Transferring Mistletoe

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

Growing Mistletoe

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
