Hi. Thanks for the tip. Home made rooting hormone compounds come in handy. I've heard of putting willow branches cut into 1'' lengths and put in a jar of water. After about a week take out the branches and the liquid is supposed to be the compound. I wonder if it would work with any fast rooting plant? I have a scrub tree in my back yard. All I have to do is nick one of the roots and it sends up shoots like crazy.
