Successful experience by grafting multiple pereskiopsis with mature peyote cactus as scion

Successful experience by grafting multiple pereskiopsis with mature peyote cactus as scion

Today I want to share some grafting experiment done using 4 pereskiopsis with impalement method to lophophora Williamsii variety Huizache 6 years old used as scion.

I call it Frankenstein crafting style made by Jason De Angelis !
You can see the results at the end of the slide, some little heads poping up and ribs already forming.
You can easily do it at home, it is not that difficult and the lophophora will significantly grow faster. It is really worth it.
We have pereskiopsis stock available, peyote plants and the method to graft them successful explained here:

I will explain you here a bit of my impalement method: 

1: I join the 4 pereskiopsis together and block them with some attach to block them. 

2: I slice the top of it to make it looks like spike 

3: I cut in the middle of the scion (at this time the scion was just 3 cm diameters)

4: impale the scion on the pereskiopsis spike.

5: Then directly block it to go off with plastic zip and then close it on the 2 sides until it is all blocked.

6: All these steps done need to wait at least 7 days for the scion the heal on the pereskiopsis. The cut part of the pereskiopsis on the top will start to inflate then block the scion.

There is my result after 4 month:

Plus some head pup hop:

You will ask me: and what about the root ?

Yes I didn’t throw it and decide to put back in the soil and wait. This is the result after one month:

So be patient nature will maybe give you all the loves back!

Note that I was very lucky one it. From what I see it has 80% of chance that the roots won’t pup up any head and all and die after few weeks and I advice you to craft it the roots(yes it is possible).

I fail a lot to try on pereskiopsis so my advice of craft stock will be more like Myrtillocactus geometrizans and other with the same shape. I have some stock available for it if you need you can contact us here:

Now you know everything about implement method. You can have your own solution or experience because this is just an example to show you but of course all scion or craft can react differently. Just let us know result and share with us your experience. It is always nice to see other performance 😉

Let me give you some recent update about the craft. After  6 month it already gave  me a lot of bloom and fruits. Can consider my experience fully successful and it make me really proud !

All precious cactus team wish you to have the best result on crafting !! and if you have any question please do not hesitate.

    hello, how long can peyote survive like this before splitting?
    I have heard that when grafting a single peyote in multiple pereskiopsis this happens.

    Hello, It is depends on. Most of our grafts with this surgery solution can survive more than a year. You can choose to keep your scion on it until the pereskiopsis dried out or cannot hold it anymore. If you want you can send to me an email here and I will show you the one survive after years without any problem and even more beautiful 🙂 This our email:
    Thank you for your question.

    Hello, I have noticed in the blogs and videos about grafting that a lot of people use plastic bags and rubber bands or zip ties to hold the scion in place during the healing process. My question is can you use wax as a seal around the connection? it seems like it would be a great bandaid as it were .Just curious

      Yes sure can. You can have your own way to do it but I personally prefer plastics zip and rubber bands. Much easier.

    Is it possible to graft the lophophora Williamsii to a San Pedro stalk?

      Yes, of course. The lophophora will grow as fast as the SP if the graft is succesful.
