Great plants, I love those crestata-forms.
Tomorrow I also will show new crests.

Thank you, But as now I see that not all offsets are cristate, only main branch is crest. I even tried to graft from this plant some oftets with no success  >:( I wanted to regraft it from Pereskiopsis to e.g. Trichocereus, but I leave it as it is probably on this thick Pereskiopsis

I had similar situation with T.valdeziana that started to crest. I removed all the non-crest pups and the crested bit grew much faster It is now wide enough that I can cut it into a few sections and graft them all. Because I can get three sections plus leave some on the Pereskiopsis chances of success are high.
Your crest is definitely worth going to the trouble of propagating. If you let it get big before chopping it up you have a bit of insurance.

That kikko crest is fantastic, Marazz! Did it grow from a seedling?

This mutant grew from Fukuryu seed, Second photo shows the new growth that is red with pale blobs that eventually become the growth points. This is a really strange!
