Today our grafted crested variegated Trichocereus pachanoi is 82 days old and starting to pup. Unfortunately, the pup did not choose the proper spot5b1c2f01ba429_areolegraftpuppingTrichocereuspachanoi9June2018288.thumb.jpg.3fe1901370329e40b18c301818efa018.jpg to pup!


Is it cheating if you take a an areole that is starting to pup like this one and graft it or will that get you kicked out of the grafting union?

Only one way to find out. :)


I have a bit of a theory when it comes to selecting areoles to be grafted. Look for the ones with a new spine developing from it. It will have a bit more life / activity going on in that areole and may be a lot more prone to pup sooner.
