About a year's worth of graft pics. Took a while to get started. The loph had mite damage hence the decision to graft. Tried to keep the root of the loph growing, it pushed out a pup and then promptly shrivelled and died.

The graft has started to grow well in the last 6 months. The pachanoi rootstock has never pupped.

Just playing around with a few grafts, jeez crests are heaps harder to secure down than your standard loph.

Dreamwalker, there is a secret to getting Saguaro's to grow (after a few years under a nurse plant)...it's FULL SUN -> FULL SUN -> FULL SUN

The san p mother x cereus....are getting really gold...hope they keep this colour, but it may mean I guess that they might not survive on their own roots

Sierra Canyon x SS02, tip went monstrose, both pups on this plant are the same age, chopped the tip of the monstrose growth off and grafted it to pach.

Sierra Blue x SS02, this plant rotted in winter, saved the tip by cutting it off, healing it etc, its growing well now.

These are what grew from the base over summer, left a bit on the rootstock, the big bit is on the trich and the small spiky bit is on the pere in the left of the ones in the box.

TBMC on pach, this is my first go at one of these, been to scared to cut her, she come from ebay, has grown very well over summer in the full sun, grafted the bit to pach.

TBM, seen one of these grafted to a tall pach, it looked really good, had multiple offsets.

also the mutant loph mother on pach and some lw's.

Mutant loph all chopped up and grafted to different stocks.

Peru crests and reverts, some of my first pere and selenicereus grafts that worked, I've stopped pulling the leaves off the pere now :)

grafting is very fucking exciting......
