Here is a photo of my "Godfather" cuttings after 20 days, sitting in a plastic box on my hot water heater!
The last time I tried GF cuttings I had no luck (I must have done something wrong) ! It also helped that a friend here gave me some extras also, Thanks Sas and Coop : )
Hope everyone has great luck this year with their cuttings and trees!

Nice! I have a small cutting that Santa gave me as an extra. Not doing as well as yours, but it does have spunk. Great job!

I had real good luck rooting in coir like you, this year. I took Frank's (FMD) advice and it is a great method!

I'm growing a few of these myself.  They are excellent rooters.  Mine went to cups before they grew roots that big, but they now are overflowing the cup with roots.

Nice work, Frank!
