I've just taken a cutting from a Senecio

What's the best way to ensure it will root?
I've put it into some water in a pint glass, should I add rooting powder and where do I get it from??

On plant Senecio




by taking stem cuttings in summer. Treat the cuttings with a rooting hormone and place in river sand till the roots have formed. Stems touching the ground as they grow may often form roots and can be cut off the main plant and grown on successfully.
