In my experience, it doesn't matter, though cutting slightly below a
node, and making sure the node is at or below the soil surface when
the cutting is stuck, is the recommended method.

Not as a pure potting mix, but as an additive to a commercial mix,
possibly. The stuff is really too expensive to justify its use for
me (commercially), but you may find it useful on valuable plants
that you sometimes neglect to water properly.
