thank u! this was picked today from a very big publik good lemon tree. i took some young leaves and shoots as i read they can help the branch grow roots if blended with water .
so, each floor square is 30 cm..(all of it about 140 cm with side branches and leaves, pic didnt upload meantimw as its few mb) its a very huge high tree big good lemons , i blended the green young branch and leaves i picked in water and meantime left the big branch in vecil with water and the green water on the roof. whats the best way to make it grow roots please?

here i shrinked the pic from today.. really dear Doc gave me that idea as i tried take seeds from good local trees before and didnt make it.. its the second time i take branch from that publik lemon tree. the first one was shorter, i had also grinded green ypoung parts and leaves, put it in water and soaked the branch.. then i transfered it to pot big pot on roof, put those water inn, the pot is with holes on bottom, and i watered it... the leaves og it had already turned dry, i dont know if it will grow roots, the first branch i tried and is in pot i picked some weeks ago.. then i picked from huge great apple tree, last thursday, it has no leaves in winter, a 2 brances, put them in such waters till today...tried more time in water, today i trasnsfered to pot with soil , no roots are seen. hope they can make it to be trees, please!

Some plants will root like that and some wont.

Sometimes putting the cutting into potting soil after covering the cut with rooting hormone works too.
