Air Layering

Air layering is a propagation technique that allows you to produce new plants from existing ones without cutting them off. It involves wounding a stem or branch and covering it with moist sphagnum moss and plastic wrap to encourage root formation. Air layering can be done on many indoor and outdoor plants, such as roses, forsythia, honeysuckle, boxwood, wax myrtle, and others. Air layering is especially useful for plants that are difficult to root from cuttings or seeds. It can also help rejuvenate leggy or bare-stemmed plants by creating a new plant with a shorter stem.
