Yates 50ml Purple Clonex Rooting Hormone Gel
Using clean secateurs, take a cutting just below a node (the bump along the stem where the leaf attaches) and remove the lower leaf.
Fill a clean glass with water and position the cutting so the node is submerged. Place the glass in a bright spot, out of direct sunlight.
Ensure the water remains clear and remove any cuttings that yellow or brown. Top up the water to keep the node submerged.
After three to four weeks, roots will form. Once roots are approximately 5–10cm, transplant into a small pot with good quality potting mix. Water in well with diluted seaweed solution.
Using clean, sharp secateurs, take a cutting (approximately 10–15cm) just below a node and remove the lower leaves.
Dip the end into honey or a rooting hormone, before inserting into a pot filled with seed-raising mix.
Position the pot in a bright spot, out of sunlight. Mist the soil regularly to keep it moist.
After a few weeks, when cuttings resist gentle tugs, they're ready for planting. Gently remove from the soil, check the roots, and plant in a slightly larger pot; otherwise, leave as is to continue rooting.
