To cut is to wound, and the natural tendency of a wounded organism is to do what is necessary to survive. When propagation occurs, it is because of the plant’s innate response to the wound even if we would like to think the plant wills itself to create future generations to sustain the environment. If that were so, propagation outcomes would be predictable but they are not. Depending on what kind of cutting you make, a liquid or powder Hormex product can be your best ally in the process. Choose powdered Hormex for woody plant cuttings taken from tips and stems, and use liquid Hormex for beds of root cuttings and canes laid sideways in a flat or pot. Green plant cuttings of any sort can be dipped in powder or soaked in liquid Hormex or watered with it.
