 Wrinkly Grafted Cactus
Posted By: Kristin, Savannah, GA, USA Posted On: 9/21/2012 11:32:00 AM
I have a grafted cactus I just bought recently (hylocereus gymnocalycium) and brought it with me to school. I replanted it when I bought it in a cactus soil mix and it sits in the sunlight all day. When I got it it had flowers on top and was a bit wrinkly around, but didn't think too much of it. It's been about two weeks, and it still has flowers but it looks as if it's gotten even more wrinkled and the color is changing from its orangy-yellow to a deep pink. We keep the dorm at 73, any hotter and my roommates complain (and it ends up getting shoved down to 70). My bedroom is warmer but there's no sunlight because of where my window is placed (and I have blackout curtains that never get opened). Is it too cold, should I stop watering it to see if that's a problem, or is the grafted top simply not taking? The bottom part looks fine, by the way.
