    If there is green on it, just make sure it's in the right temps, and give it A LOT of light so that the green stem can still photosynthesise.

    Hello, this method really works...get a very sharp knife and make 2 slits on the stem where it will be placed in the substrate, about an inch up from the cut and just deep enough to penetrate the outer layer of the stem. Then place rooting hormone on these incisions and as already stated, give very strong light and high temps. All of my cuttings are automatically watered from overhead every 45 minutes during daylight hours but I cannot say this is ideal but I have next to no casualties when rooting them this way. I have seen roots formed ONLY on these 2 incisions when inspecting newly formed roots, but this is not always the case; it does stimulate roots to form...hope this helps.

    I have a N. x wrigleyana that is rooting from no leaves and only one node. I used the rooting method that ludwig777 described. Good luck!

    Good luck! My one attempt at rooting a cutting has been a slow crashing burn despite my efforts.

    There is the constant battle between needing constant moisture and the tendency to rot...this is where the strong light comes into play...must kill off some of the rot...keep trying.
