TOPIC: cupressu macrocarpa air layer?

cupressu macrocarpa air layer? 3 years 1 month ago #17135

Hello, has anyone air layered a cupressus macrocarpa before? i just wanted to know if the thickness would be an issue, the branch i have my eye on is around 40mm thick, would a thinner branch be more successful in rooting?
thanks for any advice.

I haven't layered one of these but don't see why branch thickness should be an issue
