Very interesting. This bulb grows on the branch and serves as roots to new starts? Is that what I see?

I guess I'm asking how you did it 👍

@columbiariver I think he airlayered a plant. You knick the branch near a leaf node and wrap soil or sphagnum moss around that area and seal with syran wrap. After a month or two you'll see roots. Then you can cut off below where you wrapped and you now have a duplicate plant. 😁 Correct me if I'm wrong anywhere, @Kuhnjuice I've never tried it, just read about it.

New key lime from an air-layer I did on a friend's tree

How long did that take?

@jennlamaye It took about 7 weeks till I was happy with the way the root system looked before I cut it off from the parent plant.

Gtags just indicated that I wasn't following you... I'm so confused, as you are the 2nd person! 😞
