Baobab air layer

Hi everyone I have a 17 yr old baobab tree that ive been thinking of air layering into 2. Wondering if anyone has any ideas on how successful this has been or could be. Baobabs are a succulent tree which im wondering if air layer work the same as a woody tree? Thanks.

Air layering does not work with succulents the way that it does for other species. I’ve never worked with Baobab, but if it’s like other succulents you should be able to cut it where you want to separate and have it sprout roots, like a branch cutting would. Check out Ryan’s stream on succulent repotting where he goes over this. Also, check out drkauff’s comments in the Dwarf Jade topic.
