  • Video I made on 'How to Air Layer'

    One of several ways to do it. Here is how I do mine, start to finish. Perhaps it may help someone out.

      Very nicely done. Shows a lot of detail. I'm sure this video will encourage someone to start their first airlayer.

                  Cool video. I actually cut the middle of the cap out and screwed it back into the bottom of the bottle to hold it closed. Also, I used a full bottle and a few zip ties to hold it together. I think your extra cut is a great idea since I had trouble getting the narrow part on the branch. Thanks for making posting this.

                    F. Bennett are there preferred times if the year to air layer? Or maybr minimum night temperatures?

                      For zone 7, I prefer to start as early as May, and as late as August. If night temps are below 60, rooting time will take much longer.

                        Hey Frank, did you score the branch at all for these air layers?

                          No, I did not. I find that it doesn't make a drastic difference for me.

                        Do you consider the presence of any nodes when choosing a location for placement of the bottle?
