Use honey as a rooting hormone. Prepare cuttings and dip ends of the cuttings in honey.

I recently saw a gardener using honey as a propagating hormone. Was the honey raw honey or will processed honey also work?

As far as I know honey doesn't have any hormones in it that plants would use for growing roots. However, I could be very wrong about that! Honey is a really good anti-bacterial agent, which would help to keep diseases out of the plant's wound opening while it grows roots of its own accord. I haven't tried using honey on cuttings but I'm certainly going to give it a shot!
