Of course, the same chemicals always seem to be present in rooting compounds and growth stimulators.
Many times they are either/or/both: Indole butyric acid (IBA) and naphthalene acetic acid (NAA)
I am not saying that superthrive is anything special or not.. I am only thinking that IBA and NAA are "known"? to stimulate root growth. In the case of tuberous plants...things that stimulate root growth, would also stimulate tuber growth..... doesnt that seem right?
As far as Lesters comments on his friend stating that the effect would only be possibly realized on young, "not-yet" fully developed plants... I am not sure I understand..... I would think that if the chemical had any effect.... it would exhibit that effect regardless....?

I looked up the acetic acid, another trade name for it is rootone!

Believe it or not, although I use it with some frequency, I have read that
superthrive is basically emulsified and crystaline fish oil.
> The formula of SuperThrive is a secret... but... it is a formulation of
vitamins and hormones... That is all the maker will say. It is not a
Fungicide, Growth regulator, or a fertilizer.... But, it really works.
Go to www.superthrive.com....... See what you can find out... I have not
checked it out as yet...
