Re: Clonex


Thanks, Kitty. The tomato set I use on my Barbados cherries is indolebutyric acid [and gibberellic acid mixed] but nowhere that concentration. Wonder if it would work?

Was going to try the willow water again, but when I went to fetch some willow cuttings the AM, I discovered that somebody [county, most likely] had removed them from the drainage swale that was covered with them. So need to find a new source.

Clonex is a gel. Iingredients are 2-Hydroxyethyl cellulose (1.2%) and
Indole butyric acid (0.3%) and water.
I can't find anything on the MSDS that covers their claim that "It contains
a full profile of nutrients and trace elements to nourish and empower the
new plants." I assume the cellulose component is what gets it to gel.
Indole butyric acid is, of course, the hormone, but I don't see any
indication as to what provides the fungicidal properties. I've checked MSDS
and fact sheets for both ingredients and found no claims of fungicidal
properties.

Obviously, not every ingredient makes its way onto the MSDS, but it would be
nice to know these things. I think I'lll email them about it and see if I
get an answer.

Keep us informed about its efficacy. You'll probably need a magnifying
glass to read them, but what does it say the active ingredients are?

The Clonex I bought on Ebay from England arrived today. the bottles
show
their date of manufacture; one is August of 05 and the other is
October of
05. shelf life is 2yrs, but they suggest using w/in a year. There
was no
problem with customs and it took about a week to get here. Even
though it
snowed today (and stuck!) it wasn't in my mailbox long when I picked
it up
when I went home for lunch, so I'm fairly certain there was no chance
for it
to get frozen along the way.

This product says it is suitable for use with softwood and
semi-hardwood
plant species, so I probably won't get to use it much until spring,
except
for a few items I have in the house. Their instructions show leaving
more
leaf surface on the cutting than I'm used to. "cut shoots tips with 4
or 5
pairs of leaves. Remove the two lower pairs of leaves" The
illustration
shows a plant with leaves as long as the person's hand and they don't
cut
the leaf in half to reduce transpiration.

The manufacturer is Growth Technology if anyone is interested in their
products.
