Customer Reviews

It worked as he said it would, and he is very satisfied.
Darlene Crosby
My cuttings that had been dipped into the root hormone powder before being planted experienced growth that far exceeded those that had been planted without it.

This review is about the word "organic" in the name of this product.

Not mentioned in the Amazon description (but shown in the photo) is that this product contains 0.1% IBA (indole-3-butyric acid), a synthetic plant hormone. Powdered rooting hormone is usually available in 3 formulations: 0.1%, 0.3%, and 0.8% IBA. The lowest concentration is used for "soft" cuttings, like African violets, plumerias, mums, carnations though some harder wood plants can also use this. Woodier cuttings need hormone at the 0.8% concentration. You can Google "Hormodin product label" for a PDF of what plants should use which formulation. The 0.1% concentration is safe to use on all cuttings while stronger concentrations can damage or even kill more sensitive plants.

I use this product mostly for roses and plumerias as a disinfectant. I'm not sure of its exact role in the promotion of roots (rooting results can vary greatly based on a number of conditions, including weather, cutting health, plant variety, or just pure luck), but one benefit I am sure about is the anti-fungal properties of the powder. I am obsessed with plumerias and have ordered at least 2 dozen cuttings off eBay this year. Using this prevented my plumeria cuttings from rotting. The cuttings I did not treat with powder started to rot from the bottom up. With periodic checking I saved my cuttings by cutting off the rotted part and treating with Green Light.

To use, all you have to do is wet the cutting in water so that the powder sticks to it, then dip the cutting into the bottle. Tap off any excess powder, make a hole and gently firm up the rooting medium around the cutting. I've use Miracle-Gro Perlite (alone or mixed with 30-50% soil) with fantastic results.

My uncle's garden is in an extremely humid area (central Texas) and he has recurring problems with fungus on tomato cuttings. The old Rootone formula with fungicide used to work like a charm. Once that was taken off the market, virtually all the current offerings have nothing but the rooting hormone itself, indole butyric acid. This listing is an absolute scam, falsely claiming that this has fungicide --- it absolutely, positively does NOT!!

This product has helped in the rooting process of most everything I have tried it on...most impressive was on a branch I cut from a neighbors rose bush that was near death. I would recommend..

This is an excellent product! In only a matter of weeks, my two solitary Rose of Sharon bushes have become next years hedge! This product does an excellent job of encouraging rooting from cuttings of woody-stemmed bushes. All cuttings now have strong root growth and are about to be transplanted into pots to continue to develop a root system over the winter on my cool porch. I've never felt so confident of my green thumb as I do now with Green Light Organic Rooting Hormone - 2 oz 06920A.

I read several reviews from other products and felt this one would best work for me. I inadvertently broke a large portion of my prayer plant off. The break had several new growths and I didn't want to loose it. I ordered this product (I received it within two days) and hoped it would take root.

I followed the instructions and to my pleasant surprise. . . . the stem took root. I have kept it moist and love the results I am getting.

This product works quite well. My cuttings that had been dipped into the root hormone powder before being planted experienced growth that far exceeded those that had been planted without it. Indeed I am a believer.
