Kitty Litter is Good for What???!!

Start Seeds in Kitty Litter

Regular, fragrance-free kitty litter makes a great seed starting medium. It remains moist but not soggy and provides lots of spaces between particles for good root development. I fill seedling trays with moistened kitty litter, sow seeds on the surface, then sprinkle a shallow layer of peat moss over the seeds. Seedlings started this way won’t develop damping-off disease.

Now, having said that, this means
it would be good for propagating softwood cuttings!?!
