Thx for the pic cheech226.
I wonder to what extend its possible to use a root like that, or a grafting as a kind of mother peyote, cut off new buttons, graft them, new buttons continously popping from the mother. I would feel bad though, cutting up my few peyote, but if one had several maybe...

oh yeah I had a quick question: if you graft a non active cactus over an active cactus do any alkaloids get passed over to the one above it?

I don't know for certain, but I HIGHLY doubt it..... since there is no "genetic machinery" in non active to actually be producing goodies. The non active would probably just feed of of it.

I finally found time to graft my cactus seedlings(L.williamsii,T.pachanoi,T.peuvianus and T.werdemannianus)
onto Pereskiopsis velutina stocks.
Seeds germinated a month ago and Peresk cuttings were made at the same time, now they had rooted for sure and had fresh growth in the top. I made a test grafting some months ago to see if I could do this. Heres a pic of my first grafting, these 2 pics of it is 7weeks old.
And here is what it looks like now after 7 weeks in 400w hps light.
Ar last, some pics of todays work:
(not best quality, the hps light fucks with it/me)
One needs a steady hand and surgical precision to work with those tiny seedlings, a new clean scalpel is used to make the cuts, and the finished braftings are placed in a humid environment, in this case a plastic box with semi transparent plastic bag over it.
I'll update this once a month or so, wish me luck.
Hi, I lam new here. I really like your pictures. But I have a question. Why do you graft Trichocereus, it is a fast growing cactus, right?
Nice closeup of the Lophophora graft!!

The main peyote button is app. 1" in diameter, the peruvianus grafting is app. 3"
Hm, somehow I missed a pic of the large pachanoi grafting....but the top has been cut off, leaving an inch of the spear on the pereskiopsis stem, it is shooting a new spear allready wich will be cut off to when reaching a size about 3-4" - looks like a quite prolific cactus-mother tek....
