    I am going to take some cutting from citrus trees, date palms, oleanders, aloe, and mini roses. I was going to order some Rootone but it said it was for ornamental trees only. Can i use this on all types of cuttings or do I have to buy one kind for citrus, one for flowers, and so on?

    I use root tone on all the things I start from cuttings. I had used It on a cactus that had a babby coming out from the side I thourley put root tone where it was exposed. Then I put it about a haf of an inch deep in the ground (pot) and keep the soil wet. It has ben a couple months I think it has put down roots! Where are you orerding root tone from? The store That I uste to get it from has closed :( and I am running low!

    I believe the selection of rooting hormone is determined by the type of cutting to be propagated, whether softwood, semi-hardwood, or hardwood. For example have a look at this product line. The only difference is in the concentration of the hormone.

    Thank you for the comments. This site is great. Most of the cutting i am taking are from citrus trees. I have orange, grapefruit, tangelo, lemon, some pomegranite, plum, peach, and cactus.
