To make 100 ppm IBA dissolve 0.5 gm. in 1 liter of water
PREPARING A ROOTING SOLUTION
• Weigh the required amount of Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts. Measure by weight not volume (no scoops).
• Use tap water at about 65-90°F; measure less then the final volume of water.
• Do not dissolve Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts in liquids other than water.
• Mix: dissolve Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts in water.
• Add water to the mixing container to bring the Rooting Solution to the final volume.
• Apply the solution by the selected method.
• Store the solutions properly
• After use, dispose of the solution as described in the ‘Storage and Disposal’ statements on the label.
AVOID CROSS CONTAMINATION OF SOLUTIONS
• For the Total Immerse, Basal Quick Dip and Basal Long Soak Methods dispose of Rooting Solutions between plant lots to avoid cross contamination.
• Using the Spray Drip Down Method the Rooting Solution is used one time and there is no cross-contamination. Solutions can be used completely.
• Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts mixed in water to make stock Rooting Solutions can be made in any concentration up to 100,000 ppm IBA!
• Use the metric system when calculating the ppm IBA for Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts Rooting Solutions. The system allows for easy calculation of liquid volume to concentration.
• Rooting Solutions made with Hortus IBA Water Soluble Salts are specially formulated to have a low surface tension needed for foliar methods. Additional wetting agents are not recommended.
ROOTING SOLUTION WATER QUALITY
• Ordinary tap water usually used to make Rooting Solutions.
• If the Rooting Solution is clear, having a small amount of particles, then the active ingredient is in solution and ready to use.
• Hard, well or pond water may reduce solubility; in those cases use another source such as filtered or demineralized water.
AVOID CONTAMINATION OF SOLUTIONS
• The Spray Drip Down Method uses the Rooting Solution one time. The Rooting Solution cannot be contaminated by the dragging-in of organic materials. For storage see below.
• The Basal Quick Dip, Total Immerse, and Basal Long Soak Methods use the Rooting Solution by having the plant material dipped into them. To avoid cross-contamination, use fresh Rooting Solutions between production lots.
• Dispose the used Rooting Solutions at the end of the production day. Do not store used solutions.
