Ichang papeda and harvey lemon are not compatible
« on: August 25, 2019, 03:21:31 PM »

 I have tried to graft 4 ichang papeda scionwoods on a harvey lemon tree. All 4 failed.

 Harvey lemon grafted on Poncirus has pretty high rate of success. Growth of harvey lemon scionwood on poncirus was very vigorous at first, but then after 1 month it slowed down probably due to the slow growth of the poncirus rootstock.

 Ichang papeda grafted on Poncirus has pretty high rate of success.

It might have to do with differing rates of growth. Try grafting Ichang papeda on something slower growing.

I heard that when the scion grows much slower than the rootstock, graft incompatibility is likely to show up. Sometimes it's not apparent immediately and it can fail after many months, seemingly inexplicably.
