Make Rooting Solutions using Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts

Calculate the Weight of Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts to make any ppm IBA Rate & Liquid Volume (makes K-IBA rooting solutions)

PREPARATION NOTES see below

Each line in the calculator below has it's own calculation for unit volumes (in liters, ml, gallons, quarts or fluid ounces) and the weight of Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts (in grams or ounces).

RE-CALCULATE if you change the ppm IBA or number of unit volumes on a line ---

WHAT IS "ppm"?
"ppm" is an abbreviation of parts per million.

ppm is a value that represents the part of a whole number in units of 1/1,000,000 (one millionth).

In practice, an IBA (K-IBA) solution can be made to liquid unit volumes of ounces pints, quarts, gallons, milliliters, liters, or whatever.
An IBA (K-IBA) solution can be made to 100 ppm IBA to liquid units such as 10 ml, 10 liter, or 10 gallon, etc.
This table calculates the weight of Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts per liquid unit volumes.

NOTE:
To weigh Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts to make a solution as described in technical information, where 100% techical K-IBA or IBA was used, you need five times the weight of Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts.
The label reads "Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts (20%)" indicating it contains 20% IBA.
As benefit, you can use a lower resolution scale, precise weighing is lesser critical

PREPARING A HORTUS IBA WATER SOLUBLE SALTS® (20%) SOLUTION USING WATER
1) Weigh the required amount of Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts. Measure by weight not volume.
2) Use tap water at about 65-90F; measure less then the final volume.
3) Mix: dissolve Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts in the water.

• If precipitation occurs with tap water then dissolve in distilled, demineralized, or filtered water.
• Do not dissolve Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts in solvents other than water.

4) Add water to the mixing container to bring the solution to the final volume.
5) Apply the solution by the selected method.
6) After use, dispose of the solution as described in the ‘Storage and Disposal’ statements on the label.

UNIT CONVERSIONS:
Liquid units are in metric liters and milliters, US gallon, quarts and fluid ounces
[1 gallon (gal) = 3.78litres = 4 quart(qt) = 128 fluid ounces(fl oz).]
Dry units are in metric grams, ounces
[1 ounce (oz av)= 28.34 grams (gm)= 2834 milligram (mg). In US and many other countries, the avoirdupois ounce is used] Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts Use water to make fresh IBA (K-IBA) rooting solutions For Distributor referral and Distributor ordering, contact: Phytotronics, 314-770-0717, sales@phytotronics.com Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts Aqueous IBA, KIBA Rooting Solutions.
