Root Tone

ruthann1May 7, 2006

Is there any difference between brands of root tone? Is there a specific root tone just for plumeria? Also which is better dry root tone or liquid root tone for plumeria? I have 7 cuttings to plant.

Ruthann,
I have always used the powder version with fungicide. I haven't any experience with the liquid. I usually wet the bottom of the cutting with a B-1 solution and dip it into the powder, then let it sit in a dark place for a few days if it is a fresh cutting. If it has already calloused over, I wet it, powder it, and put it into a pot with pumice and potting soil (about 50:50) water with a B-1 solution, then let it root without any additional interference.
