Here are a few Scions I received from Alex at Tropical Acres Farms just yesterday.

They look Good.

I am hoping for a 30 - 40% take. The weather is cooler now but if it warms up again my chances increase.

Awesome pics !

Thanks for your help! , the scion in the video didnít take , but I grafted 2 additional scions on the same tree using the same tool , the only thing different is , Iím using rubber bands to get a good snug hold .

I use white Vinyl electrical tape to wrap the scion connection at the bottom. Not the cheap stuff at home depot.

It can stretch and form a tight union of the scion and rootstock. If rubber bands work for you that's cool. In any event the tighter the connection the better chance of a cambium union.

It's a number game regarding grafts. Many Variables including weather. In Florida, you have nice hot weather.

Here in California today our high was 71, low 62. That sucks for growing subtropicals. We need more heat.

Good Luck

My favorite vinyl electrical tape is Plymouth Premium 37.  It stretches very nicely, holds tight and leaves no residue.

I bought mine at an electronic supply shop for $5 a roll.  It is made in Spain according to the label.
