Grafting marijuana can have great worth in medical mj or just for those wanting to keep plant count down, with grafting you are able to add many diff strains to a single rootstock.

Your cuts are called scion's and rootstock would be plant your grafting too.

I have seen pics of guys gorilla grows that have floxers and shit grafted to the pot to help hide it also.

Traits don't seem to pass from strain to strain with mj doing this so your lemon haze won't start tasteing like your bubba. What has been proven is that you want to choose a heavy feeder for your rootstock, if you put a heavy feeder scion onto a light feeder rootstock your wasting time due to amount of deff your gonna end up with on both plants due to heavy feeder stealing all nutrients.

There are many diff cut methods to clone, one of the quickest ways I have found is to take two plants and cut a 2" scar on one side to the middle of stalk basically take knife and scoop out a side of each one then match them together so the wounds are tightly touching, then wrap tightly with string or stretch ties whatever to hold them together tightly then in a couple of weeks you should be able to cut your scion off of donor plant just below the graft and untie stretch tie and she will be on her way.

Another way is to make a 2" or so cut into your rootstock at a downward angle cutting deeper more towards the center as you go, then at a 45 degree angle cut to your center cut again at a downward angle so you should have like a v cut into rootstock into center and angling out as cut goes up, now take scion and match your cut you just made in rootstock so that your scion will slip right into your little v, then tie up tightly

Big thing is keep scions moist as well as your cut or graft spot.

Sorry for lack of picks I will make some cuts soon and take pics for you guys

I also failed at grafting. What you dont read, is you need damn near 100% humidity when grafting.

Before cloning, before grafting, before topping.... Always water your plants about 20 minutes before the procedure... This gives them time to absorb the water and will amaze you at the differance it will make...

Sounds like you have a Ph problem! Are you using plenty of homemade Co2? Maybe throw some Epsom salt on floor of grow room and squirt lemon juice on ceiling, and add grape juice when you flower...it will be good... :P

I wasn't sure I still had these pics...I love photobucket!

Here is a pic of a NYCD with three other strains grafted on it....Jack Herer, Pez and a Big Band. I have good luck grafting but...here is my secret.... I use a tall aquarium. It's a good way to control humidity.

Grafting is an old art ,I learned it in the late seventys the main things that I was taught are 1 healthy plants 2 clean cuts 3 tight fits and last is to seal it and his can be just wrapping with wire ,twine, tape or cellophane you can also use glues and hormones that most nurseries sell I have some old cutters just for this and now there are many cutters sold at nurseries here are a few picks of some basic grafts that I found on the Web
