    Never tried it but kind of a neat little set up. I can tell you this for sure, if I had it I would definitely put it to use on some of the harder thing to germinate.

    I used something similar about 10 or so years ago, I used it on shrubs and vines, worked pretty good as I remember. One could make their own with a little ingenuity, a used Styrofoam coffee cup/with lid, cut in half lengthwise and held together with a twist tie, not as elegant looking but will do the job.

    That's a pretty cool little gizmo. I can think of all kinds of things I'd like to propagate.

    I have a hard time with cuttings seems like only about 1 out of 10 survives my system. That may help things a lot.

    I've used plastic bags ~ is that what you've used ``` Never used rooting compound ~ they suggest that ```

    for air layering, plastic wrap. for stick in the ground cuttings, covered with half a 2 liter bottle in the shade under a tree so they got a little sun only in the morning. moved once they started showing signs of growing/budding out.

    for mums, just chopped the plant into chunks and stuck them into some old potting mix. used a little rooting compound powder on the end but i don't think that would have made any difference as every single one of them survived.
