    It's like the movie "Mars Attacks" they graft a person's head onto a
    chihuaha dog's body. Multiple fruit trees are as wierd as that but not
    nearly as funny.

    That's what I was thinking when I read this Seattle Times headline a
    few days ago:

    It would be if someone could figure out how to graft on beef bones to
    make Jello.

    Heh! My sister liked that movie! I thought it was painfully stupid.

    Sorry.

    As for grafting cactus, they are so compatible there is almost nothing
    you cannot do with them! I want to place some Epiphilium on to a Cholla
    base, or maybe a T. Pachanoi. One of the Opuntias might be interesting
    grafted onto the sides of a tall Trichocereus such as San Pedro for a
    spineless one, or Peruvian torch for a spinier Opuntia.
