    Default VIDEO: My second graft . . . .

    Just a short little video showing my second graft on the 5 day inspection. I took a look at this frame 24 hours after the graft and it looked like they had accepted 60% but in the last 4 days they gave up on two of them so 10 out of 20. I know that will improve with practice. The really big improvement is that the JZBZ cups are all packed full of royal jelly this time. Last graft was only about 3/4 of the cup.
