| ok, i dont need to do this, but say you have a peyote button...
and its got a few pups growing from its base.
and you want to remove them to graft onto a san pedro.
how would you go about taking the baby off?
twist, cut, etc.

|A smooth, razor sharp blade such as a paring knife.|

| I am watching
methodically and efficiently graft a button to a stalk of cactus using his 'Double Pickle' tek. He will post this hopefully with pics. But it's cool to be watching this in my living room. He doesn't know I'm posting this while listening to him and watching.
He walks out of the kitchen with a cup, a paper towel folded and nestled inside the cup. It has iodine in it I think. He dips the knife in the cup and drags it against the paper towel. Does this before each slice.
Makes the slice on the button, holds it on and matches the stalk & button together, slices still intact.
Lines 'em up then quickly pulls the slices out. The stalk and button are now grafted together. He has prevented contams, kept oxygen bubbles to a min which helps prevent breakdown of (too much info on that part, he lost me...good pot), "fresh clean wound" he says.

| yep, the cactus in the first pic originally looked like the cactus in the last pic.
once the graft took, the growth rate of the peyote would accelerate, causing it to form 'pups' around its sides. notice the smoother looking central peyote 'bud' surrounded by rougher, hairier-looking 'pups' that have grown after the graft took.
