I airlayered my michelia abla last year and it rooted on July this year. I am so happy to see that I successfully airlayering my michelia alba. But this month of Aug, I transplanted the airlayering branch into a pot. I notice that the top two branches turned to brown, but the bottom braches are still green. Hope it is not dying. Any suggestion on how th save the michelia? Thank you. See the picture below on the michelia abla.

RE: Air layering my Michelia Alba.... What am I doing wrong? (Follow-Up #5)

posted by: bernadette_gourder on 02.04.2009 at 09:04 am in Plant Propagation Forum

Hi!

I am new at air layering, but I have had success nonetheless. The best time of year for me has been right before they leaf out, in the spring. They have rooted quite quickly and I severed them from the shrub/tree in the fall and potted them. I would scrape the branch all the way around so that the shrub doesn't try to heal it self over if I only scraped one side of it. Pencil thickness is good, but make sure that it isn't old wood. I do put rooting hormone on mine, the powder kind, although honestly I am not sure if I need it. Then I wrap it well with moist (not wet) moss that I found in our woods. Holding the moss it place with my hand I completely covered it with aluminum foil. I think foil works best because it helps it not to dry out as fast, because the sun bounces off of it. If you were to use, let's say plastic wrap or something, then you would be making a mini greenhouse.
Check your air layer in about a month to see how it's coming along. If you are too eager you may hurt the roots that are coming when you unwrap the foil. Some people wrap the moss in plastic wrap, then put the foil over that so that when they unwrap the foil they will be able to see if
there are any roots without disturbing them.

Hope that helps a bit!

I love it when the blossom looks like that. One alone smell fabulous...but 3...heavenly!! Thank you for sharing Mickey.

Kasie


NOTES:

Sure, it does smell fabulous. Around May each year, the tree blooms a lot of flowers, but the tree is so tall, I have a hard time to pick them.

I know that I am so luck that I can grow our Michelia Alba tree in our bcakyard for more than 30 years in San Francisco. But when I first got it, I nursed it just like a little new borned baby. At that time in the morning and day time, I caiired the pot michelia alba to the yard to get sun light, then at nighttime I got it back to the covered area for the night. I had been doing that for almost one year before the tree was transplant to the ground. Here is the picture on that tree that I transplanted to the ground about 25 years ago. It is in the same location of the big michelia alba tree.


NOTES:

This michelia alba tree was planted to that location in my backyard in San Francisco almost 30 years ago. Since then it has not moved at all, now it is almost 30 feet tall. How do you like that?
