Mine are only 6inch cuttings under some LED grow light but are romping away nicely.

That's the way it goes, you lose more than you make.
Try again when the plant is in growth.

Mine are struggling to leaf out, but they're outdoors like Nature intended plants (and humans) to be.

So have I, often as not get 100% failure rate.
Tried Clonex & straight into compost, using 1litre squash bottles.
Some aren't dead yet!

I'm sure I get better results when the plants are in active leaf growth.

Its frustrating.

I took my 4 foot cuttings when I cut all stems but one back in mid November before digging up :wink:

I took my cutting about the same time . I am surprised it rooted down winter time .I have been giving it small amounts of water.

I root cut my Brugmansia sanguinea in December, and it's doing well, slow growth, but not much, it should take off nicely in summer.

I thought sanguineas were difficult to root. Mine is in leaf (outside) but hasn't flowered since Dec 2012. If I could root it, perhaps the cutting would flower? And I could discard the hopeless non-flowering mother plant...
