    Trying out grafting

    so this would be my stock... its pedro i think and i would graft one of these buttons onto it--- the side one i also have peres to play with smaller buttons. also yesterday i decided to cut most of the buttons off the grafted cacti i have and start a loph army! was this a terrible idea? i put them on coco coir to encourage rooting. or should i try and graft them here do you guys thing they are big enough to root themselves?

    Trying out grafting

    thanks guys. my smaller buttons are too big to go onto peres i think... so i may just have to try an root them. have them all sitting out drying now. i read in another thread that coco coir was a good rooting medium?
