I know the bacterial dna can enter the distant tissues of the plant but does it always? I have many cuttings that have rooted and I'm wondering if I watch these for some time period, and they don't develop any galls, can I assume the new plants are clean? Has anyone used Actinovate? Gallex, Bacticin? It would be very easy to treat the small cuttings if that would help. All opinions and ideas welcomed!

ALL of the cuttings rooted, both the ones whose callous turned brown from the treatment, and the ones I re-cut to the next node after the hot-water tx. That doesn't usually happen for me. Could it be that the heat treatment stimulated root formation? Interesting. I measured the temperature of the water and I would estimate it to be around 122-124, so we're good!
I think another experiment is in order.
