I need to cage some cells as they will emerge whilst I am away this weekend.

I have made the frames for more cages but the plastic excluder I was planning on using to cover the frames with has just proved too brittle.

I have some plastic introduction tubes which having a stopper at one end will accept the cell plug at the other and whilst they will need to be spaced between my existing wooden cages they will do the job. They need to be between the wooden frame cages by reason of not allowing any virgin contact with another. Not a good idea that....

And so I can get the job done this afternoon and some more grafting done too.
