Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RSTSFTL Tried it 4 times and only 1 plant rooted
Tried to root my pothos plant that is doing really well and should be easy to root. Only 1 out of 4 cuttings rooted successfully. I've done this many times but with hormex powder. Home Depot needs to carry hormex. That stuff is gold but hard to find. I'll try one more time...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PRL95357 How I use rooting powder and get a better than 90% success rate.
Take a small amount of powder out of the main jar and place it into a small vessel like a thumb "thimble" - or shot glass if all else fails. Place some vitamin B-1 into another 'shot glass' for dipping the stem into.
Next, get your plant cutting and slice the lowest point of the stem diagonally with a razor blade just above your previous cut, right before you dip it into the B-1 water in order to stop any 'air bubble/embolism' traveling up the stem. That will help the clone continue up-taking water and nutrients normally. Otherwise, it is possible that air embolism/bubble will kill the cutting from basically suffocating and/or starving it to death.
Dip the stem to be rooted into the B-1 water and quickly dip it into "thimble" of rooting powder making sure you get a good coating of hormone all around the stem. Cover enough of the cuttings stem (1/2 inch or more) to get a good rooting action.
Then carefully place it into a peat pellet (or container of potting soil) being careful not to rub off ANY of the powder you just put on it. You might have to enlarge the hole in peat pellet before the process of putting powder onto the stem so that the hole is ready to accept the clone without rubbing off the powder. After placing your coated cutting/clone into the hole, gently 'tamp' or press the soil snugly around the cutting and 'snug it in' to its new home.
Then, "Folliar feed" it (spray bottle mist) it a PH balanced mild fertilizer solution till the soil dries and then water as usual till you see new green pushing at the inter-nodes. You're done! :) That is how I do it and I get a better then 95% success rate. Good luck!

The BONIDE Rooting Powder contains 0.10% Indole 3 Butyric Acid. This is exactly the same ingredient as is in the Schultz Rooting Powder. All rooting powders have some limitations and specific instructions for proper use and best results.

0% success on any plants. The worst rooting Hormone ever. Buy schutz rooting hormone to get at least 90% success.
