PostSubject: Regrafting on Pereskiopsis   Tue Mar 11, 2014 11:03 pm

Hi,
I grafted some cacti seedlings on some pereskiopsis plants the other day; some seedlings did not work very well. Can I reuse the same pereskiopsis stock to regraft some new seedlings? I will perform the same operation on the same pereskiopsis stem by cutting under the previous cut and join the new cacti seedlings.

Thanks
Abraham

As I understand it, technically you can, but you might be getting into the harder wood of the pereskiopsis so perhaps not desirable. Other members do way more grafting than me, so they should be able to advise..

yes.

might not "take off" as fast as others but succesfull grafts will eventually flourish.

Yes. You can most definitely re-graft and have success. The rule of thumb is this, young seedlings have the best chance of 'taking' to younger growth of the Pereskiopsis. Of particular interest is 'active growth' if the stock is in active growth the success rate will rise. As the stock becomes more woody, as Navajoa suggests, you will find it very difficult to have a successful seedling graft.

Hope this helps a bit. Seedling grafts are simple in theory, however, they can become quite complicated and confusing.

If you want some more info I'm happy to help, I could blab on forever about grafts I do them all the time.

Thank you for all your replies. Today I regrafted some new cacti seedlings on the same pereskiopsis  plants. I attached few pictures of the grafted seedlings

This seedling has been grafted last year.


In the past many grafts did not join very well on the pereskiopsis stem. Now I use plastic wrap with a peg to keep a constant pressure for 2 days. I keep the plants in a plastic box with high humidity for 3 weeks.

You have done a good job, they look like promising grafts.
