Pereskiopsis spathulata (cactus)
Pereskiopsis spathulata is a member of the Cactaceae family, mainly used as a grafting stock for slower growing species such as Lophophora, Ariocarpus, Aztekium, Turbinicarpus, Pelecyphora, etc. If fact you can graft any other cactus to it that you like. It is also used to accelerate Trichocereus and other Cactaceae seedlings to mature flowering forms. The very tip is best for grafting but further down the stem can also be used to success. It roots easily from freshly cut stems and grows tall quite quickly.
