i know this is not the standard for grafting but is this ok? i thought the growth rings would meet up perfectly making them grow even faster? what do you guys think

Man those little grafts look epic. I think they will both grow well. I grafted a lophophora onto a pup of a t. pachanoi a little while ago. It is still hacking, and even though there is a new pup coming of the main 'trunk' (next to the graft), both appear to be charging.
Hey, where did you acquire the pereskiopsis plants from? I'm not sure if you mentioned that or not?
I would love some to try this sort of thing too. Onya Dazza, good stuff.

Darren,

The way you have done it is no problem. As a general rule the younger the stock growth the better the chance of a successful seedling graft. The only problems that arise are; with pereskiopsis once the scion gets heavy the "branch" can and will snap off. Having two scions on the same stock will slow growth rates and once they get bigger they will run into each other.

Good work.

thanks HN

does the stock keep growing in girth after the scion has met. if not i will have to regraft fairly soon i figure as the branch is quite thin. i have been going hard at this grafting... i have done frailea lobivia echinocerous ariocarpus echinopsis and stenocactus all on pereskiopsis with success so far.

I AM LOVING THIS CACTI COLLECTING GIG ITS GREAT!!!!!

regards
Darren

The stock will grow but very very slowly, it is hardly noticeable. Good to hear you are having fun with it.
