    Very cool Dean. There is one palm in particular I would like to try this method on. Thanks for sharing the tip. Beautiful Pinanga by the way!

    Sorta - I think I remember someone telling me they bent down limbs of Ficus dammaropis to the ground and burying them instead of doing the traditional air layer. Then they said they cut a pot and pieced it in the ground around the stem when it started rooting. Then filled it with soil and let more roots fill the pot before cutting it from the tree.

    The take on F. dammaropisis is that they are not that hard to air layer, but die easily once cut from the tree. So, that method was a way to give it a little more help.

    So, this was just a tweak on a theme.
