Default Re: Rooting plants from cuttings . . .

Let me try to be more clear here...

The common name is Wollemi Pine.

The botanical name is Wollemia Nobilis.

It is not actually a pine, but rather in the Araucariaceae family.

I'm not looking to take a branch cutting. There are three (3) leaders on this tree, and I'm wanting to try and root one of them. On the leader that I want to root, there are three lateral branches very close to the apical meristem, and I'm wondering if I should just cut them back all the way to the main leader, partway, or leave them as is.
