looks like a Ludwigia

thanks Botanicus! it certainly looks like that species,
except it's not growing semi-submerged in water.

I have a short psychotria plant that gets about 2-3 feet with tiny dark green leaves I'm not sure what type it is but um having trouble posting a picture here.
try to get a photo but here is PSYCHOTRIA CAPENSIS with small dark leaves.

I feel like I recognize it, and the rattling thing sounds  familiar, but I can't remember what it might be... It's kinda frustrating, because it's slightly familiar but I can't figure it out.

No problem on the review. I can honestly say that it is and has been very pleasurable to do business with all those places at one time or another and it is hard to visit any of them without dropping some money.

As for the grafting, I know many people will graft at all times of the year. I personally prefer to grow when my plants are growing their fastest and have no anticipated slow down in the next 3-4 weeks. With that being said, 90% of my most recent grafts were all done on unrooted Pereskiopsis so while not ideal, it can still be done. I also  realize many don't use anything to hold their seedlings down when they graft. This method below though is one I like to help ensure seedlings don't float off my Pereskiopsis. Parafilm is my number one preferred method of holding seedlings and young grafts in place. Cling wrap would be a number two when it comes to cacti grafts.

Remember, no matter how small the tip is, if it has an areole, it can be grafted. Something like a parafilm wrap not only keeps those small grafts in place, it helps hold enough moisture in that they don't dry out before the graft can take. It also allows you to push your grafts harder by allowing you to water throughout the grafting process.

Thanks for the info guys.. medium zucchini in 8 months, iam convinced, must try some grafting!
i was planning to do so anyway, i got peris and baby cactis, i've lost some cool looking seedlings.

Once i tried grafting, didn't use sterile technique or provide humidity, so they died i lost interest..
i'll research and try doing it right next time.. and Inysn thanks for that seed review, very helpful!

I have a few species of salvia I'd like to make more cuttings off. Any tips for this?

limelight and pineapple sage specifically.

I've propagated pineapple sage simply by taking a few cuttings and stripping them of most their leaves and sticking in moist soil. In other words, Dexter is right on the money on this one. I haven't propagated limelight as far as my memory will go back... but I can't imagine it being any more difficult. Definitely give it a shot as per Dexter's recommendation.

 I tend to go very inexpensive when dealing with learning.

Misplant seeds $2-10 for 30-100 seeds. Minimum order $20 + 5 dollars shipping

Sacredsucculent  $2.50-4.00 for 25-70 seeds + 3 dollars shipping

Cactus store  $1.25-1.50 for 25 seeds  up to $20-24 for 1000 seeds no minimum order +5 dollars shipping

Koehres-kaktus 100 seeds 2.40-xxx euro. 10K for 45 euro.  2.50-4 euro shipping

Mesagarden 20 seeds for $1.20- $1.40 or $3.05-5 for 100 seed $8-$16 for 500 seed + $3.50 postage

With all of that said, each place does have some very nice choices to pick from in my opinion. I've dealt with all of these companies over the years and so far, I've never been disappointed in any of them. Some of them I've even made trades with in the past so some are or were open to barter. You really can't go wrong with any of these companies.
