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.

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.
