            dude, that root ball is excellent. You are golden . I think you would have to actively ingore/overwater them to kill those root balls

              Do you remember what day you started the air layering? Just curious how long it takes.

                It generally takes 4 to 5 weeks. In this case, it seems longer than that.

                I've only done a handful. I took a couple at 3 weeks, mistakenly thinking it was 4. They did fine. I had 3 others taken at 4, two did fine, but one didn't make it.But from the looks of the one that didn't make it, it didn't look so great. I took it anyway and learned to leave some longer. So, I'm happy to take at 4-5 weeks. I use the clear balls, and you see roots at around 2-2.5 weeks. You can see the progress after that very nicely.

                What kind of graft did you start with? " I mostly do cleft and whip and tongue grafts.I'm not an expert been doing it for 9 months now.

                    Excellent root formation. I’ve had citrus survive with a fraction of those roots. I just air- layered a VDB right now using a ziplock and foil. Did you use any rooting hormone?

                    Strell Nice results. I also graft instead of trying to root the sticks. Or, I remove the bottom one or two buds off a cutting for grafts and try to root the rest. One thing I do when I set the AL on the branch once the graft has grown is to set it one or two nodes away from the mother tree. This way, I end up with the AL new tree and the bottom section has a chance to grow again as part of a frankenfig tree.
