Kocos, your work is amazing..

Thank you for sharing as I have just got my hands on some Pereskiposis recently & plan on grafting loph seedlings soon.

Your info is invaluable to us in practice :)

many thanks.

peace, L2G

Just a quick update. Everything is going well as far as I can see. The double graft is still growing too although the loph int he foreground is starting to get pushed off it seems. The first graft made has now reached the size of my 2 year old plants. Amazing :)

Thanks burger, the ario is off to a slow start, I simply didnt notice the peres puting out a huge pup and only removed it a few days ago. Hopefully it will start packing on some weight now :)
Iam waiting for some seedlings to strengthen and my new line of peres to get a bit taller. Ill be doing another run! :)

hi,
think your lophos will grow nicely together :) ,they look nice!
Before i used to graft only the 'face' of the seedling but now i always graft the 'ass' too :):)
Here is a pic of a discocactus - the face and the ass grafted together - the face started growing ,the ass is still attached ,does not grow but stays alive :):)

Your such a pervert man :lol: grafting on asses to your faces jeez :D I actually did try grafting the end butts but none of them took for some reason. I wonder if you would cut a seedling lengthwise and put the two halfs on their own stock to get them to grow thus making two plants instead of one. Any thoughts on that?

Ill have to remember this and try next time. Ive got about 20 seedlings aproaching 2 months in age. Ill be grafting them soon.

- have not done exactly that but i hear people do it ;)

here is an old picture of ass grafted ario lloydii,this plant is probably long regrafted to harrisia jusbertii and now i do not know which one it is,

probably i did not express myself right ,meant that the ass and the face are grafted on separated pereskiopsis plants,

just do not throw away the ass,love the ass ,you never know!

I get it now :D I will try the but grafting again for sure. Have you tried this method with any Lophophora species?

Ive tried grafting week old seedlings but for some reason they didnt take. I remember that when I cut them they popped like a fishegg almost. A lot of fluid came out so perhaps thats the reason they didnt take.

Love the pictures!!

'Ass-grafting' :lol:

It is a good way to increase plant numbers, there has to be an areole left on the root piece to grow.

Here is an old thread of mine where I 'ass-grafted' a Loph...it worked great.
