Title.
I mean they do grow from cuttings. Wondering if older wood can be airlayered too, for better nebari. Maybe you have had success airlayering similar Piceas?

I find these things for free sometimes, but they have thick roots that grow in circles.

Pics just to show what the plant can look like, aint mine.

to each their own, but i heard they are kind of 'meh' for bonsai as a species, generally

I had a bunch that were buried too deep for five years, but they never produced any new roots so I think air layers are out of the question.
But they're 3 euros on sale, it wouldn't be hard to find a couple with a decent nebari.
