Default Longan Cuttings?

Does anyone out there know how to root longan cuttings or anything similar like lychee? Any help is greatly appreciated!

If they're hardwood cuttings, then dip them in some hardwood rooting compound and pot them up in a sterile, well-drained medium. No idea whether softwood or greenwood cuttings of Longan would root or not; here when we propagate we take established twigs.

Conversely, if you have an existing Lychee or Longan trees, you can also graft your current cuttings onto the established tree.

Lychee and Longan trees are generally reproduced by air layering.
It is best to try during the springtime when the plants are more active.
