You can't get much simpler - and cheaper - than a piece of cotton
string and some cow manure, fresh out of the cow.
Didja ever step in a cowpie that'd been lying out for a day or two or three?
Protective crust on the outside, but still nice & moist inside - and
other than Psilocybe mushrooms, you hardly ever see any sort of
fungal growth there.
If you're too put off by the thought of slathering cow manure on a
fresh graft, the inexpensive wax toilet ring gaskets (cheap, cheap)
are fairly soft, and make decent grafting wax that you don't even have to heat.
USDA Cold Zone 6
