hi soshroomhungry!
it looks like a t. grandiflorus... also looks a bit like a t. spachianus, does it grows straight up? a better picture would help.
pedros are tipically not grafted because it is already a fast growing cactus (it is widely used as ROOTSTOCK), usually people graft slow growing species...

i have a bunch of pedro tips about four inches tall, for grafting but not enough pedro stalks to graft them onto. So i want to know if you can graft them onto other NON active cacti that are more readily available.

Like felixhigh said, there's no reason to graft Pachanoi because they are among the fastest growing cacti on earth.

Una's Pedro grafting onto pereskiopsis experiments are mainly to bring seedlings to established cacti in a shorter period of time. Since your plants are already 'mature' i see no reason to graft them.

People also sometimes graft the growing tips of Pedros onto the base from which they have been cut after they harvest. This is so that the cactus doesn't get ugly from being cut all over and/or to skip the time the roots take to grow and get perfectly established.

Just graft the ones you can, if you like, and root the others. They'll grow just as quick as the grafted ones.
The only difference is that the grafted ones will have a headstart, however there is a downside: The bases which you graft them to prolly won't throw out pups like a plain decapitated base would.

I believe the reasoning behind his question is he he has those small pedro tops but that grandiflorous has a nice big root system to graft onto. If your going to graft those tops they should be already rooted.

I don't know much about grafting but from memory grandiflorous is a basally branching hybrid bred for it's flowers. It probably would just divert it's energy to basal shoots and therefore would be poor stock for grafting? Just a thought...
