The Rooter Pot
If you've ever tried to do an air layer holding the soil or moss in place as you wrap it with plastic wrap can be tricky. The Rooter Pot is a ingenious container for air layering plants easily. If you are a bit inventive you might even be able to create your own similar device using a plastic cup or quart size nursery container.
