Can I use this on my carnation? ):

Sure you can do it with confidence, I have been using it, on my newly planted sprouts and so far so good.

Will this work on fruit tree too?

Asked by Michael May 13, 2019
4
Answers

I have used this on woody shrub stems with success so I assume it would also work on fruit tree cuttings. Be sure to not use too large of a cutting; cut one side at a sharp angle for at least an inch. Coat the entire bottom up past the one inch cut with the rooting powder and put in a pre-made hole in the rooting medium so you don't rub the powder off. Maintain moisture in the rooting medium and enclose in a plastic bag to maintain high humidity. I usually keep out of direct sunlight and check in a few weeks for root formation. Ideally you should take cuttings during moon signs of Cancer, Libra, and Scorpio during light of the moon phases.

Is this product also good for orchids ?

Thank you for your question. Our product hasn't been tested on orchids so we cannot guarantee the results.

can you use this with a loblolly pine tree cutting? If not, any suggestions on what can be used?

Asked by mark June 19, 2017

Answers

This specific product, which has the lowest concentration (0.1%) you'll find in any commercial rooting powder of just one rooting hormone (indole-3-butyric acid) is unlikely to be very effective on any pine species (or most evergreens) which are typically "difficult to root". I'd strongly recommend doing some specific Web research on propagating that particular pine species to see what strength and composition is recommended by experts (like professional nursery growers, or state university agricultural extension offices), but I'd be very surprised if a weak, "general purpose" rooting product is effective in this case. Fwiw, Hormex makes stronger products that are relatively accessible to average consumers (like their No. 5 or No. 8 powders, which have five and eight times the amount of IBA this one has, respectively) but since the stronger products are expensive and since it takes a long time for any evergreen to root in the best of circumstances, I'd definitely do some research before spending a lot of time and money on the trial-and-error approach.

Can you put the treated cutting in a bottle or a vase filled with water, instead of potting soil?

I have used it for rose branches and most of them grew. Would recommend cutting the branch bottom diagonally, dip it in the substances and plant.

Had taken my Germaniums indoors after the summer and put them under lights so I could grow and propagate more for this Spring season. I needed rooting hormone to root the cuttings I took from the mother plant. All went well and I was able to root over 20 cuttings, so I expect to save a ton of money this year by not having to buy new plants as I have done in the past. Next year will do the same with other plants we love to plant in planters around my home. Worth doing and the product does what it is supposed to do.
