Pomegranate Cutting

Anonymous added on March 23, 2014 | Answered

I took a cutting from a pomegranate tree, treated it with a root hormone and planted it. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any new roots growing and the plant isn't budding leaves. However, the branches and trunk of the tree are still alive, as they are flexible and have the green bark underneath the brown stuff. Would you say the plant has a chance? I planted it in December and recently took it outside due to the better temperatures out.

    As long as you are seeing green and it's pliable, then yes, I would say the tree cutting has a chance of surviving. Just continue to care for it as you have and eventually it should begin putting out new growth.
