I have an apple tree which needs to be cut down but it has a lovely bunch of mistletoe growing on it, can I save to another tree and if so how and would a plum tree do the same or does it have to be apple. Your help with this would be most welcomed. Regards Ollie Walton
My research only found information on reseeding the plant.
I know mistletoe can only be grown using trees because it is a parasite that lives off the nutrients of trees, but if I were to use a plant based food source such as maple syrup which is a natural sweetener made from tree sugars diluted to a 1/50 ratio to simulate a trees nutrients without a tree in pretty moss would it work or has it been tried yet?
You can grow these indoors, but it would be best to use a branch from any of the tree hosts that it prefers. This article will give you more information on how to do this: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/mistletoe/how-to-grow-mistletoe-plants.htm
tree? Would it have to be an apple tree or would a plum tree be ok?
It is important that, although they are interesting a largely not harmful, when a tree is not getting proper care or is lacking something, then the parasitic plant will steal nutrients from the tree.
In short, they will help facilitate the death of a tree in the right circumstances.
