    Marcotting is one method of propagating the citrus plant. Choose a mature branch (I think it is called twig) and wrap with a plastic 2 tablespoon of soil. The intention is to wrap that portion of the twig, about 1 or 2 inches long, so roots will grow because of the soil inside the wrapping. When the twig had developed roots, you can cut that twig and plant it in a pot or on the ground. It will grow to a tree. I am speaking about citrus because we had done marcotting on a lemon plant and also calamansi, a smaller citrus like kumquat.

    Just take note of this before thinking of marcotting your citrus. The mother tree will stop bearing fruit for a year. So if your lemon tree is fruiting good then don't even think of marcotting that tree.
