Charles I agree with livetaswim06 if you able to find Hydro Shop in your area they have all kind of coco coir.
I bought mine from Local Hydro Shop for $11.00 please see post #1 which shows picture of coco coir I used with all my cuttings including yours.

Naeem I also use Cocco Coir medium for my cuttings and I usually use Canna Aqua Vega two part solution at this stage where your cuttings are now. I have observed significant growth within week or two. The fertilizer is little expensive but worth every penny, particularly if you are rooting expensive and rare varieties.

Ateeq your cuttings soon to be plants looking great and I am very impressed.  I am about five weeks behind to reaching this size.

So you bottom feed Canna Aqua Vega, it look like yours are out from humidity bins right . Mine are still in the bins.

I am little hesitant to use any fertilizer but will try on some.

I don't really think it's needed to add much fertilizer to seedlings, but Foliage Pro would work great at half of maintenance strength at first. Hydro shops should have it, and if not it can be had on Amazon for a little more $.

Speaking of weak fertilizer, two capfulls of superthrive (from walmart) in one gallon of water works good.

Thanks Naeem. Just make sure whichever fertilizer you use it has to be very weak solution. Something like 1:10 ratio.

Wow, Ateeq! That looks fantastic. I'm going to have to use what you're using. That is certainly impressive.

Thanks Ateeq I will be very careful with fertilizer if applied may be on two cuttings for test.

Everything looking good except some wilting cuttings please see today's picture.  Also I am exposing cuttings to room temperature while leaving bin cover off for 
30 minutes with no set back and I will increase time slowly. Also cuttings are getting misting once a day to adjust to room temperature.
