Beautiful grafted cactus

This cactus is a knock-out. I have several grafted cactus and when I first saw this one on Planet Desert I wasn't so sure I loved it but I kept coming back to it, and then took a leap and ordered it. I rarely write reviews but I wanted to leave feedback on this particular plant. It's beautiful and truly a work of art. I also am impressed with the growth on the stock cactus. Wow.
