Grafted Cacti

I am not a professional nor an expert in Cactacea taxonomy. Any help with ID and spelling are always welcome. These are the plants offered for sale. To up-date my list I've been using many books, journals, catalogs and other web-sites. It's been helpful, but I have more work to do. I only ship to the main 48 States. I do ship in the winter. I have 72+ hour heat packs for $3.00 each. No international shipping. Please read the front page for ordering information.

Aztekium ritteri graft (Aztekium ritteri are extremely slow growth on their own roots. It usually takes several years for growth to be even noticeable. I find if they a grafted they will make a nice showy clump in a few years. These Aztekium ritteri are grafted on Myrtillocactus geometrizans is commonly used as under stocks for grafting cacti, which is considered good. It's very easy to grow and is an excellent stock for small globular cacti that tend to rot off on their own roots and for slower growth seedlings such as Aztekium that do not graft very well onto Trichocereus spachianus. The grafting stock Myrtillocactus geometrizans is a generally a better choice for cuttings of Aztekium ritteri. If exposed to temperatures below freezing or they may die, nevertheless it is a good advice never let the night times temperatures fall below 50f. Water regularly in summer but allow to dry fully before watering again. Need a well-drained soil mix with small gravel added to ensure drainage.. During the winter months they should be rather kept dry and water is restricted to only enough to keep the stems and branches from shriveling. Since they are big sized plants need plenty of space for their roots even when it's been used for a graft stock. My grafts are make by one of my best friends Mike Keeling. I re-pot when it looks like the roots are crowded in their pots. All my grafts are grown in my greenhouse witch has very bright light. All of these are growing in a 3 inch pot.)

   Aztekium valdezii (Is a tiny e cactus species just about 2-6 cm tall in habitat, the plants are star-shaped when viewed from above simple or branched from the base. When blooming, a single nine-petal flower, white in the centre changing to bright magenta on the outside, tops off each plant. Aztekium valdezii is the third species of Aztekium in the family of cacti. The species name is given in honor of Biol. Mario Alberto Valdéz Marroquín who discovered the plannt in the state of Nuevo Leon in 2012. Growing in 3 inch pots.)

Astrophytum myriostigma 'Onzuka' crest/monstrose (It forms large low clusters of white textured monstrous and crested stems, and the plant looks more like some non-cactus succulent than a cactus. These plants show different crested and monstrous shapes. The cause of monstrosity and cristation: The cause of anomalous form of growth is not fully explained.  Biologists disagree as to why some Astrophytum grow in this unusual form. Some speculate that it is a genetic mutation. Others say it is the result of a lightning strike or freeze damage, but whatever the stimulus, the growth point of the stem has switched from a geometric point, to a line, which folds and undulates as the crest expands.  Though these crested cacti are somewhat rare (1 in 50,000 or less), cresting occurs naturally and can be encountered in many other cactus species. Growing in 3 inch pots.)

     Astrophytum myriostigma var. columnare cv.minima (cv. HUBOKI)(The stems and lateral branches are finger like1,5-2,5 cm in diameter, up to12 cm tall with bands of white spots. It produces also many tiny flower buds in summer which usually abort and soon fall down. This cultivar tends to be slower  growing. Don'tconfound HOBOKI with HUBUKI! "HUBUKI" and "HUBOKI" are two very similar cultivars both in the name and in the general appearance, but not the same plant! HUBOKI has white dots that condense at evenly-spaced intervals on the epidermis forming a cloud like decorative design, whilst the dots of HUBUKI are spaced in a more uniform manner. Growing in 3 inch pot.) 1 @ $18.00  Sold

 Cephalocereus senilis crest graft (The standard columnar Cephalocereus senilis (commonly known as the old man cactus) is very popular and widely grown for its woolly appearance, but this beautiful crested form is still rare in cactus collection. Grafted onto Myrtillocactus geometrizans. The most striking feature is the long, greyish-white hairs it possesses, which serve to protect it from the harsh sun common to its native habitat in eastern Hidalgo, Mexico. More precisely the long white hairs are actually long bristles that benefit the plant by reducing sun exposure and by trapping a layer of air next to the cactus body. This helps to cool the plant in the summer and keep it warm in the winter. The coat of hair makes many plants appear almost snow-white (however, the hairs conceal numerous sharp yellow spines). My grafts are make by one of my best friends Mike Keeling. I re-pot when it looks like the roots are crowded in their pots. All my grafts are grown in my greenhouse witch has very bright light. All of these are growing in a 3 inch pots.)

Ortegocactus macdougallii graft A (Ortegocactus macdougalli grows in an escarped limestone stone rock top, practically deprived of trees and scrubs, at a height of 2000 meters in Mexico (Oaxaca) , San Jose Lachuguiri, in a small practically inaccessible zone. Not the easiest of plants to grow well and tricky to grow when on its own roots, this interesting and distinctive looking plant needs a little care with regard to heat and water. It show a distinct intolerance to over watering either by rotting off, or by bursting of the epidermis. Composts should therefore be very open and gritty, use shallow pots, with good drainage. A harmless but unsightly orange discoloration (corkiness) is common at the base of the stems, though this is not due to disease, and apparently is unavoidable, cautious examination should periodically be undertaken to ensure that rot has not set in Re-rooting is not easy. My grafts are make by one of my best friends Mike Keeling. These plant is grafted on Lemaireocereus pruinosus. I re-pot when it looks like the roots are crowded in their pots. All my grafts are grown in my greenhouse witch has very bright light.)

 Toumeya papyracanthus (Found growing in Arizona (Southern portion of Navajo County, Apache County)  New Mexico (southeast Rio Arriba County and McKinley County to Grant and Dona Ana counties) Texas (Hudspeth County) Colorado and Mexico. It's inconspicuous and probably irregular in occurrence; it may be more widespread than presently known. Grows in open flats in pinyon-juniper woodlands, great Plains grassland, and Chihuahuan Desert grassland. At an elevation of 1500 - 2300 m. Restricted to fine, sandy clay loams and red sandy soils; rarely gypseous; often on highly erodable sites. It is almost always found associated in or near tufts or fairy rings of blue grama grass (Bouteloua gracilis) where it is seldom seen thanks to its excellent camouflage because the papery spines resemble dried grass leaves. Touneya papyracantha demonstrate the importance of microclimate variation for cactus growth, in fact this plant depends upon the favourable microclimate provided by grama grass to survive. Germination can take several years, so keep pot and try again next year. Seedlings do not do well either, and some die each year, for this reason plants are commonly grafted. This one is grafted to Lemaireocereus pruinosus. In this case they are easy to grow and no special skill is required. My grafts are make by one of my best friends Mike Keeling. I re-pot when it looks like the roots are crowded in their pots. All my grafts are grown in my greenhouse witch has very bright light. All of these are growing in a 3 inch pots.)
