Depends on the bark. Old and gray won't work and neither will the soft stuff near the growing tip.

You want green and firm, but not too hard. It's hard to describe and mostly something you learn from experience. But, say 8" from the growing tip is about max, with ~5 or 6" from the tip being ideal.

Ive done a clone over 1 foot, Just stuck it down in a rockwool cube and wet it once in a while... I was shocked to see it root.
