Re: Pediocactus knowltonii grafted on Pereskiopsis

Thanks, Alan and Diane. I think I'll wait until spring and see what happens. If I manage to get the plant(s) through winter I might get the scalpel out then. If I'm brave enough!

Re: Pediocactus knowltonii grafted on Pereskiopsis

I've just taken over as Secretary of the Luton Branch. I hope I won't let them down!

Re: Pediocactus knowltonii grafted on Pereskiopsis

Thanks for the advice, Juster. I have potted up the plant in a compost suitable for the pereskiopsis, but I haven't watered it yet. The plant is now in my greenhouse enjoying some sunshine. I have positioned it near the door, furthest away from the heater, so hopefully both halves will be happy.

Pediocactus knowltonii grafted on Pereskiopsis

I have recently returned to the hobby after an absence of about 20 years, so have forgotten quite a bit. I am amazed at the number of new discoveries. I decided to have a go at something a bit difficult, so I bought a Pediocactus knowltonii which is grafted onto a Pereskiopsis spathula. Now I find t...
