    SirKristoff- I added a little thing of rooting hormone to your box going out today. Good luck with that cutting!

    superthrive is about worthless..........rooting hormones work but alot of times is un-needed. i have never used either and have minimal problems rooting neps other than a few thatareknown tobe difficult or atleast inconsistant. rooting hormone isa cheap insurance though and has a scientifically proven track record for helping plants root.

    about rooting hormone. I think I have some around here some place, and in fact I am trying to root two neps currently, one I care about a lot, the other is easily replaced. I am rooting them the only way I have experience, in a jar of water I change periodically. How does the rooting hormone work? Sprinkle some in the water?

    i just spray the bottom of the stem including the cut site and dip it in the powder. then put it in what i use to root, LFS. i havent had success without rooting hormone so it helps me alot. i used it on a singalana and it rooted in a matter of days(honest to god truth!!) someother i have done took a few weeks.

    humm... I'm tempted... I don't want to lose this cutting though

    Can they absorb enough water just sitting in wet LFS?

    I've both used rooting hormone and not done so, and had success both ways. If I have a valued cutting, I'd use it, personally. Certainly it doesn't hurt.

    I'm of the opinion (just an opinion!), however, that Superthrive has no actual benefit for cuttings.
