    Is it possible for me to graft a tomato stalk to a sunflower stalk? Or vise versa?

    i am looking for an alternative way to speed up growth and girth in fruiting plants such as peppers and tomato plants along with a few others. I have grafted marijuana plants while living in Denver Colorado, we made hybrid plants via grafting different sub-species onto mid grown to baby mid grown plants. With outcomes of hybrid plants and new faster growing larger plants. I don't know that a sunflower and tomato are very similar at all but every bit of info helps.


    i know I need more research but I would like to know if I'm wasting my time.

    Were on the verge of a smarter, healthier, longer tomorrow. We just can't give up on the dream that started it all. We would be robbing the world of a beautiful thing.. Our minds.

    I thought I'd seen this somewhere before. Same person? Different plants.

    Sunflowers and thistles are not closely related, but they do belong to the same family (Asteraceae), both have round stems, can grow in similar environments, etc.

    Does their structural similarity imply compatibility for grafting, or is there a genetic compatibility that must be accounted for?

    thanks for the redirect. Different person though. Thistles are not the question. Flowering fruit plants are at hand.

    Thistles are flowering plants too, so your answer doesn't make full sense.

    However, the answer in the quote Zinjan provided gives the same answer as to what your question is, tomatoes/peppers and sunflowers are different plant families and will not graft to each other.
