Air layering steps


Step 1. The stem is girlded to induce root formation above the cut
Step 2. The girdled stem is covered with damp moss
Step 3. Aluminum foil or plastic sheeting (Fig. 7) is wrapped around the moss and tied at both ends.
This cover is removed 2-3 months after tying or when the roots can be seen (Fig. 8).
