Why you shouldn't graft during the winter!

Recommended Posts

Did this graft about 8 months ago during the winter .. what can I say I was new to grafting and was super keen!

things went south fast.... but someone told me to cut the rot out like cutting the bad bit out of a potato?

here is my story in pictures and the subsequent recovery!

enjoy!

learn from my mistakes! my first ever graft and my first post to this forum! I hear your a good bunch of lads.

the rootstock was unrooted and the peyote/trich were in dormancy... I have since learned my lesson!

what if a person spends their entire winter in a controlled environment of perfectly ideal temperature, humidity & lighting?

ya think it would be ok to graft in the winter then? :)

As you are learning, hands on experience is the best teacher of all, &
