I found this sites showing how to.  If you know of some other video, let me know the link, so I can add it here.  That way, we make good use of our combine effort.

I haven't reviewed the videos above, but I understand guavas are supposed to be difficult, but possible, to root.  And that usual methods are grafting or marcot/air-layering.

I have seen two methods described on this forum for rooting guavas, the "bag method" and the "solo cup method".

Because I received some cuttings from Kaz but had no good place to graft onto, I am doing the solo cup method on some cuttings.  I was having good results, but my 1yo son knocked them all over last week and spilled the soil... so they might die now :-/

I had no idea guava was hard to root. I got some pink guava cuttings a few months ago, and just did my standard rooting procedure for them. I scratched the bottom, dipped in rooting hormone, potted them up, then placed them in a humid container. Of the 5 cuttings, I got 2 to root.
