SAUCO, Víctor Galán et al. Litchi (Litchi chinensis Sonn) propagation. New Technologies and innovations. Rev. Bras. Frutic. [online]. 2018, vol.40, n.4, e-575.  Epub 17-Set-2018. ISSN 0100-2945.

The different propagation systems for litchis are reviewed. After examining the main morphological and developmental characteristics of the plant and the description of the structures and materials, including types of substrate required for the propagation of this species, the different methods for its propagation are discussed. Propagation by seeds is only used for breeding or research purposes or for raising rootstock for grafting. Although propagation by cuttings is done in many countries and stooling has been reported as highly successful in India, air layering is the most common commercial way of propagation for this species. Despite that the cambium activity varies from place to place around the stem with only 30% of the cambium being active at any one time grafting is of current use in China.
