In many cases I was mixing and matching sizes. They don’t all grow at The same rate. The Estamino plants I had were super fast growing monsters that had to be up-potted earlier. In many cases I just shook the dirt off the scion plants roots, then dug a little hole next to my rootstock and did a cram, bury and water it in with the scions root system. It sure seems to be working.
The plants have plenty of time to recover from shock in their humid healing chamber.
I only have six rootstock left to graft. Omar’s Lebonese was super slow getting going, and didn’t germinate super well. Only 3 of that variety and one is finally big enough to try grafting. …Maybe tomorrow.
I’m keeping good track of scion/rootstock combos, and also going to grow test plants on their own roots to see how they survive and produce.
I’m sure some folks would think I am CRAZY, but this is fun to me!
