One cutting per pot mate. :)

I struggle like this too.

I do what you did and fail 80% of the time.

I just have to take ten times as many as I need.

Sometimes I resort to putting loads in each pot then only one pot takes and I have to untangle the roots and repot. But at least I got a few rooted.

 

Bad advice I know, but I am shit.

Get rid of all the fan leaves, the plant doesn't need or can support them at this stage.

Trim the stems down below the last node before the top and re-plant...you might be able to save them.

Just leave them be mate and make sure they are in high humidity. Sometimes plants can take up to three weeks to root. 

 

Patience my friend :)

One thing that I seem to have noticed is that cuttings from healthy well fed plants do better as they have the internal stores of energy to make roots.

 

And a constant temp of around at least 25 Celsius but keep the humidity up especially if things are warm. I use a heat pad with an air gap to stop it getting too hot, then tray of cuttings on top, especially in the winter.

Soil not too wet or dry. Water from bottom to avoid compaction of soil. I have had better success in rockwool and some in cocoa, with a bag over top for humidity, but when rooted might need to feed something mild to build roots before transfer to soil.

Indica strains can be difficult to root and veg slow but flower fast.

 

My multi-purpose jacks magic is probably not the best for taking cuttings. Tends to compact and go foul unless occupied by a vigorous plant. Maybe seedling compost with some perlite would be better.
