Mammillaria Grafts

This is a Mammillaria gracilis graft on an Echinopsis. It's sort of a test to see if the Mammillaria likes the nutrients provided by the Echinopsis sp.

The graft was performed around the beginning of June 2000. In the first picture above, the graft is almost a week old. The cut surfaces have already dried up and come together. A week later, in the second picture, the graft is well established.

After another week (above left), new growth is just about visible. The graft has elongated a little. A month later (above right), the height of the graft has doubled.

Three months later (4 months after grafting, both pictures above), the length of the graft has doubled again. The Mammillaria is growing fast enough that the Echinopsis is producing very few additional offsets. This is clearly a good combination.
