    I've been unsuccessful rooting mulberry cuttings. I tried with promix similar to figs, and failed. If you had access to a tree, I would try airlayering.

        Depending on the type, you can treat them like a fig cutting. I stuck a Pakistan mulberry outside in a pot. Green growth started quickly, but I think the roots took longer. Definitely pinch away any fruit clusters that form. Some varieties are very difficult to root and should be grafted.

          These are Shangri la. I usually treat my cuttings like fig cuttings, but wanted to try some methods I haven't tried before

            I tried rooting a few mulberries this year when I also started some fig cuttings in march 2021 and noticed that it took a lot longer for mulberries to root and leaf out.
            It was just a curiosity experiment, but given good care they can root comparably to figs. Have given a few away to friends and kept 3.
            I also air layered a nice sized branch at same time and that is also doing great.
            BTW, used the same mix for mulberries as for figs (very fast draining), kept in shade until leafed out and then gradually moved to stronger light, when roots come out of the pots bottom, its ready for full sun and repot

              Shangri la is an awesome variety after it grows a couple years. Shangri la is able to root in moist perlite but I would recommend finding a small mulberry tree or a segment of mulberry root and graft.

                Shaft, if your mulberry cuttings are Shangri-la then you can follow the advise on the link above. Shangri-La is one of the easiest mulberry to grow from rooting. I just stick them in a 2 gallon pot with peat mix, throw a grocery store plastic bag over it and water once a week, open and check once a week, when they start growing leaves you can remove the bag cover. The roots will not grow out for 2-3 months even if the leaves grow out. Here's some photos for your info.

                  If you need more cuttings, I can sell you some for reasonable price. Black Pakistan tastes better to me. I have most of the varieties of mulberry.
