So I'll try not to disturb them until they've grown into ground and start to lignify. Then it'll be tricky to pull them out and position them to the position I want. Right now they're fragile and break upon any manipulation.

I should add that I was able to accelerate root formation by removing 1/2" x 1/4" sized bark to expose the softwood, added rooting powder and SM. As mentioned before the location I picked was great because it's shaded and roots don't grow when exposed to direct sunlight.

Happy aero-rooting!
