Interesting. I wonder what would happen if you did not cut any stem but left both root systems intact. Would the buds on those branches be larger from extra sap, or smaller from competition, or no different?

 

Good thread, glad it got bumped.

 

I have wanted for a few years now to make a 'tree of 40 fruits' or similar.

Of course now I want to make a mother of 40 strains ;)

That's it! The original motivation was to try and create a multi strain mum to keep plant numbers down. But as the mums were bonsai already, it was such a fiddly process I was only really successful the once. With a bigger plant, and using fresh growth, I think you'd enjoy a much higher success rate!

 

@MicroDoser, I think if you kept the two root stocks, the final phase of the graft (the new donor plant drawing from the hosts roots) would not happen, so all you'd really end up with is two plants stuck together. 

 

When you cut the donor plant from it's root stock it behaves like taking a cutting. You have a period about a day where the plant goes limp while it tries to continue uptake. But once it starts drawing from the new source, it starts to pick back up and then springs into life.

Gotcha. No uber buds from having many plants connected together in a web then ;)

Well... I can't really say no! It may be possible! I mean I highly doubt it, but then I haven't tried! Only one way to know for sure! ;)
