Air Layer Recomendation

Just made an air layer on a Crepe Myrtle today. I was curious as to how long I should wait till after it comes out of dormancy to remove it.

First air layer I've done on a Crepe and also first I've done on a dormant tree.

Any advice?

Sorry, I have never worked with this species. The only way to know for sure is to check periodically and decide based on that. Make sure to let us know how you make out.

If it's dormant, it might take a while.
