The Q&A Archives: Citrus cuttings

Question: I took a cutting from my neighbors lemon tree and tangelo tree and was wondering if they will propagate like some other plants, or am I wasting valuable time? I moistened them and dipped the cutting end in the powder stuff before putting them in miracle grow potting soil and a small clay pot.

Answer: Citrus tree cuttings don't always root well, but I think yours are off to a good start. With any luck at all they will root and you will have some brand new trees. Hope they take!
