Myrtillocactus geometrizans Page 2

This is a Myrtillocactus offset, pictured first in Jan 2001 (left) and then in Dec 2001 (right). I am growing numerous examples of this species for grafting purposes. A large stock plant of a few feet in size can really boost the growth of grafted specimens.

Two specimens, being grown for grafting. Note the waxy bluish coating of new growth. Patterns or seasons of growth can usually be clearly seen on Myrtillocactus geometrizans.

This is the head of a Myrtillocactus geometrizans which was left over after a grafting operation. This specimen was about 1 feet tall. It was used as a stock plant for a Gymnocalycium baldianum graft. After grafting, the head can be potted up in soil and a new plant grown. In a year or two, the specimen will be ready for another grafting operation.
