Do you literally just put the seeds in an opening in the bark? 🤔

We have a pretty little native Mistletoebird (Dicaeum Hirundinaceum) that feeds on the mistletoe berries then poops them on to the branch of a tree to grow. 🙃 @rachelbrooks

@rachelbrooks Hi Rachel, thats pretty much it yes, sometimes you can make a slight slit in the bark and put the seed in if you want. Best Wishes Darren

Yes, that’s how they normally grow here too Annette. I didn’t even think whether we could propagate it! How clever! @Annettenoosa Thanks Darren, I may give it a go! 👍🏼
