  1. I found air layering many years ago, when I first found Mother Earth News, from Rodale, sometime in the late 70's or 80's. Ever since then one failure after another, left me hating on it, or my poor attempts at it. When I found my cannabis hobby and realized how bad I needed to make clone's, as I had no room for MOM's. Things went well, for a couple of years and all of a sudden I hit a rooting wall, and could not get even well known cut's to root. Like WTF happened all of a sudden? I never did find that answer, lots of maybe's and could be's , but I still do not know! A month or so ago, one of the gardens I help established, came to me seeking some rope, to hang himself, as he had purchased 2 separate Gro Cloners, each one the first run, rooted all but a few sites!! He goes through their suggested cleaning, sanitizing procedure, and packs it away for while, so the new green can find their spot in the perpetual cycle. Once he set's the thing back up, he gets about half of the previous rooted cuts, enough for now....the cycle turns without waiting. He comes to me, I full fill his needs, he relates his story, and goes out to get GC2, as all failed the next try. I'm all but shut down, got space invaders for a few months. He comes to me, with sever hang dog, fighting back tears, tells me about the fail after fail attempts to root some damn cuts. I'm still sticking mine in 1oz cups, with a few pokies, in a compost/perlite mix, and keeping a solid 50% rooted. I give him another cycle worth. He gives me one of the GC's. I start to try to unlock this GC rootless wall. I found ad nauseum, huge amounts of stuff posted up about the GC, it's biofilm, it's bad Clonex, it's PH, it needs Cal/Mag, it needs steam cleaned, H2O2, Phan San, Sulpheric acid is needed.....WTF? Mind Blow!! So, I've been running this damned contraption, recording each step, recording each cleaning/sanitizing step....and still my 1 oz plastic cups kicks the roots out as fast and more with my mix. Then I remember air layering. I wonder, what is new in that world. Descriptions of the photos: The air layering pod or ALP, then my mix of vermiculite/compost/a bit of Sunshine Mix #4/some perlite/a few drops of Super Thrive and a few drops of Rapid Rooter, watered to field mix. The test branch that will be removed this winter as it's a nuisance branch now. I used the pod size to see how much bark gets stripped off. Then simple closed the pod and snapped it shut. I then zip tied it shut, as I felt that a strong storm may blow it off. Then the 2 pods I installed and now we wait. I think it will be a month or more (if at all) the rooting starts. I'll add some water once in a while, or make a IV drip line LOL! Next will be a cannabis plant, and I'm seeking out a smaller ALP for that. Have a great day everyone!
