Astrophytum coahuilense 'Kikko' Tubercle grafting
« on: Monday, 01 April 2013 - 17:46:07 »
Hi everybody,
Last summer I lost a nice Astrophytum coahuilense 'Kikko' from Japan. I grafted 3 tubercles on Ferocactus glaucescens. After a few months, one of the tubercles began to make offsets. Actually there are about 6-7 offsets, ready to regraft.

Hi Arioandi, I often see the fero grafts glaucescens in tubers, There is some special reason ? perhaps greater contact surface?

I don't know the reason, but it works good on Fero glaucescens.

Thank you all. It is a good way, to save a clone, even if the plant is rotten. Almost always you can save a part of the plant and graft it.
