    Superthrive is a concentration of B vitamins. It smells just like Marmite, which is also full of B vitamins!

    I've found it has no effect on either VFTs or sunflowers. I'd save your money personally. Or use Marmite [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Superthrive is a rooting hormone. No more, no less. It will help deliver a spurt of growth to plants that have never had it, but only does that once or twice. Otherwise, it can deal with root shock better than anything else I have tried on the market. I pull a sarr, pop it into a pot. Add peat, and water with superthrive. The plants in my care just grow without missing much except a little color.

    Has anyone here ever tested superthrive? Like after transplanting/dividing/etc some plants, use superthrive on one group and don't use supertrhive on the other.

    Yes, I did. Lost too many sarracenia without it (5 out of 30 cuts) and with it, I have had more 100% success rates with it. VFT's and sarrs react well to the cutting process, and drosera go nuts!

    Looks like it was designed by the same people who made the 'X-ray specs' adverts in the 1950s. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
