| 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.|

| 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.
