How To Grow Trees From Twigs

OMG! Why didn’t someone tell me earlier that I could also grow my trees this way. I mean in the past we have looked at how to grow mango tree from seed and how to grow lychee trees from seed. I mean both methods work but it seems to me that growing trees from twigs, maybe a tad bit easier.

I will not go as far as saying this works for any tree, but it sure seems to work for a lot of them. What I love about this method is its simplicity. Often when you try to grow trees, especially fruit trees from seed, sometimes they do not germinate.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • tree branch
  • knife
  • hammer
  • plastic bottle
  • rooting hormone (optional)

The first step which involves picking the right branch and preparing it is very important. Just make sure that the branch is straight and all the leaves as well as buds have been removed. Chop your branch into pieces at least 8 inches long that will fit into your plastic bottle.

The branches go into the bottle, with at least 2 inches of water in it. Only then can you screw on the cap. Now all you have to do is wait for about 14 days, every few days unscrew the cap to allow fresh air in. When you start seeing some shoots and fluffy growth on the branch the twig will be ready for transplanting into the soil.
