Pereskiopsis Experiment

     I'm trying a new growing technique with my Pereskiopsis, since I am confined to the indoors (artificial lights therefore) due to the climate here right now, and my collection is overgrowing my current space requirements, I have been looking for a way to really increase my planting density.
    I went down to the local home improvement store and picked up some seedling trays that accommodate 72 plants each...Then I packed them in there. I figure my watering frequency is going to go WAY up, and possibly my fertilization too, seeing as how the soil mass has been reduced drastically.
   On the bright side, soil use is lowered TREMENDOUSLY, and the time required for watering is reduced as well, so hopefully it will all balance out, I'll keep you posted..
    Here are some pics of this experiment so far:
    As you can see I also have some grafts in there, the one pictured being Ariocarpus Retusus. I will keep you posted on how this goes. Subscribe and comment!
