I’m trying to grow the cuttings from a dusty miller plant. I have tried scraping the white skin off and putting the cut end in water, and I’ve tried the rooting growing powder on it. The cut end always rots before roots even begin to grow. I noticed some people say they take the seeds from the dusty miller plant and grow them, but I cannot find any seeds on the plant.

Dusty miller will root from cuttings taken from semi-hard growth tips. Summer is the best time to take cuttings. Place in soil, not water. They will rot in water as you have already discovered.
