Make a hole bigger than the stem in the rooting medium. If the hole is too small, the rooting powder is scraped off upon insertion. You can also spray cuttings with a single foliar spray of dilute IBA (50-90 ppm). Be careful to spray just enough to cover leaves. Spray should not drip off leaves. An IBA overdose slows growth, makes leaves dwarf, and could even kill the cutting. Some gardeners soak their cuttings in a dilute solution (20-200 ppm IBA and/ or NAA) for 24 hours. But I have seen few gardeners use this time-consuming technique.

Pruning all the branches or removing more than 20 percent of the foliage in a short time frame stresses plants too much and diminishes harvest. But if taking cuttings, some gardeners effectively prune a mother down to stubby branches and let her recuperate for a month or longer. Pruning too much over time may alter hormonal concentrations, causing spindly growth. The mother must rest and gain girth, because small, spindly branches root poorly. Tomatoes benefit from removing all but the four main branches.

Embolisms occur when you take big cuttings and lay them on thecounter before placing in water or a growing medium. When an embolism happens, fluid flow stops and cuttings die. After taking cuttings, immediately dip them in water or a growing medium to prevent air from becoming trapped in the hollow stems. Eliminate the threat of an embolism by taking cuttings under water. Cuttings root well within a pH range of five to six. Aeroponic cutting gardens normally do best with a pH of five to five and a half.
