Dip’N Grow

Indole-butyric acid 1.0% 1-Napthaleneacetic 0.5%

LIQUID ROOTING CONCENTRATE

Dip’N Grow is the most effective rooting hormone available. Propagators at nurseries and universities have increased their yields by using Dip’N Grow. They’ve found Dip’N Grow to be more economical and easier to use than rooting powders.

It’s As Easy As 1, 2, 3

Mix Dip’N Grow concentrate with water
Dip basal end of cutting into solution for 3 to 5 seconds.
Place cutting in planting media with appropriate greenhouse-like environment

Mix only for immediate use. For best results once diluted, Dip’N Grow should be used within 10 hours.

Dip ‘N Grow is recommended for use on most nursery stock grown from cuttings including woody ornamentals, ground covers, deciduous hardwoods, root stock and perennials.

  • For hardwood cuttings, mix 1 part Dip ‘N Grow to 5 parts water.
  • For medium hardwood cuttings, mix 1 part Dip ‘N Grow to 10 parts water.
  • For softwood cuttings and succulents, mix 1 part Dip ‘N Grow to 20 parts water.
  • Simply dip the basal end of cutting (bottom of the stem), individually or in bunches into the diluted Dip ‘N Grow for 3-5 seconds.
  • Following dipping, place cuttings into planting medium. Keep cuttings moist and warm.

TIPS ON PLANT PROPAGATION:
Two variables are used to determine classification of cuttings as softwood, semi-hardwood or hardwood. The first is “timing”, and the second is “juvenility”. They are complimentary. Depending on what time of year you take your cuttings, it helps determine whether the cutting is “new” or “mature” growth.
While professionals propagate year around, two good times for taking cuttings are in the fall using mature dormant growth which would be classified as a
hardwood or semi-hardwood cutting, or in the spring when the cutting would be new growth or classified as a softwood cutting.

For example:
Hardwood – Applies to deciduous plants after they have lost their leaves in fall, broadleaf and needle evergreens, Juniper, Yew, Dogwood. Cuttings for needle evergreens are usually rooted under greenhouse conditions.
Semi-hardwood – May apply to broadleaf evergreens and woody ornamentals when the wood is firm and leaves have matured such as Azalea, Photinia,
Rhododendron, Magnolia.
Softwood and succulents – The emerging growth of most plants are classified as softwood. Softwood cuttings are easily bruised with a fingernail, can be easily
broken, and will wilt rapidly. Examples of softwood cuttings and succulents are ground covers, Cactus, Fuchsia, Begonia, and ice plant.

Taking and propagating cuttings:

• Choose a healthy plant when gathering cuttings.
• Cuttings are best if taken early in the morning.
• Select branch tips from vertical shoots (plant growth that is growing up) with approximately 3-4 leaves/leaf sets.
• When taking the cutting, snip at a 45° angle.
• Keep cuttings moist and cool on ice or in a plastic bag.
• Remove the lower leaves in preparation.

When cuttings are soft they need special treatment to prevent water loss and stem damage. Under these conditions, the cutting may become stressed (wilt), and
the cutting stem may be sensitive with application of concentrations that are too high. With Dip’N Grow, less concentrated is generally better than more concentrated.

If in doubt, make a greater dilution with water. Also, using a longer dip or soaking the cutting for more than 3-5 seconds, will not necessarily be better, and if the cutting is soft, may be detrimental.

Because of a variety of factors (such as climate, contaminants, condition of cuttings) can affect the results, it is recommended that a test application be made of a few cuttings prior to general application
