Stenting is the process of grafting and rooting simultaneously. It is practiced on roses in the Netherlands. The word stenting comes from the contraction of the Dutch words "stekken" to strike a cutting and "enten" to graft.

By the time the graft union heals, the rootstock has a good sized root system for transplanting.

Stenting is done in high humidity boxes without mist where the temperature is controlled. The graft union is held together with grafting tape or with fasteners.
