Bad luck with cuttings
I've been trying recently to do some cutting propogation (African Violets, various cacti, succulents, etc). I've used different rooting gels in an attempt to find the best one for the plants I'm using. However... so far I'm having no results whatsoever. I am in a temperature controlled greenhouse with a mister to keep humidity up (I also have orchids in there but thats a different topic). I've read up on how to take the cuttings, how to use the gels, etc. But still - every single cutting I have taken has died before producing roots. I need someone's help before I chuck the whole thing in the garbage and give up. I'm using potting soil mixed with vermiculite to keep aeration up, I've used rooting solutions in the soil, rooting hormone gels, and tried different ways of taking the cuttings but still no luck! The only thing I haven't managed to mess up so far is the cacti that bud off a new one complete with roots.
