Stenocereus queretaroensis seedlings for sale
« on: February 08, 2018, 05:11:49 PM »
I have Stenocereus queretaroensis seedlings for sale. They are 6 months old and 1 inch tall in height. These fruiting cacti are also called Pitaya De Jalisco. Here  is the seed source: http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php?topic=16455.msg208709#msg208709

I am selling for $5 per seedling minimum order of 2, and small flat rate box shipping cost.

Here is a picture of the seedlings;
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

These guys grow pretty fast and are some of the most beautiful cacti seedlings I've ever had! Mine have beautiful red new spines:) think I got seeds from you a year or two ago

Any idea how big these would need to be to flower?
I'm impatient so maybe I need to try graft onto something ha ha.

I have a Stenocereus stellatus large rooted cutting that flowered at about 4ft in height and 4 inch diameter. I would assume that this would be similar.  However may need to trigger a stress response / hormone release to spur earlier flowering from seedlings.

I hear grafting to different cacti can spur flowering with the various hormones flowing. I would think a mature dragon fruit that is flowering would be good to graft to.
