Your grafts seem to have taken well. I always try to use thicker stocks, because after 2 years the scion gets too heavy for the thin stock and brakes it.

Thanks!

@Christer, ornatum is not a real fast grower, but very resistent and produce very fast offsets.

@Strukto, the piece is a half tentacle (vertical cut). No roots there.

In the next season, I'll try other stocks.. :wink:
