I voted n° 7, but it is the sentence that works for me, for my plants in my collection.
I think other persons should do what they consider best for their plants! I rispect other ideas, of course!

Hi, I usually graft a part of all my sowings. I do, to see, in a short time the appearance of the plants and flowers that are usually cultivars or hybrids. The rest of the plantings I try to keep her own roots. Sometimes I do it to save plants that are dying. The rootstock may vary, according to what I then do with the plant, keep it as a mother plant or take it out of his roots. But there may be other reasons for which to graft depending on the case, even though I love having plants  own roots when possible.

I graft mainly cultivars, incl my own crosses, and plants of some too slow growing genera. Or the plants that are too difficult to grow in my conditions. Or the plants I want to propagate rapidly. Or... well, I find a reason if just want to graft.  ;) Fe this year I grafted Opuntia humifusa and O. fragilis onto O. ficus-indica - for to have more grafting stocks. I had hoped that O. ficus-indica also is suitable for astros - but it was not and thus, I regrafted the two freely growing plants with other opuntias.

Thank you for your kind offer! Nevertheless, I already have quite a lot of them myself - pads from grafted or own-rooted plants as well as seedlings.  :)
