Apparently there were some exciting rituals involved.

You don't really need to. There is a dial on the bottom that makes the print larger or smaller.

I found it and uploaded the ritual and am sending you via email the link now.

And in the mean "have you ever heard what makes auxin?" Auxin is a universal plant hormone and through the link it appears that it is in constant supply as a process of "dying cells" such as xylem cells conversion into wood.

Thanks Rooney,

My brother found it while looking for palindromes.  I thought someone here might be amused by it.

Well!  I knew I was doing something wrong!

In my case, I find that a blood sacrifice is helpful.  Each year during grafting, I provide some blood from my thumb.  It's not intended.  I always seem to slip up at some point and cut myself.  Not as interesting as the link, but seems to work.

Some of my grafts are growing fast now.  Some are quite slow.  Fast:  Plum, kiwi, some apples.  Slow:  quince, some other apples.  One thing that was interesting, I think, is that the Northpole that I put onto Bud9, the ones that I planted into the ground are growing faster, while the ones that I planted in half gallon containers are stalled.  I don't know why that is.

My yard is visible to passersby and neighbors.  I will have to stick to bloodletting as my method to stimulate graft success.Laugh
