    Possible Home Depot substitutes for Neem & Rooting Hormone

    I was talking to the actual horticulturalist in the garden department and asking if we carried Neem Oil or Rootone. We don't, but we do have Schultz' Take Root ($5.28) for rooting hormone and Bonide ($6.97) as a possible substitute for Neem Oil. anybody familiar with these products?

    Rootone is .20% 1-Naphthaleneacetamide and 4.04% thiram.

    I couldn't find anything on the Schultz product. It's probably fine but you won't know which is better until you know what the ingredients are and at what concentration. I don't think anyone needs rooting hormone anyway lol.

    Bon-neem by Bonide liquid concentrate is by weight: Potassium Salts of Fatty Acids derived from Neem Seed oil, 25.00%; Inert Ingredients 75%. In otherwords, it's a soap derived from neem oil, not neem oil.

    The Schultz garden safe 3 in 1 fungicide/insecticide/mitacide I use is like... .9% clarified hydrophobic neem oil extract. I like it. It's not concentrated so it's ready to use and the only thing that's ever been bothered by heavy doses was the D. adelae.

    Bob Hope? Anyways... I was curious to see if there were easyily obtainable products.. kinda like finding a generic brand that is cheaper and easier to come by.

    So far I haven't had a real need for neem oil, but like the idea of rooting hormone to deal with my Neps. My plants are overgrown and scraggly looking and I have ~50% success with cuttings taking root, without help.
