Default pomagranite

Hey, how do grow a pomegranite tree from a clipping. I thought it would be something fun to try and one of my friends has a tree and I don't think he would mind if I got a piece of it!

You'll have better success if you spell it pomegranate

Take a six to eight inch cutting a bit narrower than a pencil. Remove the growth tip. Get the bottom two inches wet and lightly dust it with "Rootone" or another multi-hormone rooting compound. Put it in an 8-10 oz cup with holes punched in the bottom or a similar size Jiffy pot -- sold next to seeds in nurseries. Use commercial cactus mix or Jiffy seed starting mix for a rooting medium. Before you insert the cutting, make sure the medium is wet and use a plastic pen or similiar to make a 2.5 inch deep hole to place it in. Firm the soil around it. Put the cup in a rooting chamber, like Joe has been discussing here: Cheap rooting chamber.

Yeah, or spell it Punica granatum. It also responds to its Latin binomial. But Richard's info is correct. I would try cuttings from plants here in NC, but they are dormant at the moment, so I'd have to wait until June or July.

Well thanks Zac!

For alternate approaches to rootings and propagation of plants in general, I give a strong recommendation to this book:
Plant Propagation, edited by Alan Toogood. The "DK Books" and the "American Home Garden" edition are exactly the same texts with a different outside and inside cover. Booksellers sometimes sell one for half the price of the other!
