As you can see I use small pots to root my cuttings, 1.5" for Miniatures & Dwarfs, 2" for the rest. The pots once filled with cutting mix, are then stood in a saucer of water until wet.
I then make a hole with a dibber, into which the cutting is placed. Firm the compost around the cutting with fingers, and of course ensure it has a label. When the cutting dries out it is stood in a saucer of water until sufficiently wet. I do not personally
believe in spraying cuttings whilst rooting.
