Hi Tomasz

Look the post from the Date: Wednesday, 14-Nov-2007, 13:11:20

It`s the same Plant on the Pereskiopsis stock, a little bit younger!
The high when it begin to develop the cephalium was 40-50 cm.
Because Individual single flowers are on the stem too.

Hi Ciril

Thank you for all the information.

You also wrote:
"Is fertil with it self."

Did you sown the seed obtained from the self-fertilisation? I am curious if they germinated.

Cheers

Hi Marlon, a really great article you have written, I just found it on a google search of field number HU 1394

I bought a grafted plant called Arrojadoa multiflora hoffackveri HU1394 at the UK national show in 2008. I was looking for information as mine is about to flower. If i read your article right i should rename it as Micranthocereus hofackerianus HU1394


[quote=This result prompted me to transfer this plant to the genus Micranthocereus (Machado, 2006).][/quote]

No stem-tubers on my plant as it's grafted, do i need to mark the pot so it always faces the same direction?

i order some seed from CACTUS - HOBBY BRNO .
these are my seedling sown in 2017/6/9
germination start in a week later 6/16,in the end(6/22) i have 53 out of 80 seed.
i am happy with this score.

they grow slower then i except wondering why? . my green house is now 39~41 C in mid day 30~35 C in night.
pretty hot.

i keep these seedling in lower shelf so the light is softer and inside a humid box.

i also notice they barely have root,i seen no taproot as other cactus seedling would. wondering is that normal.
