Air layering allows you to grow healthy houseplants and trees in weeks instead of years. That’s right, there is no need to wait for seeds to germinate when you can produce leafy, new trees in weeks instead of years. You can even watch the roots grow. Mosser Lee’s Air layer Grow Kit is a great gift idea for parents who want to give to their children a baby tree from a special parent tree in their back yard. What a wonderful way to give children a very meaningful new house gift!
What is Air Layering?
Air Layering is a propagation method of growing a completely new plant while still attached to the parent plant. The process includes cutting into the parent plant, placing rooting powder in the incision, covering the wound with wet sphagnum moss to create the perfect environment for growth and seal the moss around the wound. A practice first documented in China almost two thousand years ago, air layering supports the healthy propagation of trees and woody plants. Today, many professional tropical plant nurseries use this process to propagate their stock each season. While Mosser Lee did not discover this incredible practice, we have made it easy with our complete Air layer Grow Kit.
Long fibered Sphagnum Moss
Long-fibered sphagnum moss is the key to air layering’ s success. Long-fibered sphagnum’s water retentive ability keeps the incision moist for a long time, without the need to add water. Sphagnum moss also does not allow bacteria to enter the area. This clean, anti-bacterial moist environment encourages new roots to develop at the incision without the threat of infection.
