NEED HELP WITH CLIPPING

I recently bought a Fukien Tea bonsai, and was wondering how I could reproduce it. I know there are two methods, one is using the seed of the red fruit, and the other is use the clippings. I am interested in the clipping method. Does anyone have any insight info please?

damaster97,

I can check my reference material later this evening if you don't get a response by then.

damaster97,

Sorry, the primary book that I reference on propagation does not list this species. Another simply notes that cuttings should be taken from mid-spring though early summer.

In case you have not found these sites here are two links that might give you some insight.

Gnome,

Does your book have any information about Premna? (not sure which type of Premna)

I'm so amazed by how little information is available about that species, but the little that there is, makes me think it's a REALLY great specemen.
