In the past, I have had success rooting my clones, by cutting them and putting them directly into a styrofoam coffee cup filled with soil. I know that peat pucks are better, but this is way less expensive and works well. All you have to remember is to punch a few drain holes in the bottom of the cup and keep the cuttings wet. Now comes the question. I have some rooting powder for hedges that I wanted to use, but a friend told me to get a hormone powder that is made especially for that kind of plant. Thing is, he did not know which powder is best for that. I don't want to kill off the clones by using something that will burn them and I figure that someone else would know more. I did hear about a product called nico..... something, but I have no idea where to find it. Keeping in mind that I live in a colder climate, most garden supplies tend to dissapear in the winter months and it makes it hard to find anything. I could keep going the way I have been doing it for years, but if I could shave a few days off the process, well, you know how it is.
