While rooting hormone certainly doesn’t hurt, it’s not always necessary to root plants. Many plant cuttings can be successfully rooted without the use of rooting hormones. This is generally a preference thing. If it works best for you, then go for it. They type doesn’t really matter either. Rooting hormone should be available in most garden centers and usually comes in a little jar.
