Has anybody here had any experience grafting christmas cacti to other cacti? I have seen pictures of it having been done and one in particular was to one of the larger opuntia species though I have seen pictures of them grafted to other cacti as well. Not one of the pictures had the stock identified. I had seen an article years ago about doing this but I cant find it anymore. From what I remember the actual process was a very simple graft. If anyone can help with suggestions on what to use and how to do it I would be very grateful!

Thanks!
