Answer: Hi Jaqueline, it is impossible for me to know exactly why your cuttings died after transplant, but without bottom heat it is likely that the position was a little cool and possibly too moist – the root system may have been just too young and weak to withstand the shock. You should have a better chance of a higher percentage if you take fresh cuttings now. Always use a clean fresh propagating mix for cuttings to avoid fungal problems. Pot up when roots are visible under the propagating tray
