In tops of plants, plant hormones or growth regulators (auxins) are produced under the influence of light and heat; these are transported to that part of the plant where the roots are or should be. That is why the production of these hormones is better in summer than in winter. The best chance of the cuttings rooting is therefore the period April to July. Outside this period, the success of rooted cuttings is more difficult and often also depends on the weather. By adding external growth substances to the cuttings - rooting agent, popularly called cuttings rooting agent - the rooting of the cuttings can be helped better and faster.
As a rule, the active substance in the cutting powder is 3-Indolylbutyric acid with a content of 0.25% to 1%. Due to its composition, powder has a slow-release effect, which often gives better results than cuttings in wet or tablet form.
The use of Rhizopon powders
A pre-treatment with a growth promoter powder is one of the most widely used methods for simultaneous and uniform root formation of cuttings. Rhizopon powders, due to their composition, have a slow release effect, the so-called 'slow release effect', which can give better results than other treatments on a large number of crops. Thanks to this delayed effect, a powder treatment is also extremely suitable for cuttings that need to be transported or stored in a cold store for some time.
When working with Rhizopon cuttings powder, it is important to ensure that the powder is evenly distributed over the base of the cuttings. The cuttings could otherwise root unevenly if the powder has not been applied correctly. It is also important to prevent the powder from coming into contact with leaves or other plant parts. This can cause damage.
Treating the cuttings with powder
is simple and easy. The cuttings are dipped with the base in the powder concentration to be used, separately or in a bundle. The depth with which the cuttings are dipped determines the height to which root growth can be expected. The cuttings will form roots over the entire powdered stem surface. After the cuttings are dipped, the excess powder will be tapped off, so that the base of each cutting is evenly powder coated all around. For some applications, such as marcotting, the powder can also be applied to the area to be treated with a clean brush.
Powder dip/spray method
For crops that are difficult and slow to root, where uniformity leaves much to be desired, a combination of powder dip and spraying method is a possible solution. First the cuttings are dipped in powder and then inserted. Then a solution with Rhizopon AA tablets is dripped over the cuttings. Click here for more information.
- When working with Chryzotop make sure that the powder in a thin layer is evenly distributed over the base of the cuttings, otherwise the cuttings could root more densely in some places;
- To prevent damage, the cutting powder should not come into contact with leaves or other plant parts;
- Also do not spill the cuttings powder on the potting soil;
- The cuttings are usually dipped separately with the base in the powder concentration to be used;
- To do this, put a little bit of cutting powder on a saucer. Put the cutting 1 to 2 cm into the powder. If the powder on the base of the cuttings does not adhere sufficiently, moisten the base of the cuttings lightly first. The cuttings will form roots over the entire powdered stem surface;
- After removing the powder from the cutting(s), the excess powder is shaken off (tapped off), so that the base of each cutting is evenly coated with a layer of powder all around. To prevent the powder from shearing off/accumulating, first pierce a hole in the potting soil with a thin stick and place the cuttings in it.
Always wash your hands after cutting and avoid the powder coming into contact with foodstuffs.
Do not store plant
growth materials in a warm and humid room. Storage should be in sealed packaging in a cool dry place and in the dark.
