    Multi Loph graft

    That may well work mate, though I personally have never tried it. I also can't claim to be nearly as knowledgeable as many others on this forum, so hopefully one of the cacti savants will chime in. That being said, if you can graft the bottom half of a seedling and as long as there is an areole it will pup and grow, I don't see why this wouldn't work. You'd still have to remove the pereskiopsis though, which would leave a deep wound that may well become a very inviting inroad for infection. I'd be interested to see your results though, I know how it feels to have to split up a lovely multi headed loph and I'm not a fan of doing it. Good luck mate.

    Multi Loph graft

    Hey mate, nice graft there. I'd say that you'd have to at least remove the lower buttons in order to get a clean cut above the graft union. The scion tends to engulf the top of the pereskiopsis which would make it hard to graft the complete loph without some dissection.

    Wanted: lophophora williamsii seeds

    I've had anything from 1 to about 15 seeds in a pod, not sure what's normal as I only have personal experience to go off. Not sure how much they are worth though either as I've never had enough to sell, generally just chuck them directly into soil to germinate.

    Bugger, I recently relocated, otherwise I'd be taking a day trip from the Whitsundays.

    Ants often take them from mine. I swear every time i look at a fruit and think I'll give it a day to finish ripening I come back to a little pink nub chewed three quarters down.

    You'd want to hope it was something special if you forked out $28 per cm like the most recent punter... Wish i had pockets that deep.
