We are planning to marcot Mango, Chico and Duhat.
Approximately how many days after marcotting each of these respective plants will the roots begin to appear?
We ask because we live in the
equatorial regionPhilippines, and we would like to do it right the first time.
It can take the layer from a few weeks to one or more growing seasons to produce sufficient roots; this is largely dependent on the plant species and the vigor of the parent plant.
Edit (September 2, 2020) Daytime temperature in our place ranges from 34 degrees to 38 degrees Celsius. Nighttime temperature ranges from 28 to 33 degrees Celsius. It is very humid here. There is the Laguna Lake nearby (so would that qualify for maritime climate?). About the particular Mango species to be marcotted, I am not particularly sure about the scientific name, but I am attaching herewith a photo of said (ripe) Mango:
We are still uncertain about the following:
- diameter & ages of branches intended; and
- specific air layering methods intended
Are there prescribed procedures/methods for these, with the background information that I have given so far?
