This time I stacked (2) rockwool cubes, so I'm rooting only in rockwool.

You should save some to try in winter, when they usually take cuttings.

Guess I am being blessed on overload, this year.

Congratulations Dax. Your sports are choice.

I was thinking the same thing as Sam. I wonder if somehow these variegated shoots formed in response to your adverse conditions this summer. I've never heard of such a phenomenon before though. Anyone else know of particular environmental conditions that might favor mutation?

Best of luck rooting!

Hey...nice knife Dax!
Do you use it often and did it work out for grafting? If so, what is your favorite blade size?

And, to the subject of your post, beautiful yellow sport.
We're all rooting for you! ;)

I don't know at all, Alex. I've never come across any studies about bud mutations as a result of environment.

Heya Barbara, I don't know anything other than blade #10. I like it, but, I'd prefer one that's longer. The area the blade snaps into pretty well takes away 1/2 of the blade rendering that much of it unusable. I do like #3 scalpels though.

Here's hoping they root, here as well.
