Millet, sions are doing good. The cuttings you send me are growing already. I made 4 grafts and they are all growing about 2 inches tall and one really took-off,4 inches.

Good to hear of your successful grafts.  Pretty soon you will have a forest over there.

Hope to live long enough to see for them to come to fruitation. My venture in citrus growing started a little late in life, long story.

The trees should fruit rather quickly, as the scions that I sent you all from  mature fruiting wood.

A picture of the Santa Teresa graft after only a few weeks, doing well.
Thanks Millet.

luak, I see you have the tree growing in a RootMaker air root pruning container.

Yes, i use those pots for most of my new grafts, first year, maybe the next year before repotting. I bought those pots on e/bay several years ago. I believe i bought 2 dozens. I love them. I have several grafts started as you can see in another picture.
