From these Okame cherry trees/cuttings I will put together a small forest. The pot in the middle has very recent cuttings which will hopefully take root. On the left is an appr. 3 year old tree. On the right is a rooted sapling from a cutting - about 10 months old.

I kept the pot of cuttings covered with my 'milk jug greenhouse' for the first five weeks. I uncovered them in July which was very wet and humid. All 9 of them seem to have rooted as they don't want to move when I tug on them. One is even going crazy with new leaves. The sapling in it's own pot has grown a second trunk which took me by surprise. I currently have a thicker, larger cherry cutting in the 'greenhouse'. If it survives it'll be nice.

The cutting in the 'greenhouse' turned out nice. Originally I tried to airlayer the top of one of my cherry trees but that failed. So I cut it off and planted it with root hormone and it grew roots and more leaves.
