We’ve contemplated problems with parafilm here before. Simply put, some is not as good as some other, and if you’ve only had one, or the other, then that’s likely to determine your view of parafilm.
Well, I’ve had both. And it’s like the" little girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her for’ead. When she was good, she was very, very good, and when she was bad, she was horrid."
My parafilm purchase this year turned out to be horrid. It wouldn’t stretch properly without tearing, and it wouldn’t stick well when you wrapped with it.
I tried to make it work with scions I sent out, and I apologize to those I sent scions to wrapped with that crap. I thought I was making it stick, really I did, but when I went to graft with my own scions that way I was not happy. It unwrapped itself, wouldn’t stick - just not what I wanted at all.
I’m thinking seriously of just setting up a wax pot like Dax does. I don’t have a lot of scions to deal with, but it would be worth the little extra hassle just to have it right!
