Success!!!

I put the stump in the dark for a week...came back and uncovered it and it has a pup!

Yes Frank...I think too much...Yes I did intervene...and yes...now it is pupping...and I feel like I have gained some knowledge.

Life is good.

Peace

PS, Just had some Bridgsii in the low light, a cutting, waiting for the cut to callous and the thing turned completely blue!

I've experienced something similar. I moved to a higher altitude and wanted to see how my plants would fare over the winter and who would survive in the new environment so I didn't cover any of them. Many cacti tips suffered frost damage, some mild, some extreme, some were just stressed but the tip continued to grow. In all cases, it caused them to pup like crazy both near the top and the base. I didn't set out to harm the plants, but I wanted to see who would survive to have an idea for the long term. The end result is definitely cool looking though. I'll post some pics soon.

Once again I've had incredible success in a straightup mulch planting media. Repotting slow growing specimens resulted in not only growth but multiple pupping beyond belief. Pics soon to come.

instead of trying to get your tricho to pup more

just get a more puppy clone

some kk339 are masters of pupping.

or chop it up a lot :P

BAPins is interesting, but I think it must somewhat stress the plant too much. Haven't used it yet.
