Thank you. I couldn't agree more. An update on this pup as it is starting to show some freakiness already.

For those that thought the first cotyledon graft was a fluke. I present another cotyledon graft and an update to the first cotyledon graft on the left. Both pictures taken today.

Lime-aide update. This one is not only pupping, but starting to show off some nice color variations as well.

Hi all,


Your "three headed"grafting is really cool .. how long can you keep it this way before it break from the Pereskiopsis because of their own weight ??


This update is for you. As always. Picture is taken Sunday the 24th of September 2017 and post same day.


And every morning I wake up to beautiful plants and cacti is a good morning indeed. I can't say that too much in life brings me the happiness that I see when I see a seedling start to germinate other than that same seedling getting large enough to tell some of its phenotype. Then the excitement builds to an all new height yet again when that specimen blooms for the first time. Cacti and plants in general when grown from seed generally provide me with anywhere from 1-3 years of extreme excitement before it starts to wear off. Only, then it doesn't wear off as I am watching the next generation of seed go through the same process and on and on we go.....

This little yellow dream had its head chopped off today as you can see. I needed him for some grafting stock as I'm running low.

Here lies his head. Do I toss it in the garbage?

Your grafting works are really impressive ...thank you for the update and the pixs ! How long can you keep them grafted on the Pereskiopsis ? I mean, is there a delay to change the support of the graft ? ( sorry if my questions seems to be dumb ...)

I honestly don't know how long you can keep them on a graft. I've never had any problems with my grafts other than bumping them and thereby knocking the graft loose. I like cacti on their own roots so I don't tend to leave them on past a foot in height. Here are a bunch of new babies I have grafted. There are some really interesting specimens hidden in this bundle.

Todays grafts were many, but these two were something special so I thought I might share them with you.

 My photos are all taken with a phone. I spare no expense when it comes to quality photos.
