Propagate big shrubs and trees!
Air-layering propagation has long been used by skilled gardeners. Now Rooter-Pot makes it easier for home gardeners to achieve the same results! In just a few weeks, you can have big, new specimen plants for free!
Rooter-Pots clamp around vertical stems from 1/4" up to 1/2" thick. You make a shallow cut around the stem and peel back the bark, brush on rooting hormone
(sold separately) and then fill the pot's water reservoirs and close the hinged halves round the stem. Then pack the pot with moistened peat moss, potting mix or coco-fiber. Latch the lid into place. Now you have the perfect conditions for new roots to form! Use them again and again.
Check progress every week or so and keep the reservoirs topped up with water as necessary. When you see roots have formed, you can cut completely through the stem below the Rooter-Pot and transplant your new specimen into a larger pot.
