How do you use Dip N Grow?

bluegirl_gwMay 23, 2013

I usually use Rhizopan #3, but read so many good comments about DNG.

So what concentration do you use? How long do you let the cuttings sit in it?

I dilute it with 1 part Dip N Grow and 4 parts water. I dip for 5 seconds.

For hardwood cuttings in wraps, in the late winter-early spring time frame, I mix it to about a 12.5% concentration (half way between the 10 and 15 indicators on the included beaker) and let them soak for a count of six. (one thousand one, one thousand two, etc.) It's great stuff! You can vary the concentration tremendously and it seems to last forever and remain effective. Kim

I have had Zero luck with Dip N Gro. I think I am using too strong a solution for the size cuttings I have. I've been using 1 part to 5 parts water. Have had zero success. I used to have about 60 - 75% success with powdered Homex (I think it is called). I plan on trying a much weaker solution in the near future. Will report back.

1 part concentrate to 5 parts water is too strong. I use the concentrate to the indicated line in the plastic vial included in the package then fill it to between the 10 and 15 indicators and it works like a charm. I love how it doesn't gum up like the powders can. I've used it exclusively for several years in the concentrations stated and it hasn't failed me yet. Kim

Thanks for the responses. I didn't have any luck with it years back but I bet I was using it at too strong a concentration. Have a new bottle to try for this spring's cuttings.
