Dear Mr Tickle, are you going to share the knowledge?

Hi Tony,

Seeing as many of us are in full collecting mode. Any chance of the low down on your revolutionary rooting methods?

Very Happy

My guess is that the trees are kept at a set temperature under black plastic or in a dark greenhouse, perhaps packed in sphagnum moss and misted regularly - maybe even with some sort of rooting product mixed into the misting . Am I close?

Mambo,

even oil painters don't tell all. This might be a too personal request.

Perhaps you should test your typed ideas, on some small but old enough yammadori, and see what happens.

On our side, a plastic tent [ some wood straights and plastic ] in a brightly illuminated area [ only morning sun until 8.00 a.m, and evening sun after 5.00 p.m ] in a coarse soil mix produced 100 % rooting results on rootless stumps, years ago, in a friend's garden,

No one knew about moss or anything else seen today.

By the way greenheart is extremely durable as lumber goes, I have never seen the tree, but I have seen houses made from the lumber 40 or so years ago. No problems.

Also remember, you should prepare the area around the trunk for extremely valuable finds, but I figure you already know all of the above.
Laters.

Hello Khaimraj. I think you'll find Tony is quite open about techniques for rooting wild trees. Tony added a thread about heating beds a while back and Sphagnum does feature heavily in the success rate too. I'm sure TT will explain further....

Mr. Tickle has already posted complete instructions on building a heated bed where he keeps his yamadori.
Look around and you will find this thread, Mambo. It's one part of his methods.
