Hey guys/gals

New day, new tree...
I realized that anyway I’ll chop off the major portion of if, so why not make two. The first branch(ling) is 18cm from the rootbase, so I hope it’ll sprouting out a bit downer. From the air layer, 8-9 cm the first branch.

The new addition inside:

I don't want to be a boring old grumpy, but why not making the layer closer to that "first" branch?

Too short the editing time.. :unsure:
That you cannot see from the other images, but hopefully a wannabe branch:

OK, now I see.
Seems to be a good plan.

Clicio, what do you think if I put a second layer inline in the top part? Seems to be already hard wood, so propagation from cutting probably won’t work.

Hummm... Short answer is...
I don't know if it's going to work.

Ha! In this case I’ll give it a try, cause I’ll loose anyway that part when I’ll chop the tree. Little experiment..

For air layers to work, you need lots of growth, and lots of foliage.
You can only put a layer between the roots and another layer it there is loads of foliage between the two layers.

Thanks! It’s you, who I needed. I have enough foliage there or don’t worth to try?
