Question about Propagation

    1 responses

Sort:
Tola starts with ...
Can a bread fruit tree grow aptly from stem/branch cutting?
I bought one from an old far neigbours farm here in Edo State, Nigeria.
I planted it on a lateral soil during the rainy season just 5days ago. When will I see the first new shoot?
Should I keep faith in if that it will grow?

I don't like your chances but it's worth trying. There seems to be a bit of genetic variation in breadfruits and some can be propagated by methods that don't work for others.

In ideal conditions in a hot wet season you might see shoots after about a weekandahalf and roots could form around about then. Or they might not.

Try to get a root cutting or a sucker. If the parent doesn't sucker you are more likely to have success with a cutting.

Is "e;lateral soil"e; a typo for laterite? If so, keep it well watered at all times. It will probably need some sort of shade structure too.
