Grafted obesum scions on arabicum plant bloom after 2 months.

ltran54(9)August 13, 2012

I accidently grafted 5 obesum scions on an arabicum plant on June 11 of this year, and for a surprised all 5 scions took. 2 scions from my "triple slash" slowly grow, but 2 from "double pink" quickly grow leaves and have buds. One is going bloom soon. I took these pictures on 8-8-12 and I will take more pictures tomorrow.

The bloom gets a little tear, but that is okay. This took in early morning.

This took at night.

Marie, you are amazing with your grafting skills! What an extraordinary plant you've created.

I wonder now if straight-grafting little scion nubs like that with scotch tape would work for hard-to-root plumerias, too?

Jandey, I never graft plumeria, so I don't know very much about it.
Please let us know if you ever try to graft plumeria.
Marie
