Indeed 😁 There are very few reports on 24inches san pedro though. Guess I'll have to find out myself, maybe add a bridgesii to the mix?

As for cutting bottom and top for propogation, any tips?
 
They do look beautiful!

What are they supposedly? Looks like a bridge, a peruvianus and 2 pachanois?

(ps: this was posted in the mushrooms subforum so moved it here :D )

It's very easy. An inch thick slice from the bottom, maybe slightly thicker from the top. Use a razor blade if possible, or whatever blade you have that's absolutely the sharpest. Wait a couple of weeks for the cut surfaces to callus over (make sure you note/mark which is the original bottom surface - or plant on the side if you forget to do this!) Then it's a matter of standing your cuttings on a layer of fine to medium grit over free-draining compost and waiting until they decide to grow roots, and in the case of base cuttings pups as well. They enjoy a fine misting every so often.

Good luck!

Hi! Two are San Pedro, the other two are bridgesii. The bridgesii are very healthy, the san pedro are yellow.

Congrats Fran!

Best luck with them! :thumb_up:

Looks like you definitely caught the cactus bug. :d

Thanks Fox;) Do you think the picture above is a safe dose? 20" san pedro, 10" bridgesii.
 
Fran do you know anything about those San Pedros? They are Pachanoi? Its hard to say how strong it will be. If all 3 of those cuttings have good potency it should be a strong trip. Could be extremely strong.

Echinopsis pachanoi. I have no idea about them. I have to have faith because I am looking for a breakthrough experience...its a thin line. Its also possible that in the moment I drink them I'll be able to feel how strong it is. The bridgesii cutting is 8", the san papis are 8" each aswell. So I dont think its a dangerous dose if I were to consume it all.
 
Wait for the top and bottom cuts to callous over before you put them in soil. If you are in a humid climate it may not be a bad idea to sprinkle the cuts wtih cinnamon or sulfur to prevent rot. If you plant the bottom cuts sideways under the earth with some of the aeroles sticking up at the top of the soil you may get moar than one pup per cut. For future reference I usually prefer to take cuts in the 4-6" range as they generally are moar successful than the smaller cuts.

In any case, I'm sure they'll do fine for ya and you'll find much reward in this line of exploration. Are you planning to make tea or do an extraction?

It looks pretty good, although I'd have cut the slices half as thick - but that's just me (you should see my cucumber salad!)

Looks like you'll be feeling the love soon - put a bit extra in from me :love:
