Try to do them like in the pic next time.
Take your cut with two sets of leaf nodes and the growth tip. Trim away the lower node. leaving a single set of leaf nodes and the growth tip. The top remains intact with the leaf tips trrimmed. Make your 45deg cut directly below the trimmed leaf node, Dip into gel/rooting powder and into soil/pellet that is moist but not wet. Keep warm without much deviation in temps, keep in a fairly humid environment and keep the pellets just moist.
The cut at the trimmed node is done as that is where growth auxins are located which increases rooting success. Having just one set of leafs means less plant matter for the plant to self nourish while its rooting. The trimmed leaf tips mean less ability to transpire/photosynthesise giving the cut a better chance of diverting it's energy to the root formation.
Same as a cauliflower butt plug then?
All good things
