    I've been seeing your questions all over the boards this morning, IMO, you would have greater benefits if you were to get yourself a grow book and sit down and give it a good read. believe it or not, it will answer most all of your questions. and will proly give you a whole new list of more specific questions. ~Stoney~

    I know several people who have varied opinions on rooting hormones, one guy I know swares by using a gel and a powder together in a simple system that he's achieved 100% success with; You make the first cut (off the plant) about an inch longer than normal, then submerge the cut end in a solution of water, rooting powder, mycorrhizal fungi + trichoderma + beneficial bacteria (like Mykos, Plant Success/Great White) and make a second cut (45* angle of course) while submerged in the solution, this process not only ensures that an air embolism doesn't occur but also causes the rooting hormone & beneficial microbes to get drawn up into the stem, this is very simple and effective. After you make the final cut in the solution you immediately dip the cutting into a rooting gel, then into a rooting powder tapping off excess and into your medium. I know another guy who says he's had dam near 100% success with just using a cheap rooting powder like Take Root and he says he uses a VERY small amount, to each their own I guess. As for which is the best I'm not sure, I've personally had 100% success with the cheap Take Root powder, I took 16 clones off a White Widow using it and all of them rooted.
    On another subject you should listen to the advice of getting a grow guide, I highly recommend Growing Elite Marijuana by Ryan Riley, it covers practically everything you need to know. Good luck.
