I wont go into cuttings, grafting, air layering, and agar cultures... It's very complex and I don't feel like typing an entire essay about what each prorogation method is.
Cuttings, grafting, air layering aren't really complex, I taught high school kids how to do those. They are just simple Asexual propagation methods for horticulturists to use depending on plant variety. Like with most fruit trees one would use grafting.

Why would my answer mean anything to you?  Google is easy.  Maybe you should use it to look up The Scientific Method.

It's the monitor lizard, by the way, which I actually already knew.  Thank you, Nature Channel!

Why do you want to graft apples? Is there a particular taste that you like in an apple? Many Citrus trees are from grafts because of the fruit that the tree yields. Grafting can also be bad. Citruses are prone to a lot of viruses, by grafting you are also prolonging the life of the virus. Many orchards just destroy the trees if they're infected.

A lot of people don't understand that a seed from an apple will produce a tree, but the tree will not produce a fruit like it's parent.

Just don't cut you fingers off, would be the first step, lol It is a little tricky at first getting the right depth and all to make a good connection. I would just say to get use to doing your cuts and getting the right angles on practice branches, before trying to do the real thing. Youtube is great for the grafting videos that show you how it's done. I would watch a lot of those and if your still having trouble contact your local Ag Extension Agent for help, I'm sure they could get someone that could help you.

Agar is a nightmare!!.. You must have a clean lab to work with Agar. All kinds of molds or bacteria can cause havoc for you. I cloned a Button Mushroom once by taking a piece of the flesh and placing it on malt agar one tray turned completely white, while the other developed pink mold along with some mycelia from the flesh of the mushroom

I had university greenhouses and labs to work with when I was doing any of this.

Wrong.... Monitor Lizards and Komodo Dragons have bacteria in their saliva that can lead to a painful death if you are bitten. Not Venom... Think again:whis:

Yeah, that's why I want to graft, Doctor.

I take it you're not much of a gardener?
