Welcome! vijayendrasingh . I think the answer is definitely yes, but I cannot give you examples. Maybe someone else will chime in here.

Yes to grafting more than one on a caudex.As for shape suppose you could make a box and force the caudex to grow into that shape.It has been done before with things like pumpkins and watermelons.

I just purchaced a small Adenium with 5 grafts on it, they all still have bits of tape on them and all the grafts show new growth. Jim.

I have been busy with repoting, my very large plant was growing out the bottom of the pot but it is so big it was hard to handle, I had to break the pot away, now I had to cut a lot of those long stringy roots off but nothing major, I have it potted in a more shallow pot and hope I have not killed it.

Doris, cuttings make fat roots eventually.

Hello, Vijayendra! Welcome!

If seedlings have their tap root cut off, the feeder roots will develope. I have several plants that the fat root part is almost a caudex. Ii is easy to see where the roots were trying to go straight outwards, but they were stopped abruptly by the pot they were in. I am always thinking about making some sort of spiral with newspaper and peatmoss, like a jelly roll cake? to put inside a pot so the roots will follow the layers of the newspaper. Huh?
