I graft heirloom varities to high quality disease resistant rootstock that was breed for grafting.

Of the three rootstocks I use one will give you more veg growth, to help speed up plants with low vigor.

Another is a rootstock that will concentrate on boosting fruit production.

Third one does kind of both.

Main goal is to get heirloom tomatoes to harvest in the field without disease. Takes some playing around with matching the rootstock to the variety, but once you get it right, some heirlooms will yield like a hybrid and remain healthy the full season long.

That's great! I love heirloom taste but yes vigor is lacking sometimes.
Think I may tool around with my tomatoes in the spring! Thanks for the tip!

Any chance you are going to try pollen chucking? Just imagine all the different hybrid seeds you could get off one plant.

Yes that is one of my hobbies!! I have done it the other way around. One female paint brushed by different male pollen. I made 8 Hybrids on one plant before!

Well it's not looking promising today. The grafts are wilting badly. So I will try once again. But this time I will defoliate the donor. So as to reduce transpiration.

Will put up a few pics in a little while.

I have a dedicated recovery chamber for grafts. Warm and humid. 3-5 days. Then gradually back off the heat and humidity.

80-85 and as much RH as you can get.

I panda plastic-ed a large cardboard box to put my flats of grafts in. Just a small cfl for light. Small heater and some water misted.

Yes I put the Base plant back under HID. Think the greenhouse effect contributed to the wilting!

So will be a little more gentle this time.

So I decided to try a smaller branch.



I just sliced it in half; instead of cutting a V. Bit too small to dick around with.



Again smaller donor this time. Razor blade for scale. Cut off all fans to reduce transpiration. Cut a steep point.
