-11/2016, Airlayer removed from parent tree with very few roots due to tightness of sphagnum moss. Potted in sphagnum/bonsai mix to prevent desiccation. Layer seems alive.
-2/25/17, With unseasonably warm weather, the airlayer already shows signs of breaking buds.
-2/28/17, Tree is pruned to mame size, and transplanted into a tiny pot. Not many roots, but the layer seems alive and may survive with adequate watering.
-4/18/17, A few minuscule leaves but no other signs of growth.
