Boy Sean - I don't want you to feel bad, but I have a hard time killing Ti Plants. I have cut the cane and let it lay in the dirt for months, then it gets partially buried and ends up growing again. I don't know what to suggest, as it sounds as if you know a little about growing stuff, and have tried water rooting, etc. What type are you trying to root. Can you show us a few pics? Have you let the cut callous over a day or two before putting it in water or the wet media. What exactly is happening when you try to root them. Are they rotting?
