Secure the four flaps of scion wood with grafting tape, rubber band, or.

Softwood cuttings need at least six hours of light per day to root, but not direct sunlight. Propagation beds with grow lights, timers and heaters can be purchased from many sources. The ideal rooting tray has a heated bed (usually set to 70 degrees) and a vented cover.

Moisture loss in the rooting mix is the primary cause of failed cuttings. The pecan is different from most plants because its cuttings do not produce roots, and thus grafting is needed to propagate many trees of one variety. Germinating Seed. Collect well-filled seed nuts in October or November, and dry to about 5 percent moisture, or until the kernel snaps when bent.

Vegetative Propagation (grafting & budding) Pecan trees are usually grafted in the spring of the third growing season or patch budded in late summer of the second growing season.

Grafting. Scion wood should be collected during the dormant period (between January and March) from straight one year old shoots 1/4 to 5/8 inch in diameter. Start pecan tree cuttings in late spring or early summer when the tree is no longer dormant. 2 Fill a 5-inch biodegradable pot with perlite or vermiculite. Pour water into the pot until the perlite.
