    Josh,
    Do you think it's the powder or any rooting supplement(like Dip N Gro which is a liquid)?
    I had never heard of anybody reporting bad stuff before like this, so I find this interesting-it's something I have not had a lot of luck with in the past.
    Here is an excerpt from Tony's site:


    Rooting powder is mixed with water to make a thin paste. It sticks to the stems better and reduces risk of inhaling the dust. This procedure will work without rooting powder. However it is highly recommended to speed the rooting process and reduce the risk of cuttings rotting since commercial rooting powders usually contain fungicide also. If you don't have rooting powder at least apply some sort of general fungicide.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Huh. I wondered why I had such lousy results with my last batch of cuttings. It was the rooting powder! I guess I don't have to feel like such a looser now....I can blame my tools....

    For what it's worth, I never use rooting powder or hormones, and have great results with cuttings.
