|It works very well and fast Colleen. The damp vermiculite tends to pack down so you'll want a table fork to lift up under the cuttings so you won't break off roots when checking or removing rooted cuttings. If you live in an area with mosquitoes get some Mosquito Dunks and put a piece of it in your center pot.
"The Universe speaks in many languages, but only one voice. It speaks in the language of hope; It speaks in the language of trust; It speaks in the language of strength, and the language of compassion. It is the language of the heart and the language of the soul. But always, it is the same voice. It is the voice of our ancestors, speaking through us, And the voice of our inheritors, waiting to be born. It is the small, still voice that says: We are one. No matter the blood; No matter the skin; No matter the world; No matter the star; We are one. No matter the pain; No matter the darkness; No matter the loss; No matter the fear; We are one. Here, gathered together in common cause. we agree to recognize this singular truth, and this singular rule: That we must be kind to one another, because each voice enriches us and ennobles us, and each voice lost diminishes us. We are the voice of the Universe, the soul of creation, the fire that will light the way to a better future. We are one."

|Yep, I sound like a broken record (a cracked CD?) because I rave about the Forsythe pot method so much. Wrote an article about it:
Using the Forsythe pot method I took a single $3 plant and propagated 98 plants just to test the method.
