A scion, Ariocarpus (lloydii x godzilla) x godzilla has pushed a flowering bud up.
Since it is winter, the bud will not open.

Updated photo of Ariocarpus fissuratus cv godzilla
Scions are around 7~8 cm in diameter.
They will be degrafted in September this year.

excuse my ignorance, but how are the seedlings held in place until the graft takes?
Thanks

I think he just places the scion on the stock. Pereskiopsis sap is sticky and you don't need pressure unlike many stocks. You just have to keep them in humidity until the graft fuses

I personally have had no luck with this method and use parafilm to cover the graft before it's fused. It's the same idea; it keeps it humid

G'morning Mike,
excuse my ignorance, but how are the seedlings held in place until the graft takes?
As Shane described, a scion is placed on Pereskiopsis stock and kept in a humidity box.
I use new Pereskiopsis off-shoots as stocks and scions are grafted on unrooted stocks.
Rooting stock and grafting scion run together and complete in 10 days.

Since very small seedlings are used as scions, it is not necessary the compensation of scion shrinkage which is a pressuer on the scion.

Same method can be used for stocks of Hylocereus undatus and Harrisia jusbertii.

hi hanazono thanks for all this very useful information, i want to know how you keep the leaves from falling off?

And if the leaves are all off, what should I do if the scion is still small enough

G'morning aditgege,
i want to know how you keep the leaves from falling off?

And if the leaves are all off, what should I do if the scion is still small enough
When water in soil was not enogh, leaves of Pereskiopsis are fallen off.
I try to keep wet the potting-mix for Pereskiopsis but it is not easy in mid of winter.
Pereskiopsis loose leaves in winter of 2nd year after the grafting in my place.

If the scion was more than 3 cm in diameter, the rooting after degrafted is not difficult.
You have to keep the scion until to reach the size even if the stock lost leaves.

G'day kaktus.idn,
may i ask you about temp and lumen inside your gh when the plant is flowering ?
It's look like your plant is thriving and make flower every season , do you have some plant that hard to flowering ?
There are two types of cacti. One is in flower in spring and the other is in flower in autumn.
These two are in flower with different temp and lumen but they are in flower around 30 'C and 1500~2000 lumens.

I have both cacti, in flower in spring and in autumn.
They are also in flower early spering/ late spring and early autumn/ late autumn.
I just can not see flowers in July which is mid of winter in here.

I do not have any caci which are hard to be in flower.
I assume you live in a tropical place. Some spring flowering species is hard to be in flower without winter climate.
You should make a winter by stopping watering which is a simulated climate of winter.

Yess I live in tropical place, tempt in my greenhouse is now around 45-50° when mid day and 25-30 in night day ,
Maybe it's not good for CAM proses ?
should I cover them with another nett shading ? But I worry the lumen will drop and make some cacti etiolated
Or maybe i just put some fan / ventilator in my greenhouse ?
Btw astrophytum and some mammillaria flowering well in here, the problem is in some gymnocalycium species
