I picked up this 24” tall CM from a local nursery and re-potted in good medium about 10 days ago. It recovered just fine so I cut it back and wired it tonight. Cut it down to about 10” tall.

Not sure of the cultivar yet. I did take cuttings and have them set up to root. Thanks for any comments.

The 3 woody cuttings rooted in about 15 days and are throwing off nice aerial roots now. I think they’ll make nice small trees.

Update. These grow fast. Took 4 more cuttings. Sacrifice branch is about to bud. Fun tree to grow. I’ll know what cultivar it is after seeing the flowers.

Love em, cut the daughter down next year to remove the straight section. Super appically dominate. Cut the top half of shoots next season every time they reach 4 or 5 leaf pair and you'll have a fabulous start to some ramification. Reminds me a should start a thread... have fun with yours
