There were certainly some nuggets in that video I wasn't aware of before.  Thanks for sharing!

I'm not sure that this is approach grafting though.  Its more traditional/cleft grafting ...if I'm remembering my terms correctly.

Also, check out this thread from a little while ago on more parafilm grafting goodness:

Bwayne,
thanks for the info. I assumed, wrongfully, that the parafin tape was the same as floral tape which I have a ton of because i used to work at a florist. it has the same principles as it, yea? but he clearish property of the tape allows light to reach the graft.

It is called "parafilm", you can buy it on Amazon, http://www.amazon.com/Parafilm-PARAFILM-2-X-250/dp/B001D9IIMY/ref=pd_sbs_indust_1, for example, it works very well. Matsu posted a thread on using this technique a year or so ago. Works well for pines and junipers (and possibly others?).

Love the stuff.  Also works great to bandage broken branches.

I don't believe parafilm and flor[ist|al] tape are very similar ...at least not for this application.  Parafilm is much stretchier where I haven't seen that kind of "give" with the floral tape.

Great. Wayne, sorry I totally missed your post explaining where to find the parafilm grafting procedure.

Just in case you want a little clearer shot of the cuts, here's my video of Brent using essentially the same technique.

Anyone know if this technique will work for shimpaku junipers? If so would we have to wrap the whole entire scion in parafilm tape? I'm trying to avoid the method of using baggies with moss. Thanks!

not sure but I have seen where there is no baggie or paraffin tape and the entire juniper is put in a greenhouse or small make shift tent to act as a greenhouse

Yea I was just trying to bypass having to do any kind of after care. I was wondering if perhaps the parafilm tape would be enough. Perhaps I should just try it and report my findings!
