    That probably depends on how you do it.  I use only parafilm with good 
success.  Non-adhesive electrical tape works good too and may be easier to 
obtain on short notice.

    When I teach grafting we do whip-and-tongue and cleft grafting only 
because I have about a 95% success rate compared to a poor success rate 
doing budding.  Budding only gets a brief mention in my classes.
