Layering a calamondin

17 years ago

I have a calamondin and two months ago I layered a pencil or slightly larger branch. I cut about 1 1/2 the diameter measurement down the branch and cut the bark away and scraped the bright green layer away. I wrapped it in wet sphagnum moss, wrapped it with cellophane and wrapped wire lightly around the ball to hold it. ItÂs been that way for 2 months. I can see the ball has stayed moist the whole time and the branch thatÂs being layered has new shoots and flowers all over it. How much longer should I wait before I cut the layered branch off and plant it, another month or now? IÂm guessing if I wait longer, no harm is done, Ill just have less die back. Any input any one? Thanks.
