Dr. Root is a natural rooting inoculant that combines root growth promoting bacteria, endomycorrhizae, and aloe vera extracts to promote new root growth and root mass development. This rooting formulation contains:
- Beneficial Microorganisms (endomycorrhizae, azospirillum spp., brevibacillus, spp.,)
- Pre-Biotics (proteins, carbohydrates, etc.)
- Root Growth Promoting Substrate (aloe vera extracts, precursors to rooting compounds, seaweed extracts, and humic acids)
Container Plants (Soil / Soilless): Mix 1 tsp. (2.5 grams) – 1 TBL. (7.5 grams) of Dr. Root per gallon of water and apply to seedlings, rooted cuttings, and upon transplanting.
Seeds: Mix 1 tsp. (2.5 grams) per gallon of water (¼ tsp. per 1 Qt of water). Soak seeds for 12 hours in the Dr. Root solution. Then drain and plant seeds into the desired medium.
Clones: When clones are first taken, soak them for 15 to 30 minutes in a Dr. Root solution at 1 tsp. (2.5 grams) of Dr. Root per gallon of water. Lightly moisten the propagation plugs with Dr. Root solution and plant into plugs. Rehydrate with Dr. Root when plugs dry.
Transplanting: Mix 1 TBL. (7.5 grams) per 1 gallon of water. After planting, apply liquid concentrate over the root zone to water the plant. For best results, lightly dust the transplant hole with granular mycorrhizae before transplanting.
