Onzukas, especially the three-ribbed ones, are among my best beloved cacti at all. Aren't they beautiful?  :)








Some days ago, namely on the 29th of July, I sowed some astro seeds and among others, also of the three-ribbed Onzuka. The seeds sprouted very quickly, the very first seedling appeared already next day.


I used to graft very young seedlings on to the Pereskiopsis:


This time, I tried to make a 'microgreenhouse' from the budding tape. If this works, the grafting would be faster and much easier, there will be no need to root the Pereskiopsis cuttings or even to use the cuttings at all...

Great plants. Keep us updated on how the micro greenhouse works!

Thanks for compliments! It may happen that I sell or swap Onzuka tricostatum seeds next year -but this year's crop is sowed already, only a couple of hybrid fruits are ripening right how  and I'm going to sow these seeds as well... Sorry!
