We shall discuss a new result that relates grafting, which are certain deformations of complex projective structures on a surface, to the Teichmuller geodesic flow in the moduli space of Riemann surfaces. A consequence is that for any fixed Fuchsian holonomy, such geometric structures are dense in moduli space.
