The hormones might travel and even affect the gene expression of the top part of the tree but sir layering will not give you a hybrid of the rootstock and graft.

I do however find budspurt interesting



Thank you, clearly put for me.  Budspurt?

While peeps around here hate mesquite, i want to try the seed pods. I hear they are 30% sugar and was a candy for old settlers children.

 Dude what, candy what and also awesome smoking wood chips, heck ya
Dang, bump!  I just got kicked down tons of canna, red and green leaf varieties --- does anyone know if there is a taste difference between the two?  Maybe one of them actually is used like potatoes, like you know, the entire internet says?  Haha

Yeah it totally makes sense.  I guess I was overthinking it, since with air-layering the xylem and pith are still attached and what not I was thinking some rootstock genes might hybridize with the scion or something, idk haha thank you!

If I have an apple or citrus tree that is grafted onto a root stock, and I air-layer a grafted branch or a branch ABOVE the graft (not a sucker), will the air-layered plant be a clone of the rootstock, the scion, or will it have genes from both since it is forming new roots while still attached to the rootstock?

I hope this makes sense --- just spent hours googling this to no avail.

Nice, wish I could afford to support you.  I'm running my own experiments with 60 varieties of poly culture as well.  I noticed your biomass beds are monocropped.. is that right?

Maybe mesquite would not germinate / succeed within it's first year of growth if the soil was already nitrogenated?  Do I make sense?  Wondering.
