I am trying to propagate some tomatoes and peppers but not having any luck. I have tried two different methods the first time I tuck the cuttings and placed them in plastic cup with about 2 inches of water. Method 2 I also placed the cuttings in a cup of potting soil and placed the stems about 1 or 2 inches in the soil. Both times the plants did not root. Each cutting was 4-6 inches long and I always took off all the leaves but 3-5 of them. I have also tried using rooting hormone when planting them in soil. Does anyone have any suggestions that would help me propagate them?
