Hi,

Simple question..GENERALLY, when taking plant cuttings, should the cut be made below a leaf node or above?

Thanks

Roger,
Make your cutting just below a leaf, then remove the leaf.
Rooting hormone powder is also a good idea.

Hi Roger,

I'll just add some sites that have photos and drawings. They always help me when I do something for the first time.
