Learn how to grow lemons from cuttings

Step by Step Instructions

Step 1: Take a lemon cutting from the plant where the node or leaf is protruding from.  This is where the lemon tree roots will form from the stem.

Step 2: Now remove the leaf so it will promote and grow roots.  Make sure the cutting has a couple leaves on them up top.  

Step 3:  Cut the existing leaves in half to help preserve energy and water loss.

Step 4:  Use a powder rooting hormone.  Dip the end of the cutting in the hormone powder and tap the excess off.

Step 5:  Take a planting pot with a potting mix of your choice.  Plant the lemon cutting into the soil. 

The key to this is keeping the soil moist. 

So if you are concerned about the soil drying out, place plastic wrap around the top of the pot without damaging the cutting.

After 4-8 weeks you will have roots and a brand new baby clone of your current lemon tree!
