Scott, only because I like to experiment. It had no roots when I grafted the buds on top of the branches (it was a cutting in rooting process). It had 5 branches. if they all make, it is a tree from onset.  this is my tree, it grows very well, so it is good for rootstock.

that is what happened Lukie. I wanted to see if works!  part is trying to root and part is trying to heal the graft... shall report the results. My unkilled cuts resulted in few loses, so I have to keep on practicing until weather is warm for me to do many grafts on my big tree out there.

Grasa will be a gazillionaire one day in both figs and $ with the grafting lessons she gives!  You could write an E-book, Grasa!

Like everyone else, love to see the progress of your rooting and grafting adventures!

Maybe you should change Grasa to Graftah!!

Suzi :-))
