Re: Aylostera supthutiana HJ516

They hardly look like the same species. I can think the only reason for grafting is that a grafted offset could be sold within a couple of weeks of grafting whilst rooting a cutting with enough roots to sell would take about a year so a quick way to make money from offsets is to graft them and sell...

Re: Aylostera supthutiana HJ516

I know how much Ralph likes grafts so here's my one, acquired in the good old days of continental plant purchasing last summer after he drew my attention to this particular clone. Heaven knows why it's on a graft as it literally looks set to burst and so unnatural (it's in a 2.75" pot). I'm eagerly ...
