I'm curious if you could graft cuttings onto a plant. I think the graft would take a week or 2 to make a strong connection and grow and then could you flip to flower and essentially have a plant that will flower out 2 different stains just like how you would do it with a fruit tree. 

another possibility could be if you were growing regular seeds and cloning to test for sex, say if you had a male amongst them could you cut off all growth points of the original plant and graft some female cuttings off the other seeds into the nodes of your previously male plant? I'm not sure what the male root ball would have on the female cuttings in the way of compatibility if there is a problem. 

cheers for any input, if I ever have the chance to even try grafting again I would, I'm also wondering if this would or could be faster then taking clones or could help saving space.

@bogan yes you can graft cuttings on to other plants not sure how long it takes but it definitely works. Theres plenty of YouTube video's showing the process I'm also not sure if the donor cutting will start taking on characteristics of the host plant.

I have grafted lots of fruit trees over the years, citrus, finger limes, grevilleas and other Australian natives which can be a real pain in the arse to get to strike.

In all cases the donor takes on its own characteristics. It is done the agricultural world to provide a more reliable and disease resistant rootstock to a better producing plant.  It would be wild to have a plant with 3 or 4 different cultivars on it. It would be great for smaller grows where you want a bit of variety every harvest

@naamk How would you prepare the donor piece? i mean would you treat it like a clone and cut the leaves in half or would you take them off leaving only the small growth node or nodes.

I think someone on there next harvest needs to try and graft a few cuttings into the rootstock of the plant they just harvested. I managed to to get a graft to take pretty quick and the donor was starting to look up but due to the extreme high stress the rootstock took so it didn't survive but evidence showed that it was plausible.

@stootie yes I have, I'm just trying to figure out a way that I could make it work better then cloning or have it where you keep a root ball alive and just keep grafting onto it in a perpetual grow style. I believe it could be done and if nobody beats me to it ill be sure to share my results when I get it done.

I would think a simple cut and shut would do. Not sure whether stripping foliage and increasing humidity would help or hinder mate

Another thing occurred to me of the benefit of having a mother plant with multiple cultivars would be good to reduce plant numbers. 

Did you read the guide up there ^ Bogan?

Seems pretty easy.

I used Teflon tape, the stuff that plumbers use to seal joints. The white stuff is thin the pink gas tape is thicker there is a bit of an art to get it to stay on
