Hortus IBA

Propagate Plants from Cuttings Using Solutions.

Take plant cuttings, usually stem, root or leaf cuttings. Woody cuttings are usually wounded by making a 3/4" notch at the basal end. Herbaceous cuttings are not wounded. Make up a fresh Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts or Rhizopon Water Soluble Tablets solution using the appropriate concentration. Using the Spray Drip-Down Method first plant then treat. Using the Immersion, Quick Dip, or the Total Immerse Method first treat then plant. Take care of the cuttings.

Herbaceous plants, such as chrysanthemum, are easy to treat using low concentrations by the Spray Drip Down Method or Total Immerse Method. The Total Immerse and Spray Drip Down methods can be used interchangeably. The active ingredients are absorbed into the leaves and stems the transported to the basal end where it induces root formation. The active ingredients are transported through the phloem to the basal end. It induces cell diffusion and root induction in the presence of oxygen and water. These methods retard bud formation; the cuttings to put their energy into root formation.

 

 

 

The Spray Drip Down Method

Spray Drip Down Method.

First plant the cuttings then treat them. Spray the solution evenly over the cuttings until drops go down to the media.

Herbaceous Cuttings, Chrysanthemum, Begonia, Dieffenbachia, Heath, Hibiscus, etc.:
50-250 ppm IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.

For cuttings which take a long time to root, or when roots of cuttings are killed by root fungus periodically spray solution on leaves and stems until drip down into media:
50-250 ppm IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.

     
Total Immerse

Total Immerse Method.

First totally immerse the cuttings in the solution for a few seconds then plant them. Broad leaf cuttings are especially suited for this method. You can use a basket to dip the cuttings in a tub. Prevent bruising by not placing too many cuttings in the solution at once. Allow time for the solution to dry on the cuttings before watering, misting or covering. The temperature of the solution should be at least equal to the cutting temperature. A cold solution temperature causes the stomata of the cuttings close; the amount of active ingredients absorbed is reduced.

Herbaceous Cuttings, Chrysanthemum, Plumbago, Ivy, Clematis, Delphinium, Lavender, Ficus, Potted Rose Bushes, etc.:
50-250 ppm IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.
Softwood Cuttings, Buddleia (Butterfly Bush), Hydrangea, Pieris, Hedera (Ivy), etc.:
50-300 ppm IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.
Hardwood Cuttings, Conifers, etc.:
200-500 ppm IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.


Rhizopon AA Water Soluble Tablets:
When converting the above measures for
Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts:
1 Rhizopon AA Water Suluble Tablet =
50 mg IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.

     
The Basal Immerse Method

Basal Long Soak Method

Use the Basal Long Soak Method on cuttings which are more difficult to root or are more woody. A long soak of the cuttings in a low concentration solution causes the plant tissues to absorb the active ingredients. Use this method on plants which may be sensitive to high concentration used in the Quick Dip Method. Immerse the basal end of cuttings approximately one inch in the solution for 12-25 hours nominal. Plant the cuttings immediately or cuttings can be stored  in cold storage.

Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts:
Herbaceous cuttings:
50-150 ppm IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.

Herbaceous and Woody Cuttings, including hard to root cuttings and rootstocks:
150-250 ppm IBA
as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.

Rhizopon AA Water Soluble Tablets:
When converting the above measures for
Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts:
1 Rhizopon AA Water Suluble Tablet =
50 mg IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.

     
Basal Quick Dip Method

Quick Dip Method

First treat the cuttings then plant them. Immerse the basal end of cuttings approximately one inch in the solution for a few seconds. Plant the cuttings immediately. Use the lowest possible concentration of tablets to achieve the desired results. An excess concentration may result in a reduced numbers of roots formed, phyto toxicity, shock, excessive callus, and rooting inequality.

Herbaceous Cuttings, Tropical Plants, House Plants, Roses, etc.:
150-500 ppm IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.
Chrysanthemum:
200-500 ppm IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.
Softwood Cuttings:
500-1000 ppm IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.
Hardwood Cuttings:
500-2000 ppm IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.
Difficult to Root Cuttings:
5000-20000 ppm IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.

Rhizopon AA Water Soluble Tablets:
When converting the above measures for
Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts:
1 Rhizopon AA Water Suluble Tablet =
50 mg IBA as Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.
