How to use Root Stimulator?

anghellicMay 27, 2010

I know it sounds like a moronic question. I have post traumatic stress disorde., My Doctor recomended gardening to calm my nerves, But I live on the second floor of an apartment. So I choose Bonsai, which is something I am already familiar with. I am going to start by using the clipping method (of bonsai) of certin genus of trees. How would I use a root stimulator in this case?

One person recomended I dip the clippings into the root stimulator & letting it soak in a cup of water. To me it seems the tree-clipping would drowned. All help will be appriciated.

Thank you very much.

"Root stimulators" increase the bulk of roots after they have already formed..... "Rooting Hormones" promote initial root growth. where thre is none.....
its a matter of language of propagation but an important difference
