Clear the aea of the trunk to be grafted of thorns and leaves. Clean the trunk with 10% bleach water solution. I scrub with a tooth brush. I also clean under my fingernails and fingers.

Grafted tree is outside with the main trunk broken over but alive.  The main trunks foliage is in full sun as well as the new grafted shoot.  the shoot takes dominance because it is the highest part of the tree and the main trunk is badly injured but still producing food for the whole tree.

Tree has a 5 gallon reflective white bucket fitted with a 13 watt daylight CFL to provide heat and bright light to the tree where I want most of the new growth.

New growth splits easily from the trunk. The cable is to prevent splitting while the tree is quit vulnerable.
