Removing pups from horizontal logs

Recommended Posts

Forgive my noobish question... we all have to start somewhere.

 

I've got some logs that were gifted and they now have some sizable pups growing off them. What's the best way to get them growing in their own pots?

 

I was thinking to cut them off as close as possible to the log and let the cuts dry a couple of weeks, then just stand them up buried in their own pots and let them go.

 

Am I missing something?

 

Thanks

Just cut them at the base like any other offset and it's all the same technique from there.

Just confirming, I cut right on the join despite the angle it comes off the log?

It's a good spot to cut, less open wound to callous over and the cuts usually root faster ime.

Thanks mate.

 

Hopefully my logs will make some new pups if I take their babies away too.
