Hi,

I do something similar with hot wax to seal terminal ends of mid-section cuttings
that I am rooting.  I figure it keeps out disease, and seals moisture in.

I just keep a large candle burning on my potting bench and place the terminal tip
of the cutting into the melted wax slug below the flame.  Simple and sealed

Regards,
Tom
