Ficus tree grafting
I have some ficus trees in pots about 3 ft. tall. I would like to graft some branches onto limbs that are sparse. That is, to make the plant more bushy.
I have made some grafts using a slanted cut & inserting a wedge-cut branch in the cut & sealing with toilet-wax-ring wax. Should I remove some leaves from the new branch graft ? It's only been a few days since I did some grafts, so there's no results yet. Also, I have in the past done some braiding of 3 plants.
These have been done while starting with young cuttings, & have turned out well. I don't have a *green thumb* by a long shot, but trying !
