Monday I grafted 10 cells as my first attempt at grafting. I had a starter ready for them. I was hoping to get at least 1 cell started but they started 6 out of 10. All 6 are really good size. I know the 4 that were not started were questionable when I put them in the cups. I think I damaged them removing them from the cells but was trying to use only the tinyest larvae. I was using a chinese grating tool and had trouble telling when I had scooped the larvae just right or went too far and maybe sqaushed them against the far cell wall. I'm guessing more practice will help.
