Flat Grafting

The following is a concise summary of what I do. For a better description, you can see my step-by-step flat grafting page.

The best description (and pictures) of grafting belongs to Miles Anderson's book. If you are serious about grafting, get his book -- it's a great book and he has great technique (of course, he's the guru of grafting).


Successes and Failures

My success rate for compatible stocks and grafts is about 70-80%. The grafting technique I use is available in the next section below. My list of successful grafts is as follows (I've lost count of the number of grafts, though):

My list of unsuccessful grafts is as follows:

This list has not been updated for some time, so it wouldn't have included grafts done in 2000 and 2001.

Of course, there's probably not enough data to which is good and which is bad for certain, but it seems that Myrtillocactus geometrizans is an excellent stock. It's very easy to grow, and you can get it from a cheap packet of Horti mixed cactus seeds. But then I am using the Russian Space Agency standard -- one data point suffices .
