Those look perfect! I find opuntia easier to use than pereskiopsis, i also use 2-3 seedlings per pad.
Out performing all of my pereskiopsis grafts by miles.

A man got drunk and impaled his car on a giant saguaro cactus

(CNN)A man in Pima County, Arizona, ran his car over a median on Wednesday and ending up dangerously close to the business end of a saguaro cactus.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department said that when they arrived the man appeared disoriented and suffered minor injuries.
He was later arrested and charged with DUI.
When it comes to unexpected road hazards, you can't get more Arizona than a saguaro. This massive cactus species can grow over 40 feet tall, making them ideal symbols of the glory of the American Southwest and, also, very effective battering rams. According to the Arizona Department of Agriculture, saguaro cacti are a protected native plant with laws and penalties regarding their movement, treatment and destruction.

What dose eveyone thing. I got a Penis Cacti cutting earlier this spring. Successfully rooted it, and once it was establiahed, I lopped the tip for a graft.
f0cb77e25084c065b4a7d066fb3334b8.jpg
The tip graft is growing nicely, and this evening while poking in the grow, noticed the base of my Penis Cactus has thrown a pup.

Now what I'm wondering is if I were to take another inch from the tip of the previously cut portion and graft that what are the chances it will throw pups ... haven't really worked with these sausage plants b4. While any Trichocereus will throw pups from a node, ive looked and looked and havent seen any nodes where one would expect pups to push from.

Good question skunk..........

I have one of these penis cultivars, and agree there are not the areolas you would expect a pup to form from. Nevertheless I see mine produce both base pups and side pups, so there must be some internal structure that allows a vascular system to form to feed the new side growth.

 

You know your base pup will keep growing. Given time you could see additional side pups form as is, but I would probably try it, judging from your obvious success with grafts, and the fact that another project to add to the hundreds you have going does not seem to dissuade you.......................... :tongue:

They really only l
Pup from the random ass areols
If there is no spikes no pup.

Most likely a waste of time and energy..


I have quite a few of these penis plants now.
The strangest place ive seen a pup form was from the veryy tip. Besides that only the spikes.

Your best bet would be to let that pup grow out, and cut it off leaving a few sets of areols behind to make a mother stump out of it
