    Yeah, I used Take Root on my nepenthes cuttings. It didn't seem to do much. I then used some Rootone and all of a sudden, roots started growing. Does this mean Take Root doesn't work? Not necessarily. The cuttings developing roots and me using Rootone may have just been a coincidence. But if I had a choice between Take Root and Rootone, I'd go with the Rootone.

    Should work same as rootone then.. Check the active ingredients on that and I think you will find the same thing with maybe a fungicide in the rootone also. Perhaps your Takeroot bottle was old Larry.

    Rooting powders have a short shelf life.

    Thanks for the info Tony.
    My bottle could have been old, I got it at Home Depot.
    I believe Rootone is available in small packets, maybe I should just buy what I need at the moment.

    1-Naphthaleneacetamide................... 0.20%
    Thiram (tetra-methyl Thiuramidisulfide).. 4.04%
    Inert Ingredients:....................... 95.76%

    Schult'z Take Root
    0.1% Indole-3-butyric Acid
    99.9% other ingredients.
