seedling root sucker propagation
« on: October 23, 2019, 09:44:56 PM »
My mature, fruiting miracle berry (from seed) had a nice root sucker about 10in long, with an inch or two of small roots of its own.  I cut it out and planted it....is this likely to fruit significantly faster than a newly planted seed?

I did the same thing with a red jab root sucker.
I have no idea if it fruits any sooner... although the mother is blooming well.
