I wanted to try grafting and thought I would try on some seedlings as I seem to have too many.
The first is an obesum root stock with a arabicum scion.

This next one is a Arabicum root stock with a Swazicum scion.

We will have to see how they grow on. The Swazicum may prove to be too rampid a grower as opposed to the Arabicum root stock.
Will do some on the older plants next.

I see you did a flat graft - how did you hold them together while the graft healed?

I used some plastic graft tape over the scion and down the side of rootstock, then wrapped another piece around the rootstock below grafting area and tied snugly with more tape. Then placed a small plastic bag over it and secure.
Going to try what Rinoa's acquaintance does next time. She just takes a piece of plastic and lays it over top of scion, drapes it down the side of rootstock, wraps an elastic band around rootstock to hold down, then pulls the edges of plastic to make it tight over the scion.

I've seen it done in pictures, just never knew anyone who had actually done it that way. You must have nimble fingers! Thumbs up

I started two batches of seed, one from a fella in Africa and one from Sundaram of India.
Both started about 2yrs. ago. Love the leaves on them, so slender and folding in half with a grey green color.
