When digging citrus from the ground it turned out that he sprouted roots through the bag into the ground and a piece of root came off. Well do not disappear as the root system ready - decided to cultivate the root to the stalk tangerine
It is amazing how small and unconventional grafts can work. I have grafted rootstock and scion so small that I had to use tweezers to complete it. So small it was uncomfortable and a pain to wrap. But it can be done. I have experimented with root grafting and have found success only if the scion had at least part of a growing leaf on it. I suppose that if one had a magnification system it would be a more comfortable process....but for now I will continue with conventional sizez and procedures

The formation of the crown of the citrus by grafting. Initially, the goal was to create a fork - by grafting 2 cuttings behind the bark. But different force growth has identified leader - pomelo - he became Central barrel. The orange stalk became a side branch. Thus, you can create tiers and branches on a tree of different varieties.
Grafting multiple rootstocks to a single tree or how to get rid of the rootstock trifoliata. The orange from Agrumi Lenzi suffers from chlorosis and does not develop well. The reason is that the trifoliate rootstock is not suitable for alkaline soil. Last year, an additional pomelo rootstock was grafted into the orange stump. The growth of the orange improved, but the chlorosis did not disappear. The rootstock of the trifoliate is cut off from the tree and thrown away. At this place, the macrophyll rootstock is grafted behind the bark in the stem. To preserve the crown without pruning, I grafted a little higher another rootstock-grapefruit.
((Прививка нескольких подвоев к одному дереву или как избавится от подвоя трифолиаты. Апельсин из Agrumi Lenzi страдает хлорозом и плохо развивается. Причина - подвой трифолиата не пригодна для щелочного грунта. В прошлом году в штамб апельсин привил дополнительный подвой помело. Рост апельсина улучшился, но хлороз не исчез. Подвой трефа отрезается от дерева и выбрасывается. На это место прививается за кору в штамб подвой макрофилла. Для сохранения кроны без обрезки я привил немного выше еще один подвой - грейпфрут.))
Samodekin, interesting thread. It has never came to my mind, of grafting a small scion onto a root. I don't think I have never needed to do it. . However, thank you for your thread, and pictures. Very interesting indeed.
