Collect only in the morning hours to reduce on desiccation and keep
cuttings moist/ cool at all times by placing them in cool boxes.
Square the bases of all cuttings by use of a sharp pair of scissor to
avoid one-sided rooting. Dip the cuttings in water (treated with a
slight tinge of OMO soap detergent) and treat each cutting with 0.8%
IBA hormone to a length of 1 cm from the base. Spray Dithane M45®
at 2000 ppm on all cuttings to control fungal infections.
