Air layering

Air layering

I have an overgrown Elephants Foot Palm with (2) 8' trunks and a smaller 3' side trunk. Has anyone ever tried air layering this plant and will the "foot" reform on the cut-off trunk?

    There is a WONDERFUL site called the Garden Web. They have forums on just about anything you might like. Try visiting their 'Plant Propogation' forum. Just scroll down when you get here and you'll see it on the right.

    Good luck,
