Wanting to learn a new technique in propagation.  Anyone know what kind of nutrients are needed to propagate unrooted cuttings in water?  Would IBA or Gibberellic (acid 90%) be worth adding? TIA

I LOVE the Edible Acres youtube channel, and he shows a really interesting technique he is experimenting with using just rain water and an aquarium bubbler, without additional nutrients.  Definitely on my spring "list of things to do".

That is interesting.  I may try that too.
 
No more fooling around. Read this tiny ad:
