Clam Shell Air Propagator Update

 On June 15th I wrote about the Clam Shell Air Propagator system I was using on 4 plants.  After removing the propagators from the plants, the results are mixed.  The top picture shows the massive amount of roots that were produced on the Oak Leaf Hydrangea.  The second picture is the Azalea after we transferred it to a pot.  The root ball wasn't nearly as prolific as the Oak Leaf but with luck it will turn into a new bush.  The Rhododendron roots were even smaller and the dirt fell off when opened.  We planted it just in case it wants to grow.  The Crape Myrtle failed growing no roots at all.
