Some cuttings are hard-to-root. This may be caused by the condition of the cuttings, the maturity of the cuttings, or the timing when cuttings are taken.
Some growers ‘think’ the answer is to use a high rooting hormones rate. They usually get in-consistent rooting or no roots at all.
A better answer is to use the Basal Long Soak Method. Even though low rates are used, the cuttings have more rooting hormone stored at the basal end so that rooting is successful.
