The Basal Long Soak Method

Using the Basal Long Soak Method you can propagate plants from cuttings that are difficult to root. It is also used on easier to root cuttings. Both hard to woody plant cuttings and herbaceous cuttings benefit.
•   You dip the basal end of the cuttings into the Rooting Solution for 24-48 hours then stick
•   Low Rooting Solution rates are used. Basal Long Soak eliminates high rates by the Quick Dip Method rates or Dry Dip rooting powders.
