No probs - we'll get there
So, if I've understood properly you've taken some cuttings and put them in these little jiffy pellets made of coir and peat etc. and now they've dried out.
To be honest I don't like these jiffy plugs and peat pots etc. As you say I find it very difficult to regulate the watering properly. I think they probably work for large scale commercial operations, but not so good on a small scale.
I use little second hand plastic pots for cuttings, several cuttings around the edge of a pot. They're cheap (or even given away at some garden centres), and can be washed out and reused hundreds of times, so work out even cheaper.
I also save yoghurt pots etc for the same thing - make several holes in the bottom with a hot bbq skewer and you have a little pot
