A great device for beginners to make air-layering easy and effective.
The capsule allows for stronger aerial roots producing a more mature plant faster than normal propagation methods.
Most plants can be air layered, including tropical indoor plants, climbers, roses, magnolia, camellias, azaleas as well as edibles including nuts and fruit trees ie. apples, pears, pecans and citrus.
TO USE: Select a vertical branch, just below the bud make 2 horizontal cuts in the bark 10mm apart. Peel the bark away between the cuts to expose the inner cambium. Fill the capsule with moist coco peat (coir) or sphagnum moss and clamp the capsule around the exposed cambium. Seal the capsule to prevent drying out, and water weekly. Check for root growth after 6 weeks. Once established, cut the branch below the capsule, remove capsule and plant out.
Capsules are long-lasting and may be reused over and over.
