My apologies for asking so many questions, I just want to be detail oriented to best do it right! Can you suggest a particular brand of potting mix (a link would be great). Do I need any fertilizer? I have read that many people put rooting hormone to the severed bottom, could that help? Regarding the pot, when you say small, do you suggest something like a coffee mug size? Should it have the drain with saucer at the bottom? (a web like to a suitable one would be great as well)
Also, when I stick the plant into the potting mix, how far should I stick it down? Should I give it a good watering initially and perhaps water it every week? I take it I should probably keep it near a window for sunlight.
Lastly, it appears that I have three of these baby shoots on the bottom of the dead cane, should I sever all three of them and plant them all, or can I leave some just in case? I have attached a picture of what I think you mean taking a sliver.
Thank you again Will for all your help.
