Rooting tomato suckers by the moon phases

Post  Rolling Stone on 3/23/2014, 2:28 pm

Question???

 I understand when to transplant started (rooted) suckers according to phases of the moon.

However, I cannot get any info on when to cut and start those suckers.

Would it be the same as seed starting phases? Or transplanting phases? Or something else altogether?

"Tis a mystery to me.

Have you tried the Old Farmers Almanac for information?

I believe the moon phases only apply when planting outside. I've never seen any guidelines on when to root.

I would think with the waning of the moon to encourage root growth.
