Decided to Graft The Kemaman Figs Trees !!!

After a number of time looking at those Kemaman Figs trees I finally decided to go ahead in grafting their branches.

The whole idea is to get the selected branches for rooting and once ready cut them for transfer.

I have tried using this technique and it works very well.

The only disadvantage is that you need to wait for at least 1.5 - 2 months before those roots are formed.

All you need are the followings:

1) A roll of aluminum foil (used to cook those fish).

2) A pack of mos like materials. (I got it this pack from a garden equipment selling shop).

3) A pail.

4) Water

5) A sharp knife.

6) Cable ties.

What you need to do is to get the mos materials wet.  Open its wrapper and put it into a pail.  Wet the mos for about 5 minutes.

Break the wet mos so that they are not in one clump.

As for the aluminum foil cut them into 10" X 1 foot.  Fold them into two.

Now get them to those selected trees.

Locate the most healthy branches and cut its skin about 1 inch long one round.

Once you have removed its skin you can now pick up a small amount of the wet mos and spread it on the foil.

Wrap the mos and the foil around the cut section.

Wrap it nicely and tie the two ends with cable tie.

Once that is done you need to wait for about 1-5-2 months to check if those roots are ready for transplant.

It will be good to cut the bottom part of the wrapped branch and transfer it to a pot.

Water it for a number of days.

You need to remove those leaves and if it was too long cut the branch to about 1.5 feet.

Once young shoots grew you can transfer onto the ground.

Have a nice figs replanting work.
