          It take about 2 month. I guess is stubborn. But thanks to WillsC it come out like tis. He remind me to be patient. That is biggest part. Soon as I see 1 root I want to cut and plant but as "my mentor" tell me wait wait wait. More root. Layer must be jammed with root. Which I do he say and poof here it is.
          Grazie !

                      Great work Mike!
                      What did you use for the potting mix inside the plastic?

                      I just started my first 2 airlayers over a week ago and hope to do several more, but I won't have the advantage of seeing success before starting more.

                          I have been using "Roots Organics" original mix. It has proven to grow almost 3 time faster and better looking than miracle gro. There is many good things in tis soil that the plants love. My wife had spider vine plant in her office for 2 year. Never a flower. She took a cup of my "Roots Organics" and just pour it in top of plant and week later she has flowers and flower buds all over it. Her and her co workers all got a plant from the boss. All same plant from same store same everything. Their still have no flowers. So it does really work well
