Grafted Bonsai

Grafting is a method through which you can remove an entire branch from a shrub, so that the rooted branch becomes a new plant.

To prepare a graft you need a good amount of moss, a small box, metal wire, plastic film and a small amount of rooting hormone.

Put the moss in a container with water so that it is perfectly moistened through.

With the aid of a grafting knife make a cut in the cortex, in the area where you want to root the branch; along the cut completely remove the bark that covers the stem, creating a bare ring at least 5 - 7 cm across, which must be perfectly clean.

Using a clean brush sprinkle the bare wooden ring with rooting hormone.

Apply the damp moss carefully around the cut.

Press with your hands to make it adhere to the wood and to compact it; using the metal wire to ensure that it remains firmly in position over the cutting.

Wrap the plastic film around the moss, fixed at the ends with another piece of wire.

For the rooting of the graft it is fundamental that the moss remain moist, so avoid leaving openings in the plastic film, especially in the lower part of the bag created around the graft.
