WHICH STENGTH OF HORMEX ROOTING POWDERS SHOULD I USE WITH MY PLANTS?

Hormex Rooting PowdersWith Hormex Rooting Powders, root and grow plants from cuttings, including fruits and vegetables, faster and healthier than ever before. We offer five strengths to ensure the perfect level of accelerated root growth.

Due to the nature of our Hormex rooting powders, they provide anti-fungal properties which help to prevent root rot.

As a result, Hormex’s famous Snip N Dip rooting powders are used by some of the world’s top growers and have been proven to produce roots faster and more uniformly than any other available rooting product. Therefore, you get truly unrivaled cloning success! (Beware of gel-based products. They provide the perfect environment for root rot because plants get too much moisture and not enough oxygen.)

* For plant species or varieties that not listed, always start with a lower strength first. Hormex Rooting Powders #3 & #8 are the most popular and well rounded. Especially relevant, always keep in mind that a higher strength doesn’t always mean better or faster rooting.
