Degrafting Cintia knizei

Post by fatich » Fri Jul 12, 2019 7:05 am

I dont like the way they grow and i would like to degraft them. Anyone experienced with degrafting Cintia knizei? Do they root easily or take time?
When i bought the plants they were already grafted and this shape.

I de-grafted one of mine last year. It had produced four heads after I decapitated the original single head. All four heads rooted successfully in a mineral substrate and flowered this year.

I would have said that it's a bit too late in the season to do it now but as I see you're in Turkey, there should still be time :grin:

Yes, I've also managed to root the heads of a plant that lost its roots. They are slow to root though.

Thanks for the answers.
Do you think they have enough water in their body? Because when i last watered them, one of them cracked on top. But when i squeeze the plant, its a little bit soft.
We have still hot days until october, should i cut them and from which part should I cut?
