Cactus / Onzuka

An astrohytum myriostigma cv Onzuka was in flower.
Onzuka is one of my favorite  Astrophytum and keep quite many.
Since seedlings tend to elongate, I graft them and degraft to minimise the problem.

Cactus / ritteri

An aztekium ritteri was in flower.
A small off-set was grafted and degrafted later.
Since the rooting of ritteri is difficult, a short Pereskiopsisstock is remained.
