Why the rootone? Won't the inflo stem fall off anyway?

I'm guessing he's using a rooting powder that contains a fungicide. You can use any type of fungicide on the cuts.

Some cuttings won't develop foliage and roots if they have an inflo because all the energy is going to the flowers. Cutting off the inflo will promote root development and in turn foliage. It can be difficult to snip off an inflo, especially for those of us that don't get many but like Dave says.......
