New Science: Growing Plants From Branches

To Whom this may concern:

 

Seem to be able to grow apple fruit trees from branches.

 

Place the fruit tree branch in a little water in a glass vase soon as

 

possible after being cut from the tree.

 

The water level is about 4 centimetres deep to keep the stem

 

base where the cut from the tree was made submerged.

 

Add a some small acquarium pebbles or sterile pebbles into the water

 

for a mineral source. Sometimes may add a few drops of fruit juice, and

 

a little commercial plant food powder to the water.

 

The fruit juice may add some nutrients to the

 

water, but may not be needed. After being cut in winter,

 

in about three to four months small green

 

leaves showed at the tip of the branch. The length to thickness

 

ratio of the branch perhaps should be long enough to supply food to

 

the leaf buds on the upper branch section.

 

Place the branch where there is much sunlight. May need to replace

 

the water in the vase and clean the branch from mold a few times a month.

 

The branch still needs to grow some roots at its stem base.
