I am trying air layering for the first time; this is on a small Juniper. I decided to try it using the Tourniquet method, using a single wire to cut off the nutrients flow.
A few questions:
- Is it best to cut/score a ring where the wire will cut in or just tighten the wire so it cuts in ?
- after applying the rooting hormone and “bandaging” up the moss with clear plastic, how best to water the moss? Is it ok to untie the plastic, spray the moss, and re-tie ? I am not sure if this will continually disturb the (hopefully) new root growth.
Thanks for any insights
