Brown can be the most beautiful colour

Standard

Enjoy browns as you didn’t see them before… as Moorea hibiscus browns.

One thing is true: In hybridization we work only with probability. By taking into consideration the genetic potential of each flower, we judge in our spirit and our mind if a cross could be favorable or not. Each hybridizer has its own judgment and way of doing things. As with colors, it is impossible to see two identical hybridizers in terms of their quest, direction, and above all, results. Let’s take the case of maroon color. If we cross maroon colors very often, the possibilities of obtaining maroon flowers will be increased, but there’s no certainty that the results in this direction will be satisfactory within what we look for. In all case, the more experiments one does with the flowers, the easier it will be to find the direction one is looking for.

Grafting and Marcottage – 2 in 1 Method, by Charles Atiu

Standard

Taking as starting points the articles on Grafting (https://hibiscusaddict.wordpress.com/category/grafting/) and about Marcottage /Air Layering (https://hibiscusaddict.wordpress.com/category/air-layering/) explained by Master Charles Atiu on this blog, he is presenting us his combined method of grafting and marcottage – 2 in 1.

Here is the procedure, as Master Atiu presents it:

“This method has as goal to gain precious time and effort for those who want to obtain new flowering plants in a very short time.

A. First of all, choose a plant and perform a graft on it (https://hibiscusaddict.wordpress.com/category/grafting/). This is the first step and is compulsory to be followed.

B. Verify if the grafting was sucessfull by looking for new tiny buds 🙂

C. After this, use the Marcottage method (https://hibiscusaddict.wordpress.com/category/air-layering ) in order to obtain a new grafted plant in a few weeks.

B1: When the marcotte produced its own roots you can cut it from the mother-plant and pot it in its own pot.

It is very important to follow the steps as indicated, meaning first: GRAFT, and second MARCOTTAGE.

Here are some pictures with a plant after only 6 weeks in its own pot.

The huge advantage of this procedure is that in between stages you have to do nothing, because the mother plant feeds by itself the new graft/marcotte. One must only wait for the marcotte to produce its own roots in order to obtain a new plant having the desired characteristics.

This method can be tried by anyone. Even a beginner can obtain very good results, but only if the procedure is followed as described above. If you do the things backwards, and practice the marcottage first, the danger for the marcotte to cease grows considerably, as long as the procedure is performed on an already weakened plant section.

A new plant obtained by the combined procedure “grafting/marcottage” can produce flowers even before being potted in its own pot, but as a general rule a plant obtained by this method starts to bloom in only about a month after being potted in its own pot.

This reproduction method allows me to obtain easily thousands of clones, practically in no-time (and those who graft plants will understand what I mean!)

For those who want to try and experiment this method, I wish them all good luck!
