seedlings were grown under three treatments: in polystyrene trays with 128 or 200 cavities, or in plastic bags (7.8 × 12.4 cm). The percentage of graft survival was determined 6 d after grafting whereas seedling vigor was assessed 9 and 12 d after grafting

rootstock could be harnessed by the plant to improve current grafting methods by providing sufficient energy to increase graft survival, rootstock rooting, and overall grafted transplant quality. The first experiment outlined in this article was designed to
