The Dry Dip Method.
Take plant cuttings, usually stem, root or leaf cuttings.
Woody cuttings are usually wounded by making a 3/4" notch at the basal end. Herbaceous cuttings are not wounded.
From the stock container of Rhizopon AA dry powder take off enough powder for one time use.
Dip the basal end of the cuttings 3/4 to 1 inch into the powder, one by one or in small bundles.
Make sure that the powder is evenly distributed in a thin even layer (1/32 to 1/16 inch) over the whole base of the cutting. Too much powder on the cuttings might result in excessive rooting where there is surplus powder.
Root formation can be expected all over the part of the cutting covered with the powder.
Avoid contact between the powder and foliage and other over ground parts of the stem since it may cause phyto toxicity.
Tap off the excess powder.
Plant the cuttings immediately in moist media.
After treating cuttings take care of them.
Do not contaminate the stock container of powder by returning the used portion to the container.
Dispose of the used portion.
