Common Questions on Plant Propagation Methods

Why would I want to use ‘Foliar’ compared to ‘Basal’ Rooting Solution methods?
• Foliar methods are used on leafy plants in the growing season.
• Basal methods are used all year.
• Foliar methods treat cuttings uniformly. Basal Quick Dip Method may have variable treatment.
• Foliar methods use less labor then Quick Dip.

When can I turn on misters after treating by the Spray Drip Down Method?
• Growers usually wait 30-45 minutes or until the Rooting Solution dries on the leaves.

Do I need special equipment to do foliar methods?
• Most growers use standard spray equipment such as backpack sprayers, hydraulic sprayers, or hand sprayers.
• Boom sprayers can be used, but, they might require too much trouble to set up for one time use.
• Production greenhouses and nurseries where spray is done regularly have made custom spray carts to meet needs.

How many cuttings can be treated using Rhizopon AA dry powders?
• One pound of Rhizopon AA dry powder rooting hormones can treat about 30,000 cuttings.


Why do I need to use rooting hormones when I propagate ‘easy-to-root’ cuttings?
• The use of rooting hormones is NOT a waste of time; cuttings will rapidly produce high root mass and uniform roots!
