Propagating 'Fortuniana' and grafting/budding to it

I've been "threatening" for years to make a series of instructional videos on how we work with 'Fortuniana' at Florida Southern College, since so many people seem to be interested. So today was the day! Our methods are pretty much "standard" for commercial nursery production in Florida, and they work well for us. Enjoy!

    On another thread someone had asked about rootstock from UC Davis. I've never used it, but Cori Anne did a couple of years ago and had great success rooting it in NCal. Never did hear how her grafting experiment turned out though. : (( Thank you for the excellent resources, MM.
