    Do not contaminate the stock container by returning used portion to the container.
•   Take plant cuttings, usually 4-6 inch stem cuttings, from the current year’s growth.
•   Wound woody cuttings by making a 3/4 inch slit at the side of the basal end is optional.
    Herbaceous cuttings are not wounded.
•   Dip the basal end of the cuttings 3/4-1 inch into the Rhizopon AA powder.
    Tap off the excess powder.
•   Avoid contact between the powder and foliage and other over ground parts of the stem.
    A small amount of powder on the leaves will not affect the quality of the rooting.
•   Stick the treated cuttings in the media, or put in plastic bags and store until sticking or planting out.
    A dribble hole is useful to allow entry of the cutting into the media without pushing off the rooting powder.
•   Turn on misters as required.
•   After treatment discard used rooting powder.
