I have used Parafilm M for 25 not like the Parafilm 'grafting
That said, I use Parafilm ONLY to seal in moisture...It does NOT provide
any significant support strength, so I always overwrap the graft union with
at least a couple of wraps of masking tape...or, more frequently, masking
tape and then a rubber band.
