast described.
Now I'm past 4 or 5 years since they were potted low and the roots of Hylo. are still active.
I hope sooner or later to see the roots of Aztekium, but it must be very difficult and slow to take root.
It takes a lot of patience!

It is now flowering season of Ariocarpus in here.
The photo is a degrafted one.

Since cacti have grown and pushed pot out, I repotted them into larger pots.
I posted them on 13th October 2013, same ones.
