Default My Florida tomato grafting experiment

So I've tried grafting tomatoes 5 times already with horrible results........ until now! After some trial and error and many many online guides, I found a decent technique. Nothing earth shatteringly different. I found the key elements are the dome chamber - johnnyseeds - to keep good moisture, matching the angles of the cuts as precisely as possible, starting kinda earlier than I thought at about two to three weeks with 2.0 mm grafting clips from johnnyseeds, which seem to be smaller and lighter, and not keeping them in the dark for too long - only about 3 days. I also used grow lights and did the healing indoors where I could control for temperature. I got a 9/24 success rate. It's better than zero![IMG][/IMG]
