Air layering cedar

Post  Bob Pressler on Wed Sep 11, 2013 1:58 pm

Does any one have any success at airlayering Atlas Cedars? If yes any suggestions to help insure success?
Also does anyone have experience with them from cuttings?
Thanks.

Google on it. There is a ton of information, including old threads on IBC.

I tried google- most of what is on there is useless. I'm hoping to find someone with personal experience.

I couldn't find much on airlayering them either. There's a lovely big one growing in my parents garden, which I'd love to air layer and mimic. I live in the south of the UK.

Would it harm anything if you try first on unimportant brunch if it root [airlayer] before you do real one? Might give you answer in few weeks?

A good guide to how successfull air layering Cedrus atlantica might be to look at the educational institutions information on rooting cuttings. The UC Davis rooting database indicates that November cuttings in sand and peat with no hormone treatment resulted in a 30% success rate. Michael Dirr references show a 20% success rate with Nov cuttings with a 3-4% IBA solution. There are also reports that Cedrus atlantica and lebanii often will root with a single root which often dies after planting out. That being said, there is a very very low possibility of air layering at best. I might add here that Cedrus deodara roots readily with ease with a rooting percentage of 60-90%.

Thanks Randy. I kind of thought it would be difficult at best.

It would definitely take more then a few weeks to tell anything, but thanks for the suggestion.
