Product Name: Cactus Grafted Mixed (P5.5c)
A grafted cactus, also known as a cactus graft or cactus hybrid, is a type of cactus plant created by joining two different cactus species or varieties together.
The base or rootstock cactus is typically chosen for its strong root system and ability to provide stability and support to the grafted top portion. The scion is the top part of the grafted cactus, selected for its unique characteristics such as colorful flowers or interesting growth habits. It is usually smaller and grafted onto the rootstock. This is usually done by carefully cutting both the scion and rootstock and then attaching them - the two cactus parts must be in close contact for successful grafting.
Over time, the two cactus pieces heal and grow together, forming a single plant. Grafted cacti often grow more quickly than non-grafted ones because they can draw nutrients and water from the strong rootstock. Grafted cacti allow for unique combinations of characteristics from both the scion and rootstock. For example, you can have a cactus with colorful flowers grafted onto a vigorous and hardy rootstock.
Some cactus varieties may have top-heavy growth or a tendency to lean. Grafting onto a sturdier rootstock can provide better stability.
