Re: Clonex

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

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.
