Storyboard Text

  • Hello, Ms. Stella! Yes I actually do need your help!
  • Hello, Mr. Santos! I'm Stella. I heard you need some help to propagate your mango orchard.
  • Don't worry, Mr. Santos! I'm here to teach you the Grafting method.
  • So, what should I do first Ms. Stella?
  • First, you need to get your right materials. A grafting knife, grafting tape, a sterilizer, and a plastic bag.
  • Always remember to sterilize all your grafting materials.
  • Got it! What should I do next?
  • Remove the leaves from the scion. Wrap the fresh cut scion in a wet newspaper then transport them right away in the place of grafting.
  • Next, you have to find a healthy, strong, free of pests root. It should be at least 25cm tall and thick as a pencil.
  • Next, you have to cut the scion at the 10cm length with a grafting scissors.
  • Okay! What's the next step?
  • Next, cut the mango rootstock seedling horizontally at a height of about 6 – 8 cm above soil level by using a pruning scissor or sharp knife.
  • Use a scalpel to cut the scion in a v-shape.
  • After that, insert the scion as deep as possible into the rootstock and align the two parts.
  • That seems easy. What's after that?
  • After inserting them, it's now time to enclose the union by putting grafting bandage. Make sure its very tight.
  • Then, cover the scion once more with the bandage but a little bit loose this time.
  • Remember to not cover the terminal bud to let it grow and produce leaves.
  • Okay, I will take note of all the things you said.
  • Yes it's easy! Thank you for your help Ms. Stella.
  • After that, just let it heal. Once it got healed, remove the bandages. And continue to take care of it.
  • It's easy right?
  • Sure! Glad to help.
