Do you have a grafted cannabis plant? Have you had one before? Tell us about your experiences in our cannabis growers forum, we would love to hear from you.
There are many techniques you can use when growing cannabis to make things more interesting. Cannabis plant grafting, is a technique of sticking multiple cannabis strains together, onto one plant. This is will bring you a beautiful plant with different flowers on each branch. But is cannabis plant grafting worth it?
Now you have both sites prepared, it is time to start grafting them together. Make sure the area is clean, and all of you equipement is ready and close by. Once you have begun, you want the process to be done quickly, and efficiently.
You must first choose a cutting that you will use to graft to your cannabis plant. When looking out for a cutting, you should consider a few things;
Have tape ready, as when the two branches make contact, you want to stick them together straight away. Line the two end up, and apply a thin layer of tape.
After a few days, the branches should be healed and you can remove the tape. Do this gently of course, as the stem may be fragile. Cannabis plant grafting is a very easy technique. As long as you follow the above steps, and be patient, you should have a multi strain cannabis plant.
You can add multiple strains to one plant by grafting. It is a simple procedure, and can easily done, the main tool you will need, is patience.
Take the size of both stems into consideration here. Make sure they are as close as possible to the same size. Find out what branch you would like to use and begin remove it.

Cannabis plant grafting, is a technique "grafting" multiple cannabis strains together, on one plant. The plant is then kept as a mother, or flowered.
Then carefully place your plastic bag over the whole branch, spray inside and seal gently around the base to hold in moisture.. It is very important the surface of the bag touches the leaf as little as possible, so pull it apart to create a microclimate with plenty of space around the branch inside the bag.
Also I suggest having a few test runs on a spare plant first, as Grafting is a technique that has more potential for failing than cuttings. It is fiddly and takes a little practice, but nothing worth doing ever comes easy.
Breeders looking for some fun could graft together several different female strains with a hardy stud male plant on there too, making a single plant capable of self pollination, without introducing any undesirable hermaphrodite traits either. This multi-plant could fit into a single plant space, as opposed to a whole room, and allow the fastest way to get many different new crosses in one crop. If you only used one male strain, and kept track of your different female stems, you could know exactly what each cross comes out as. You would only get one stems worth of seeds from each strain of course, but unless you are looking to sell them in bulk, it should be more than ample to get some stellar new genetics!
Grafting is an ancient method of joining two different plants together, to grow different fruits or flowers from the same root stock. It is also the secret weapon against low legal plant counts. Grafting allows you to grow several different strains on the same plant, while keeping each strain’s genetics pure. Cool eh?
When you are selecting two different strains to graft together, it is important to choose strains with similar flowering times. We all know the importance of giving your plants a final flush with pure water for a week or two, so by matching the flowering length it allows you to flush the whole plant at the same time without causing a nutrient deficiency on the longer flowering strain.
It is possible to make several Grafts at the same time. I have sucessfully grafted three different strains on to a Scion at the same time, but perhaps trying too many at once might stress the Scion too much. Probably better to get a couple of successful grafts on first before adding even more strains.
We all have strains we would love to try, but are reluctant to commit to growing ourselves due to famously small yields (Urkle, OG Kush, Mendo Purps, Girl Scout Cookies to name but a few). Now you can start a feminized seed, wait until she has a few leaf sets, then graft her on to your regular strain. You can then harvest a single branch of the desired bud, and if it’s as great as you hoped, you can choose to grow more. If it’s not as amazing as you expected, you haven’t wasted time and effort bringing a whole plant to fruition for something that ‘aint all that!
Now choose the donor branch on strain two, that you want to graft on to the Scion. You will need to take a vigorous healthy cutting with a few different leaf internodes. Ideally approximately 12 cm long, but shorter cuttings work well too. Give the donor plant a nice spray first, and cut it when still wet.
You could also place the whole plant in a well sealed mini-greenhouse to keep humidity up, but in my experience the process works better when the humidity tent is only on the relevant grafted branch. No point in interrupting the rest of the plant’s respiration processes, and in the time the graft takes to set, you may have caused some healthy leaves to rot from too much humidity.
