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 !
