Thanks  ;D, I am growing over 10 varieties of Opuntia ficus-indica. I found the short grafting PDF very useful but simple. I am going to try the grafting method with toothpicks and clear tape on the Opuntia ficus-indica varieties to speed up flower and fruit development.

Please keep us updated with your experiments! :)

I'm also growing some not-named/identified opuntias, but I want more ;)

Growing some accessions from here, you may find it interesting going through the USDA accession list.
