Here's a little photo log which helps demonstrate the process

Use 10% solution of 10ml hydrogen peroxide to 90ml of water for tissue prep. Concentrations higher than that can cause tissue damage and negate any benefits - same with alcohol. Betadine might be fun to try.

Use alcohol (or flame) to clean instruments

Takes 14 days before the donor can be removed
Earlier than that and the scion suffers

Another trick is to dock all of the unnecessary foliage off of the scion when cutting off its Mom
Just like taking cuttings
The scion needs to be "structurally sound" - a big canopy load will drag them down

Then, I just wait until the graft begins to split the Parafilm
The growing tissue rips right through the lab film when it's strong enough.

very interesting stuff. im curious about its applications in other species.

is this a technique you developed or a term youve dubbed? a quick google search of "relay grafting" only finds 3 pages with this one included.

i couldnt even imagine being able to continusly sample several different buds from one rootstock. keep the mom alive and you could have an endless supply or graft multipule plants togather to thwart those pescky MMJ laws for the amount of plants you can have growing at one time!!

Hey Myc, any updates?

I found the technique is also called ''approach grafting''
Ppl have used this to make some pretty cool looking sycamore trees.

joining different plants, so you could have rootstalk with many different strains, best use would be med grower with limits on number of plants allowed

I'm really glad this has generated some interest.

Yes - get this idea out there - post wherever - share w/ whomever

This is totally my idea
One day while cutting firewood - saw a couple of branches "mended" together in the trees I was clearing.

I had been playing with grafts prior to that
I was trying to use typical cut and clone techniques and everything failed
Wilting was hard to control with a cut scion

So I thought to myself.......
Why even cut the scion to begin with?
How about leaving everything live until the "mating" has occurred
Hence.....the word relay - like handing off the baton in a relay race

Sorry I've been so sparse lately - my computer is dead so I have to borrow where I can
Enjoy the idea and put it to work

As for a limit to the number of strains.......
How big of a veg cabinet do you have? LOL

This is a fantastic idea, and I found this thread at a very opportune time. It looks like you are grafting onto a very sturdy plant, have you tried it on younger/smaller ones with success? Could we remove a limb from the receiving plant to compensate for the new addition, as to not over extend the smaller root system of a younger plant?

I ask these questions because I intend to try this asap from seed, after i figure out sex.

Thanks for the great info!
