    Rob,

    I have the stuff(I don't always use it), but what you did seems to me a good indication of it's effects.
    I thought it helped bare- rooted plants I received aclimate, but it may just be soaking the roots in a watery solution for a half-hour that maybe helped, lol. Most Nepenthes roots are black and brittle on the plants I receive, as opposed to black and fleshy on, say, a Drosera.

    Regards,


    Joe

    Joe,

    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] Black and brittle sounds a bit odd to me. Black and soft with white tips to each root should be the norm. If it has the white tips, then it's sure not to be infected with any root rot fungi.

    Maybe I explained it poorly, but then again, maybe I have received lousy plants,lol, cough, cough.
    Many TC plants I have received seemed to have a large net of thin, black roots, but they were pretty fine(and amazingly long for such small plants-I have received rooted cuttings of large plants that had smaller root bundles).

    Regards,

    Joe
