Question about Rootone

jannie(z7 LI NY)September 29, 2006

Help! I bought a bottle of Rootone rooting rowder in 2000. I have used it sparingly, and I have about a half bottle left. Is it good after six/seven years? Do the chemicals break down over time? I keep it in a dry,dark place at room temperature. Should I toss it and buy a new bottle? There are no markings on the bottle to indicate a sell-by or use-by date. Thanks in advance.

I would suggest upgrading at this time to a mix of a liquid cutting accelorator such as Jump Start by advanced nutrients to mix with your water and a gel such as olivias cloning gel the gels work a lot better than the powders and the liquid accelorator gives it that added push

I don't know if this helps but I have a bottle of fast root
hormone from miracle gro and I just called them to put the question to them and they said it has an unlimited shelf life as long as it is kept dry..
