Trichocereus

Post by Roots »

I’ve done some grafting, put a few Lophs on San Pedro in the past.....For ornamental plants I don’t like the looks of grafted cactus and for medicinal plants they grow too quick for alkaloid production.....On that variegated crest you posted in the picture above there is enough green to grow on its own roots but it will be much slower than a non variegated crest.

What I’m more into right now is grafting stone fruits and apple trees....I have two cherry trees with four types of cherries, a plout with four pluots, a mixed stone fruit with a peach, nectarine and apricot and a 4 in 1 apple.....next year after I prune them I’m going to add more if I can find some good spots to add to.

The label up there “PC” is probably the root stock used in 90% of these grafts....I don’t live in a place where I can grow a stand outside so even the rootstock can take time to grow....I can grow a good root stock called golden torch but those grafts even look dumber than the ones in the pic.

Not my pic.

Thinking they will grow three times faster than their ungrafted siblings.

Here we are a few months later, the power of the rootstock is clearly visible.
