Yes, I need as much info like the one you posted. I am having trouble rooting cuttings. They rot when I use soil.
So far, this is the first time I am starting to see a little progress with my cuttings adeniums are harder to root from cuttings than plumerias because they rot fast. I can't take a victory lap yet though.
I will try the above on my next batch of cuttings. Of course it always depend on the age of the cuttings and the growing conditions. I have a lot of friends that are more into flowers than caudex. So I am hoping I can grow more cuttings to share blooming adeniums
Last month we talk about air layering on Adeniums, I did one yesterday..
The cutting, make sure to tie a stick to support before cutting
Done, hope it will root, will update in 2 months

I gave you the real acorns under the chat . I was out taking a look, which ones will qualify for air layering.
Did you just use a regular potting soil?
Winter is coming, I think its better if you do the air layering at spring
on the potting soil, I prefer something light and can hold a lot of water, I use cocopeat + charcoal husk for this. But basically any media will do, if you want to use garden soil, make sure there are no parasite in it. For media that is heavy, arrange some stick to support the media, the stem of the adeniums may not be able to support the weight.

I am thinking more and more about air layering but most of my tall or long branches are still green. So next spring will be the best time to try.

2 of mine rotted...again
