Tips on rooting wax jambu
I'm attempting to root some cuttings from my wax jambu tree. Does anyone have tips on doing so? I saw some old postings where some members here have gotten wax jambu to root.
I didn't want to use a rooting hormone as the label says it should only be used for ornamental trees, and not for fruits.
Also don't know where to find willow trees in southern california to brew a natural concoction.
Are there any tips for successful rooting?
- particular time of the year to take a cutting
- length and age of the branch?
- remove or leave some leaves?
- type of soil to use
- how long does it typically take to see if you are successful? will you know by new leaf growth or have to check the roots itself?
