Any tips for getting a segment or small cutting to root? Would dipping it in rooting hormone powder help?

Hi Jorge

i have not noticed any benefits from using (standard) rooting powder with Hatiora herminiae.

But if you just put the cutting on the ground, it will develop roots, though this will take maybe 3-4 weeks. Spraying will help to prevent the cutting to dry out before it will be able to live again on its roots. But this is a very strong specie where even a single stem can root again.
As soon as roots appear you can put a liitle bit of soil on it to help the bare roots not to dry out.

Also for this specie, use very open soil, but not to coarse.
