Step 4: Starting the healing process
     After you're done taping it down securely you want to take the plant and put it in a dark room for 2-3 days.  This helps it heal up.  Then introduce it back to light in the next week.  I keep the tape on the graft for about 2 weeks usually.  After this you can take it off, but be careful.  It should be stuck together by this point.  You may see the scion shrivel a little bit before it starts getting nutrients.  Don't worry! This is normal.   This type of graft can be kept permanently.

The quote above is from the columnar grafting section.

Have you tried various humidity situations when grafting globulars to pachanoi?

Kada seems to recommend about 50% humidity:

I tend not to use high humidity with Trich to Trich grafts but was wondering if it's different for globular to trichs.

Many Thanks,

This needs a major update. I will see if I can squeeze it in sometime soon.
