So 2 months ago I randomly grafted a few mammillaria onto peppers just to have some 'click bait' footage/images but did graft them in with intent without any real expectation of success...

Having seen minimal success that it 'took' due to swollen base I did another graft using an astrophytum onto another pepper plant. The original graft seems to have failed HOWEVER the astrophytum actually has a lot of growth at the base either a pup or some sort of chimera growth. Still updating however very cool to see VERY distant plants take.


This is something someone commented on an older video and will attempt this since I find these grafts quite interesting. I've suggested a few grafts in the past and not sure if anyone has attempted them. But there area a few interesting possibilities that have a MUCH high chance of success then this did.

I would like to see you graft one onto a tobacco seedling and another on a Portulaca grandiflora. "DNA studies show that Portulacaceae possibly cannot be separated from Cactaceae because it lacks autoapomorphies; Cactaceae however presents areoles which are not present as such in Portulacaceae." Neotropikey As you replied to another comment, flowering plants are probably not best for grafting onto, as they are putting everything into the flowers.
