Most plants can be rooted through this method, such as ornamental figs, dieffenbachia, croton and others of a herbaceous nature. Woody plants frequently propagated in this manner include magnolia, holly, camellia, azalea and many of the fruit and nut bearing plants such as citrus, apple, pears and pecans. And, even if no rooting takes place, the original plant is not damaged by the process since you do not remove the donor material until it has produced roots. Roses, Forsythia, Honeysuckle, Boxwood, Wax myrtle are also very good candidates for propagation through this method. Some plants are easier than the others and success rate generally depends on the season, weather, hydration and health of the parent plant.
