    Petiolaris complex plants - manual division

    Here is what I've done to D. broomensis and D. ordensis. Next, I will do the same for the rest of the species I am growing at the moment.

    Please send over the seasons' blessings for these!!! Particularly for the furry ones.

    D. broomensis


    D. ordensis

    A bold move, in my book, but you totally have my blessings and best wishes on them. I'd bet they will do well.

    I just put my paradoxa, which was in LFS, on top of a sand/peat mix. I've been told by an Australian hobbyist that Petiolaris Complex don't do well in totally organic media.

    Hi pokie, please share your conditions. AFAIK, the culture media should to be kept 75F and below so as to minimise the rapid growth of microbes. Meanwhile, my conditions at the balcony is >75F year round.

    Hello,

    1/3MS media 5.7, 3% sucrose, with a 0.5mg kinetin in that jar. I am still experimenting on these, which happen to be ordensis. The jars are at a constant 30C. The little ones are from seed, not explant material.

    When I split my lanata into quarters I kept them in my standard petiolaris growing conditions. So very warm and very wet. Tank gets up into the 100F range. Didn't matter. What I think was important was to have roots with each quarter section.

    For D. broomensis and D. ordensis, the half with root is starting to have new growth.

    D. broomensis




    D. ordensis




    D. ordensis leaf that fell off - it has grown about 100% in length!


    D. dilatato-petiolaris - both halves have roots and have produced new growth
