Collecting Sweetgum

why? because i have a lot of free time on break at work. i saw this sweetgum branch from where i sit under the flowering pear tree and thought, i wonder if i can airlayer that?


a few days after the airlayer i took a sweetgum cutting in a jiffy pellet. today it still looks healthy. maybe it will live.

i checked the airlayer today and it seems to have callused quite nicely. i think its diggin the perlite, but will it push roots?

If the callus doesn’t push roots, you can cut some of the callus (not all of it) and try hormone again.
