air layering muntingia and wax jambu any tips?

15 years ago

I recently purchased a Jamaican Strawberry (muntingia calabura), wax jambu (syzygium samarangense), and blackberry jam fruit (randia formosa) from Top Trop. They sent large trees but thanks to USPS, they arrived pretty beat up. Fortunately they have recovered and started to push new growth.

The muntingia and syzygium are actually fairly large trees that for my purposes need to be trimmed. Rather than just trim the branches, I thought about airlayering them. This would allow me duplicates for experiments, trades, or even recouping my initial costs.

Any tips or experience with air layering these trees or airlayering in general?

thanks for your help,
