Hi I was hoping someone could tell me if i cut the smallest branch off
Frangapani tree how do I start a new tree from that, it is the softe
twig/branch that 7 or so smaller twigs come off which all have flowers
Ive been told that it can be done by planting straight into soil. o
does it have to be one of the larger branches(harder ones) is ther
more to it than that? I presume so! Thanx for your help.
You must live in one of the warmer zones to grow Frangipani Scotty. I
had great luck cutting off soft limbs and planting directly in the soil
with them. I grew them when we lived in Saudi Arabia and had the white,
yellow, and red (pink) flowering ones. Scented the patio up nicely too.
Strange thing living in a desert and grew orchids and tropical trees as
a hobby for five years. Long as you had water anything would grow. Good
luck with your frangipani.
We've had great luck just placing directly in potting soil (not
dirt/garden soil) but making certain not to overwater as it could rot
and also not physically disturbing it as the little hair-like roots can
break off. I think a lot of people root in water first. And some sources
claim the broken end must dry out first.
