@agroforestry there are myriad rooting techniques I've shown here, about 2-3 years ago. They all work to some degree. I prefer sterile seed starting mix of 1/3 peat moss 1/3 perlite and 1/3 vermiculite. Sterilized by heating dampened mix to 200°F in an old microwave oven. I use cinnamon powder as antifungal (vital).

I use alaskan fish emulsion fertilizer. Comes in gallon jugs for $20. Best thee is!
yeah, I get seed pods, but cloning is easier.
