I don't knoiw about cuttings, but citrus are very easy to propagate from 
seeds.  The seeds can simply be cleaned and planted fresh (no drying 
period required).  I have several citrus trees I haves started this way, 
including orange and grapefruit tress ( I have a couple of three year old 
grapefruit trees that are about 4 feet tall.  Give the plants plenty of 
moisture and sunlight, they don't like to dry out a lot.  And keep them 
fairly warm.  Here in Illinois I keep mine in large planters and move 
them outside in the warm season and bring them in for the cold.
