Whoever did that graft grew incredibly fast.. Peres is amazing isnt it? See how they turn red just as they begin to burst into light speed.. Looks like some of my earlier ones.. For me to reach that size its more like 6 months but in a tropical climate thats probly the norm..

Cool pic..:cacti:

In theory could u cut a couple of pups off, graft them and then let develop pups to continue the process ?

Yes! I think what your talkin about is cloning.. Its easiest with caespitosa but can be done with most if not all cacti.. You can graft one pup and let it grow until it has pups then graft those.. If you dont have a caespitosa it can be done to williamsii or others by allowing the graft to get an inch or so around and cut the top 20% off.. After a few weeks as long as there are areoles to grow from you may get up to 9 offsets..

Heres one thats been topped as we call it.. Click the link..

Heres some pics of the latest grafts.. They are all clones of a seed grown caespitosa.. I included a pic of an older one similar to the mother used for the peres bush.. They were inside in the shade for a while but now are under flouros.. They should plump up nicely..:teeth:

I hate winter!!!

Heres some inspiring stuff from a Foaf.. Very cool artwork too..! Most of these have been grown aeroponic.. You can see that in the pic with the flasks.. Enjoy..

Aeroponics are the shiznit.. Simply put.. Cuttings of the pereskiopsis are allowed to heal a couple days then thrown into a aero system.. Roots grow super fast and I've even revived shrivled almost dead grafts by putting them in aero.. After they have roots, graft and they grow very fast..

An aeroponic setup with a powerful air pump is way better and cleaner for grafting IMO. The air pump I have can bubble like 24 flasks easy.. I like to crowd em too so theres like 3 grafts in each.. Dose very lightly with fertilizer.. Change water every week or two..

Ill be setting up my aero system again soon so Ill get a pic tutorial up or somethin,..

Wow.. Those are nice... Do you use artificial lighting or sun? If artificial what kind? Looks like you got it down.. Same plastic pots I got.. :cacti:

Hey. Thanks :) I use artificial light. 4 x 4' flouro's (2 x cool white and 2 x grolux tubes spaced about 6-8" apart). The lights sit about 1-2" off the tops of the plants. Those pots are perfect from peres grafts, you can cram about 40 to a regular grow tray :)

Excellent... Same setup as mine almost.. Ive been using 4 x 3 footers all are cool white.. I have a couple that have a red/orange hue for flowering but never used those ones.. Those are some beautiful grafts.. Keep up the good work..!

Heres more of the peres buckets.. Some of these are topped.. Meaning the tops are slice off to promote pupping..
