TOPIC: Air layer from a Krauter Vesuvius

Air layer from a Krauter Vesuvius 2 weeks 4 days ago #51993

Hi All, new to the forum and new to bonsai. I’ve air layered a prunus in my yard and the bag is now filling up with roots. I’d like to train this as a bonsai but I’m not entirely sure what is the best next step. Obviously I’ll have to part the air layer off of the main tree, but then what? The branch is about an inch and a half in diameter at its base and probably five feet tall. Do I cut back the height at the same time I plant it? Do I let the roots establish first? Thanks in advance for the advice.

I don't know how big that is. There are only three countries in the world that use these units, and that's Liberia, Myanmar and another one... forgot which one, sorry, it'll come back to me later.

First thing I think you need to do is (after separating it) make sure it can systain itself by planting or potting it and letting it grow.
