Hi all, my name is Budi from Indonesia, I just share my Propagating style....:)
This is very interesting!
How long will it take (on average of months)for each wrapped ball to give sufficient roots?
How long have you been doing this unique Propagating style?
I do it 5 week to root this propagating style
and this the result
for more information can be viewed on my blog
Did you wrap each ball with aluminum foil or did you leave them as pictured?
This is awesome! Thank you for this, and the photos are excellent! You've touched many lives.
@ rafed.... no I didn't wrap each ball with aluminum foil, i just wrap with black plastic to protect root against the sun. sorry my english is not fluent
@ budbackeast ....... thank you brother.....:)
I used black plastic to protect root from sunlight
It's so hot here, black plastic would fry the roots. I fried some Panachee roots in a black pot until I realized what was happening. I moved the pot to the shade, and I wrap my air layers with foil to keep them in the dark and reflect the hot sun off.
This is a great learning lesson!
Great job! Did you cut the bark before applying the bag & soil?
@ desertdance.... yup .... but foil it's expensive for me...:). because foil in Indonesia in use for grilling fish or chicken....hi hi hi
@ tak2w ... yes i cut the bark before applying the bag & soil
Best fig propagation photos ever.
How did you learn to do this technique?
I just only modify air layers system....:)
and it was not as bad as the cuttings system
air layers system can produce enough seeds.............
