For cuttings when transplanting, take fresh cuttings and dip the open end into RootMax powder. Prepare a slightly moist, sterile growing medium and create small holes for planting. Place the dipped cuttings into the holes, firm the medium around them, and water lightly to settle the soil and activate the mycorrhizae.
