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.

STOCK SOLUTIONS
•   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!

METRIC SYSTEM
•   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.

WETTING AGENTS
•   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.
