    Vegetative propagation of Monkey Puzzles

    You used to be able to buy seed from Chilton seeds, a mail order seed company. Are you dipping the cuttings in rooting hormone powder? A heated propergator sounds good, I would assume a high humidity is needed but as already stated the media needs to open/free draining
