Rooting hormones experiment...
« on: April 23, 2017, 04:08:22 am »

Found some NAA and IBA i bought on ebay a few years ago,
read concentrations of comercial products are around 2-10%
i will be using this to document any experiments and results.

***IBA does NOT dissolve in water*** so i have a bottle of IBA floating or sinking in bottle of water lol.  :'(
i then read IBA dissolves in either 'ether or alcohol'.. which i wouldn't want any of that in a rooting solution..
So is there anything safe it can dissolve in? or maybe just use a suspended gel, or powder mix, i will try that.
The NAA is soluble in water, so i will start some tests with that one, using lemon trees and grapefruit trees.
