  • my air layer desert king

    6 week airlayers had two i cut off this tree like this and a vdb about the same amount of roots as this too.these were bark removed and used hormone ,i tried others without cutting bark,they did not have but a few tiny roots ,don't even know if they will make it,i heard both ways are good ,but i will never airlayer again without removing the bark and hormone .everybody has there favorite way i guess ?

    I did an air layer on my Sweet George, I removed around 1/2" of bark all the way around, no rooting hormone. When I opened the 1 gallon pot, there was such a large root mass that I wondered where the soil went!!!

    Looks great, very nice job Chuck! Congrats!

    Looks good.

    I've only done a few so far but I got similar roots by randomly scratching the bark without hormone.

    It works so much better than cuttings.
