Poorly Gymno

Post by Chris L » Mon May 10, 2021 4:59 pm

This poorly Gymno seems to have become very dehydrated. It has of course lost its roots.

I think this is one to try leaving to soak in a tub of water for a day to see if it wll absorb water that way.

I havebeen trying to get an intertextum to reroot for nearly a year. I'm on my final attempt ... decapitation plus rooting powder.
Endeavouring to grow Aeoniums, Aylostera, Echinocereus, Echinopsis, Gymnocalycium, Lithops, Matucana, Rebutia, and Sulcorebutia.
Currently being wooed by Haworthia, attempting hybridisation, and enticed by Mesembs.

Looking at these stunted roots I wonder whether there might be a fungus or mites causing the malformation.
