Makes me sad that I lost mine due to Fungus last year :-(

I also loved the changes the Wollemi went thru over the seasons

Thanks for sharing the photos. I have a small one planted in the garden but the 'polar caps' havent started to melt yet, its nice to see whats to come. These are a truly noble tree in there natural environment and its great that so many have gotten on the 'bandwagon' so to speak.

This is my first year with the tree, I am planning on letting it grow to a reasonable sized garden tree, trying my hand with cuttings & layers over time.

good luck Matt!!
I can say that they do layer, as I have a littly that I took off (layer) what is now a 5 ft (ish) tree.
I will get some photos up of both, just waiting for a nice day ... :shock:
Have had mine in partial sun - not too dry, not too wet, nice and acidic (4.5 ish).
Seems to do well, have had 3ft of growth in as many years, and that is in a 10-12L pot.. :D

Would you be able to talk me through your air layer process?

I have taken a few cuttings in the hopes of propagating them as either bonsai or more pot specimens.

I have a lot of growth coming through on the lower half of the tree, so I'm tossing up as to whether I should take more cutting or let it grow out and air layer it.
