Pyracantha propagation question

Post  sayotefries on Tue Oct 01, 2013 2:47 am

Hello IBC,

I recently acquired cuttings and had no rooting hormone at hand. I had a mixture of hardwood and newer growths. Cut them about 4-6 inches, peeled off an inch on the bark, and stick it on the soil. Did anyone have any success planting cuttings without using rooting hormones?

Cheers!
Dan

Up here in the temperate zone, I'd have a hard time NOT getting Pyracantha cuttings to root, with or without hormones.  I always end up with too many.

In the tropics I'd think it's even easier.

Thanks Jim. Smile. What a relief. It's my first try at propagating pyracantha and would really like to make a bonsai out of it. Here in my area, semi-temperate, I've had no problems with bougainvillea but with azalea I either have to marcot it or use hormones.

Regards,
Dan
