Got my shiranui bud wood this morning so went to a few home improvement stores and a nursery looking for some good rootstock and man were the Pickings slim tons of Meyers and Mexican likes but looked like their own roots I ended up buying a 5' trovita orange on C-35 rootstock the grafting went good the bark was slipping so I decided to T bud graft the c35 with 3 buds I was hoping to get a much smaller tree but it had the nicest straightest trunk so I got it.
