Grafting San Pedro & Peruvianus
Before you get too excited about grafting keep in mind the possibility for failure. I have had many grafts fail. You should only attempt them during the warm, dry growing months when the plants heal quickly. Winter time is a risky period to graft as the plant's immune system is dormant. Think infection.
(Above) Upside down grafts force offsets. Time will tell if it is any better than they do naturally after a tip is removed. (lower two) Making 2 in 1 plants is just a whim. Why not have a Peruvian torch and a San Pedro grafted into one plant?

(Right) Taking a few areols from a valuable Peruvianus.
Time will tell how well it develops.
