I've rooted many roses and more recently, some some Eureka lemons. But have no luck with Persian limes. They want to grow fruit rather than roots. I have three cuttings right now, one with eight buds and one with four and one that looks like it's not doing anything. This is not the first time I've tried rooting limes and they've always either died or tried to produce fruit rather than leaves or roots. Is that common with limes?
If I snip off the tiny fruit buds, will that help them root?
