Trial Rates for the Basal Quick Dip Method
A wide solution trial
rate range is indicated for the Basal Quick Dip Method.
• Make rooting solutions using Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts® and Rhizopon® AA Water Soluble Tablets
• Your ideal rates will vary according to specific plant variety, season, quality of the cuttings, and local growing conditions.
• Prior to large scale production, test a few plants at several rates within the range.
• Use the trial rate charts as a starting point.
• Use on cuttings in the growing season and winter dormant cuttings.
• Immerse basal end of cuttings approximately 1" in Rooting Solution for about five seconds.
• Stick immediately or store.
TRIAL RATES are ppm IBA using Water-based Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts® Rooting Solutions
• For Rhizopon® AA Water Soluble Tablets see the conversion table

*SEE THE NOTE BELOW*
Some cuttings are hard-to-root. This may be caused by
the condition of the cuttings, the maturity of the cuttings, or the timing when
cuttings are taken.
Some growers ‘think’ the answer is to use a high rooting hormones rate. They usually get in-consistent rooting or no roots at all.
A better answer is to use the Basal Long Soak Method. Even though low rates are used, the cuttings have more rooting hormone stored at the basal end so that rooting is successful.
