Success: Dan's Method
I used Dan's method for all of my cuttings (after my first heartbreaking loss from overwatering) and have lost 5 cuttings out of more cuttings than I am willing to admit to publicly. Those 5 were all from the same batch, never put out roots and never sprouted leaves. Instead of molding, they just rotted and smelled like ammonia. I suspect that they froze during shipping.
I discovered that some varieties are much more sensitive to excessive moisture than others (Mary Lane seemed to be the most sensitive.)
Otherwise things have gone fairly well as you can see below.
