Propagation technique where the tissues of one plant are inserted into those of another.

is a propagation technique where the tissues of one plant are inserted into those of another, so that the vascular tissue joins, creating one living plant. The two plants are typically of different cultivars or even different related species. This technique is typically used to propagate difficult-to-grow plants (e.g. some cacti), or to combine plant properties (e.g. fruit tree grafting where dwarf rooting stock is combined with a larger variety to force it to grow as a smaller tree).

Use this tag for all questions about grafting - including how to do it, and problems and complications (e.g. sports) which may result later on after the plant has established itself.
