Re: Air Layering

I tried air layering many years ago...so many I can't remember the results.
However I just did it to my Leonard Messel Magnolia about 10 dyas ago, but
not exactly in the traditional manner.  I used the rooterpot instead of
wrapping.  Other than that, it is the same method.  I should know something
in 6-8 weeks.  This is agreat way to get a larger clone much faster than
ordinary cuttings.
