Rooting Hormone Speed Up Plant Cuttings
December 6, 2018
The trick with taking cuttings, just as with germinating seeds, is to get the cutting to root before the tissue rots or dies. You can speed up the process by using supplemental rooting hormones, which are chemicals found naturally in plant tissues.
Rooting hormones are available in gel or powder form. Dip the base of your cutting into the rooting hormone, making sure to coat the entire tip, and place it in your rooting media or substrate.
