charlpic wrote:Good deduction arjen, Pereskiopsis => more plants soon , on my first reading of "Grown from seed" and "Grafting" sections, I was impressed by seedling grafting. Since I didn't have any grafting stock, I tried to find some Pereskiopsis.
I couldn't find any canadian seller nor a US nursery that would ship to Canada. Those Pereskiopsis were gladly obtained from a canadian member of this forum.
I now have sowed around 50 seeds from a "cactus seeds surprise mix" and about the same amount of what some of you guys thought to be Mammillaria Haselbergii ? It had already flowered when I bought it and there was some fruits so I figured I had nothing to loose trying to sow them. I'm using the baggy method... that will probably worth another post when they sprout (If they ever do).
Many of you mentioned that being on this forum, seeing plants and experiments will only have you wanting more plants. And this is kind of true... I feel it, only after a few weeks. But there is this "thing" called girlfriend that will make sure they don't take over all the windowsills and balcony.
My next big challenge will be to give those fellas a proper dormancy this winter. That might not be easy in an apartment without a cold basement or a heated garage. Between outdoor peaks at -25c and indoor comfort, I still have to find some room I'll be able to drop around 10-12c.
