    I actually only use rooting powders. Never had any success with the gels..
    The powder seems to promote quicker root production with a higher success rate. Even though ive had great success without using hormones if any kind, I do prefer to raise the odds in my favor.

    for those who use powder, what is your peferred brand? it seem like gels are all the rage these days and the powders are barely talked about in the modern plant grower circles.

    thanks alot!

    Rootone is the best known of the powders and originally contained Indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) as a source of root-inducing auxin -- now replaced by NAD or 1-Naphthaleneacetamide, along with Thiram, a fungicide . . .

    Mach -- nice to know that they have a product closer to its original formulation with IBA and NAA as well . . .
