Grafting my motherplants

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if you were ever going to try bad ass root mass + fussy top.

 

I tried to put four scions on the rootstock of a plant that I just harvested.

The problem is that the stem of the old plant becomes woody, it works better with juicy stems.

This first attempt obviously did not work.

 

I tried another one on the remains of another freshly harvested plant.

This time I left one of the old branches on the plant but removed the flowers of it.

To keep some juices flowing.

Result below:

I still have a little hope that the scion (left side) will stick.

And I will try it this combination few more times.

 

This thread has been buried for awhile. :) Pretty cool! I grafted roses in the old days.

 

@gardenartus: Give it a try,

try it with that plant that you can't get to make roots.

Good Luck!

FotH, did it fuse? I started reading the plant grafting manual recommended to me by Balza, need to get back into it... cool stuff, thanks for sharing.

No sir!

 

Just one succesfull attempt this year, but I'll try more soon.

 

The plan is the put the grafted plant outdoors this season,

To see how that turns out.

 

Although both parts ( scion and rootstock) stay genetically different,

they share the same sap streams.

So their hormones might affect each other.

We'll see.

Here's the Sativa on top of the Indica:

It's MalawiGold X Shackzilla on top of Madagascar X NewBlue Diesel.

 

Here's a side view of the plant.

After removing some parts of the MadBlueDiesel for cloning,

the Malzilla already is a prominent part of the plant and has seven or eight side shoots.

 

I made both crosses myself and applied some selection on them before grafting one of them on top of the other.

Now what?

 

Put it in the flower cabin?

 

Or outdoors?

 

Or treat one part with STS and make a cross between them?

 

Or keep it as a compact mother, as I like them both.

 

Or all of the above?

 

I'll try to make a few more, then...

Awesome work FOTH, i've done some fruit tree grafting this year and unsurprisingly my thoughts directly after were could I do this with cannabis? Good to see it in action and working.

I think you should move to one of the legal states and sell souvenir plants with multiple strain grafts on them to tourists. Your auto-flowers would also probably sell well.

Indeed, Saxo.

 

Yesterday I put another scion on top of the above plant.

I used NewBlueDiesel, one of the biological mothers of the rootstock plant.

So it's going towards the "compact mother" for now.

The outdoor season starts in about seven weeks.

 

No plans on moving MrDirt.

Tourists come here for the tulips!

Come for the tulips. Stay, because you've sold your return ticket for a multi-grafted mother plant from FOTH, Inc.

Not really, CF but into DIY.

 

Here's the spot where the graft is attached to the rootstock plant:

I think I'll buy some more of that sealer, and pack the wound with it.

Beware the fake of fake tulips, Mr Dirt.

 

After the war, in a show of gratitude, The Netherlands sent over 100,000 tulip bulbs which were planted in Ottawa. This shipment of bulbs has become an annual ritual and both countries have remained close friends through tulips. In 2017, 300,000 Canada 150 tulip bulbs will be showcased.

Tulips hold a special place in the hearts of Canadians...

 

After all these years and large annual donations they still have not figured out yet how to breed them themselves!

Tulip bulbs imported from the Netherlands are cheap over here. Raise the prices and Canadians would be all about tulip breeding.

I looked up how to call these grafted plants.

 

GRAFT-CHIMAERAS (GRAFT-HYBRIDS) are denoted with a plus sign before the name.

 

+Laburnocytisus adamii arose in the nursery of Jean Louis Adam in France in 1825.

Monsieur Adam had grafted the buds of the purple-flowered Cytisus purpureus onto a trunk of Laburnum anagyroides

 

So my creation is called +MadblueMalzilla foolii.

 

Shoots that arose on Laburnocytisus adamii from the grafting site had a unique mixture. The outer cell layers were of pure Cytisus, while the inner cell layers were of pure Laburnum

The resulting plant has an amazing mixture of stems, representing 3 distinct forms of inflorescence,:

some which have reverted to one of the parents,

whilst the third form has uniquely brownish-coloured and intermediate shaped and sized inflorescences.

 

Today I put the +MadblueMalzilla foolii in the flower cabin.

To see if there is any interaction, to see if the rootstock plant has any infuence in phenotypical expression of the scion.

Malzilla is a big stretcher, and the MadBlue makes purple buds.

 

A recent trend in grafting seems to be:

 

A common scion can be grafted to segregating rootstock populations to produce a genetic map of both the traits of the rootstocks themselves and their effects on scion phenotype.

 

Malzilla is my "common scion" in this case, as I grew it very often.

Here's the +MadblueMalzilla foolii after it's first day at 12/12 HPS

It's in a five liter pot.

 

I removed the lower branches of the rootstock,

so both parts are about equal in size and height now.

Will they have an effect on each other?

We'll see.

Frankenfool !

 

WoW .

 

Love Shackzilla such strong genetics and a good root stock to boot ,wished hericules was still about ,only 1 the heri phenol slightly seeded lower branches .

 

I know nothing only observations ,air layered some outdoor zamal/Haj girls at 55 n last Summer.

 

Auld adage bigger roots easier fruits seems about true .
