I started two Pelargonium cuttings in water in early March. They both rooted beautifully, but when I planted them into potting compost, both rotted off. What did I do wrong?
The end is nothing, the journey is all.

I usually start my cuttings in sandy soil.
I wonder if watering with dilute peroxide would help prevent the rot ?
