All i know about grafting is, you have to line the rings up, and make sure its very sappy.

Not much help am i Razz

Grafting seedlings to Pereskiopsis I would imagine that Ario would be the same, I am going to try some seedling grafting this spring...

Thanks San Rainbow & betty - thats a good write up. I have pretty good results with Lophophora and Trichocereus using the same method as in the links.

I was just wondering if arios were any different? and the finer details - for example - how old are the seedlings, keep in 79 % humidity for ...xx days at 14.6 degrees C etc.

cheers Smile

I have had really good sucess rates with Fissuratus, Kotsch and retusus. I grafted 2 of each in april and all were sucessful. I lost one of the retusus to orange rot but the others are growing strong.

I have a few little tips. I found arios easier to graft if they are a little older. I usually graft seedlings but I found the arios easier if they were 4ish weeks old. No pressure just a little sap from a cut pere leave. Humidity needs to be constant and not above 80% for a period of 14+ days.

Hey WT at what point do your fail ? How long can you sucessfully keep them alive ? I may have a tip or 2 for ya.

Hmm..... Mine have failed when transferred to the growing area. - After about 10 days in humidity and low light at ambient temp. I think next time I should give them longer in humidity (14 +) and possibly leave them until a bit older before grafting - all were young seedlings of about 2 weeks.

Cheers

Yeah well you almost have it sorted. I do 2 things to ensure their survival. You need to do what I think of as a mini hardening off. I lower the humidity in the grafted plants environment by 20% for a few days before I take them out. You can achieve this in a variety of ways it all depends on how your set up works.

Also some plants will begin to fatten up and look really full/turgid once this happens they are ready to be moved. Not all plants will do this and these are the onces I mini harden.

My set up is pretty ghetto but it works so I'm sticking with it Smile
