    Periodically we will share a question that is presented too us by our facebook fans. The following is one of those questions.

    If I were to place two chalice frags close together, would they graft together or just fight it out?

    My vote would be for an all out war with one survivor.

    If they are same genus and species, the likelihood of grafting is much higher. Whereas different genera will more often than not melt each other fairly quickly! Mycedium can and will send out vicious sweeper tentacles, killing or scarring nearly anything it touches!
