   Where to Buy

  • Use only on ornamental cuttings. Established plants and their roots are not affected.
  • Use a sharp, sterilized knife or pruner to take 4- to 6-inch cuttings from soft stems or new, immature woody stems. Work during the active growing season for best results on most plant types.
  • Keep cuttings protected and moist, and remove all but the top set of leaves.
  • Pour a small amount of the rooting hormone into a shallow dish. Do not mix with water.
  • Moisten the end of a cutting slightly, and then dip it into the dish, thoroughly covering the tip and at least one exposed leaf node. Tap to remove any excess.
  • Insert cutting at a slight angle into a tray of rooting medium, such as a light potting mix, perlite, sand or a commercial rooting mix designed especially for cuttings.
  • Discard any rooting hormone remaining in the shallow dish when finished. Do not return it to the original container or you risk contaminating the rest of the product.
  • Place the rooting tray inside a plastic bag or cover it with plastic to form a mini-greenhouse, and then place in indirect light.
  • Mist and water, as needed, to keep cuttings hydrated and rooting medium moist while roots grow.
  • Transplant rooted cuttings once roots establish well and new growth appears.
  • Read the product label and follow application instructions thoroughly.
