It's grafting time and I don't feel like doing the ebay/google job of finding who is selling parafilm for a reasonable price. But, I don't need 25 yards of it if you know what I mean. Any opinions? Thanks
Hi ED, i dont know anything about grafting. Ive seen itin video were a man used a wide diameter rubber band stretched tightly wound around graft and knotted i thought was interesting.
Another i saw used tar looking like pruning seal.
Here is a link where used is some sort of clear film maybe parafilm i dont know what that looks like the parafilm and he mentions raphia also can be used which i think but not sure is a type of palm leaf?
Anyways in the link i show it mentions do not touch the underside because it can infect it and make it fail.
Its a llink to Mundani site and should come up in English as i used a translator.

I recently ordered parafilm from Fedco. $2 per 1/2" x 90' roll.

Sent you an email.
I use rubber splicing tape. Its available at Home Depot. No ordering or waiting for a package. The tape is a type of electrical tape. Rubber NOT vinyl. Works great! Check out the link for the pic, not to order.

Thanks for all the help guys, I appreciate it. Nana, no e-mail yet
I don't use parafilm, I graft and tie the scion up using rubber ties. Then I apply wax on the whole thing to keep it from drying.
Please look at this for parafilm, currently @ $ 3.50 for 1" wide 30 yard length. (Pick and paste the URL):
Since I am back from travel, I can send you some 1/2". Let me know if you still want/need it.
Thanks for the link. I wish I had seen it sooner. I guess I didn't search well enough to find 1".
