Small pots are fine for grafting short term. If you intend on keeping you scion grafted for a long time then you may need to consider to re-pot later down the track.

I think people handle various ways of Pereskiopsis cuttings.
I use cutting for grating stocks.

Cut 15 cm young shoots
Pot in 50 mm square tube and keep in a plastic box for 1 week
Graft seedlings and keep 1 more week
50 mm square tube can handle easily during grafting.

Repot stocks with scions into 90 mm Olive-pot 1 week after grafting
Since the growing speed of scions is reduced dramatically 2 years after grafting, I degraft scions.
The photo is 7 months old scions with stocks in Olive-pots.

Stocks after degrafted are kept for new shoots collection purpose.
