Google 'willow water' or do a search for it in this forum.

ThatÂs awesome

I need to be growing a willow tree or two. I guess I need to cut down my pine and oak trees and plant 2 willows.

Coconut water has everything you need according to scientific literature. I have always found it an unmanageable attraction and breeding ground for overwhelming fungus.

The easiest way is to purchase a small amount of INDOLE BUTANOIC ACID(incorrectly known as indole butyric acid)via the internet. Have someone(a pharmacist) to weigh out 50 milligrams and dissolve in a small amount of ethyl or isopropyl alcohol. Mix the alcoholic solution with 10 grams of talc powder(Johnson's baby powder)TO FORM A THICK PASTE. Spread the paste onto a sheet of waxed paper and allow to dry in a warm place. When this is finely crumbled, a roughly 5000 ppm dust is produced. This will cause almost anything to form roots. Willow water, coconut milk, and many other substances are a complete waste of time. The season in which the cutting is taken is often of greater significance than the rooting hormone. Best of luck with a difficult task!!!

For $2 or $3 a bottle that lasts for years, why would anyone bother--boggles the mind!!
