Definition as written by IRFAN_LODHI:

Simple layering is a technique that\'s used to propagate plants that produce runners and trailing shoots.
1 : First, fill a clean small pot with moist seedling mix.
2 :Select a healthy shoot and position it so a node is in the center of the small pot. Use a paper clip to peg the shoot down. Keep the pot moist for the next few weeks.
3:When new growth is evident, the new plant is ready to be removed from the parent plant. Use sharp, clean pruning shears to separate the plants.
