We do not have information on our website for plant propagation. Take a look at the link from NC State for more information https://content.ces.ncsu.edu/plant-propagation-by-stem-cuttings-instructions-for-the-home-gardener

There are many types of rooting powder (dry) on the market. We do not recommend a specific brand. Also, you can use a soilless potting or seed starting mixture for the potting medium. You will have to experiment.
