I guess it’s been 22+ years since I first started using Hormex. Every plant I divided, and also the ones that I repotted, always got a ‘dose’ of Hormex to help them get established. However, it wasn’t until I switched from houseplants to orchids that I really came to appreciate the wonders of Hormex. I now have a greenhouse full and am an American Orchid Society accredited Orchid judge. Anytime I repot or divide an Orchid, it gets some Hormex - or what I call ‘Repotting Magic’. I believe the Hormex gives plants that ‘something extra special’ to help suppress the trauma of repotting, and I have received several AOS awards which to me are proof of its ‘magical’ abilities. I even use it when I cut an Orchid inflorescence to display on my windowsill. The inflorescence lasts for several weeks. - Alice, Los Angeles, CA - More Testimonials
