Lightbulb Grafting?

I am going to try another shot at grafting.
Posting this here so I'm committed and cannot get lazy and backout!
What I wanna do is take the 3 gal. rootball I'll have from a Casey Jones I'm gonna harvest this weekend,and graft a few different things on to it,some FMS purple power and maroc,and 1 or 2 other things that I can't remember, then put it outside and hope it EXPLODES with growth! (plus it will be freaky and kinda cool!)
I made one half-assed attempt at this before, and it did not work.
This time I think it will.
I'll get this going over the weekend with pics.

Blumat adjustment procedure: (for soil)In a bucket ,fill and soak units under water for at LEAST an hour. Then screw on cap( nice and tight!) under water making sure not to trap any air.
Leave dripper line at ~8cm. long.
Give the pot a good watering.
Insert B/M snugly into nicely compacted soil(not too loose) .
Open till water comes out, carefully close until just a drop barely forms.
Tighten 1.75 - 2 Arrows
Adjust as necessary for a few days, then leave it alone!

I've done quite a bit of grafting with apple & pear root stock, i.e. hardwoods. It's a very straightforward process for the most part.

You definitely have your work cut out for you attempting to graft softwood plants like cannabis.

I'll be interested to read how your progress is going.

I figured the way herb fixes itself when broken or snapped, it might not be too difficult?

True - up to a point.

My suggestion is that you do a couple of tests your way and give this one a try as well: For both the root stock (that's the term I'm most familiar with) as well as the branch you wish to graft, choose the 'woodiest' parts on both.

The denser the 'bark' (for lack of the proper terminology) will allow you to make your cuts into the inner part of the plant which is where the 'grafting' will eventually take place.

Sorry for my bad verbage - I know what I mean! LOL

Hopefully it will make sense for you as well.

Cheers!

It had occurred to me to try something like this to keep myself under misdemeanor laws, yet, have several varieties available as a mom. I haven't gotten to this stage yet, but I am wondering if approach grafting might be better suited for cannabis?

Hi sunnydog,
I found this thread with a search and wanted to let you know I just grafted some female cuts onto some male root stock. When the plants sexed as male I just used my bypass pruners to chop the male off at the base where the stalk is a solid piece. I used a razor to split it open and then cut a wedge into the stem of the female cutting. I jammed the cutting into the slit of the root stalk and used some tape to seal it off.

Grafting Attempt

Here are some pics





Last year I got some approach grafts to work but I lost the plant to the borg. I will try again to create the ultimate mother with multi strain branches.

Good luck, I think grafting is an untaped resource.
