You can make a 'Cloning' Rooting GEL' using Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts

How to make a 'Cloning' Rooting GEL':

  • Using Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts mix in water to make a rooting solution at any concentration.
  • Add the gel powder (from horticultural suppliers) or corn starch powder (from the retail food market) to the rooting solution. Warm solution temperature is best. Add the powder until you get needed ‘gel peaks' or somewhat watery solution as needed.
  • The resultant 'concentration' is defined as ‘parts per volume’. The rooting 'gel' will be higher volume than the original water based rooting solution.

The term 'Cloning' Rooting GEL' is all about marketing from companies that make expensive 'one pony' products.

Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts and Rhizopon AA Water Soluble Tables are better choice:

  • Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts and made into cloning "GELS" have an INFINITE range of concentrations
    The corn starch approach is an INEXPENSIVE WAY to make GELS.
