Does anyone here propagate crotons? If so what do you find to be the most effective way to get them started?

Plant them in lettuce with rach dressing

I am not in the industry, but have propagated hundreds of them. Two ways I have used include air layering and cuttings. Air layering is a sure thing, but the cutting often grow just as well. Crotons are easy to grow, just treat the cuttings to prevent rot.

I read on croton mania to cut the bark off to the white meat (cambium)? However my propagation teacher told me that might work againt the rooting process. I have had great success with taking the bark off. Anyone have any input?
